Cherry Dump Cake in the Solar Oven

This morning when I looked out, it was partly cloudy and it looked like rain.  “Good” I thought, “we sure need some rain”.  So I didn’t plan on putting out my solar oven.  But about noon, I looked out again, and the sun was hot and bright. So there I was, with a perfect cooking day, and nothing to cook.  A quick look in the pantry and right there were there ingredients for one of our favorite quick desserts.  Although the name says CAKE, this really is more of a cobbler type dessert.  And it is so very easy to make.

Easy Solar Dump Cake

Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake baked in the Solar Oven

Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake

1 can cherry pie filling

1 can crushed pineapple (I used a big can because I like lots of pineapple.  But a small can will do)

1/2 to 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1 yellow or white cake mix (dry)

1 stick of butter or margarine (cut into pieces)

Place the solar oven out to begin preheating.  Dump the cherry pie filling and pineapple, juice and all, into a pan.  Add the nuts. Top with the dry cake mix.  Place butter pieces on the top.  Bake in the solar oven for 2 – 3 hours.

Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake is an easy dessert to bake in the solar oven.  It spoons out into a bowl, much like a soft cobbler.  Try it with vanilla ice cream.  Delicious!

  1. Lordy, Lordy, I forgot all about dump cakes! Used to make them all the time when the girls were small. We loved them — so easy and so good! Thanks for the reminder and the recipe. I wouldn’t have thought of the combination and, yet, now I just have to have one! Have a great day!
