Accidental Recipe Awesomeness – PINEAPPLE DUMP CAKE!

On Sunday night I was craving something sweet. Since completing my hCG diet, I have actually stopped eating most sweets and now it is a rare treat. I also like it better that way! When I do crave them, fruit of some sort will suffice. So I know Pineapple Preserves AREN’T really fruit…but Hey at least I didn’t eat a bag of kit kats!!

After gathering things from my pantry I ended up with, pancake mix, french vanilla cake mix, cinnamon, pineapple preserves, 1 egg and milk. I stood there for a minute and then it hit me….CAKE!

So here it is, the best, most random desert I have ever made!!



What You will need:

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup French Vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup of pancake mix (the kind that only requires water to make pancakes)
  • 2 tbsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 jar of Pineapple Preserves (you won’t use the whole jar, just a few spoonfuls.)

Pre-heat your oven to 350 and grease your baking dish. I just added a little butter to the pan and let it melt for a minute while the oven was heating up. Combine pancake and cake mix, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly. Once ingredients are well mixed, add in 3-4 large spoonfuls of pineapple preserves. Mix again and pour in baking dish. Bake for 16-18 minutes.

When the cake is done, and still very warm, spread 2 spoonfuls of the pineapple preserves over the top for a glaze. Let cool and either slice or like I did, just dump some in a bowl!!




Both The Hubbs and Little Man LOVED this stuff, and because of the pancake batter it is not a heavy, dense cake. It stays light and fluffy!`I will definitely be making this again! You can use really any preserves that you have on hand. I hope you all enjoy this as much as We do!!




*My Sister is EXTREMELY allergic to pineapple, so I just want to apologize to her for this recipe. <3<3<3 LOVE YOU Little Lady!!!
