HomeApril A-to-Z ChallengeApril A-to-Z Challenge 2012D is for Dairy-Free Dump Cake and a Deal

Some people are vegan and some people are lactose-intolerant and some people are watching their cholesterol and some people just Don’t Do Dairy. Well, this is a Dessert you’ll find Delightful and Delicious.

Dump Cake is something we used to have, a family tradition, like chili mac and fish from St. Cecilia’s on Friday. Back in the day, we made it with butter, of course, but now we use vegan margarine so our vegan daughter can have some. Please feel free to use butter, if you prefer. Or coconut oil. Or lard, I don’t care, suit yourself. I’m not the shortening police.

Dairy-Free Dump Cake

  • 2 cans of fruit and/or fruit pie filling
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick vegan margarine
  • nuts of any kind, if you like

Butter a square cake pan. Dump in the contents of the fruit/pie filling. If you use two different kinds of fruit (many prefer pineapple and cherry — ick), dump in one kind and spread it around, then dump in the other kind and spread it on top, trying not to stir them together. Then dump the cake mix on top. Cut the butter into slices and cover the top of the cake mix. The nuts can be dumped anywhere in these layers, from the bottom to the top.

Bake at 350F for one hour.

How easy is that? Way, that’s how.

    • Glad to be of help, Jean! I frequently post vegan/vegetarian recipes, so you might want to look at my recipe tab up there above the posts, and check out the Foods category in my blogroll for vegetarian sites. VEGANS EAT PENCIL SHAVINGS is a particular favorite of mine. πŸ™‚


  1. We used to do something like this, but we actually mixed up the cake mix, put LOTS of butter in the bottom of the pan, sprinkled brown sugar thickly onto it, then spread pineapple on it, then poured the cake batter over the top. And when it was done we turned it out of the pan and voila, a cake with a lovely mapley carmelly pineappley topping.

  2. Hello Marian! Like your interesting writing style of using letter to make the title!! Your suggested dish will be warm welcomed by the kids as they (generally) don’t like to have milk. Thanks for the recipe of ‘Dairy-Free Dump Cake’.
