How to make a dump cake in the Ninja Foodi

Years ago on my home and crafty website (Debbiedoo’s), I made my first cherry pie filling/pineapple dump cake. To this day I still get hundreds of visits on that recipe. It was such a hit, I thought I would bring a pressure cooking version over on this side.

The only thing I would do differently on this recipe I am sharing today is NOT using a golden butter cake mix. I would use a simple yellow box cake mix. It was an overkill of butter in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious and gone in no time. I prefer using simple yellow cake mixes. I must have bought this one in error.

Just think of all the fun variations you can make of these dump cakes. The sky is the limit. Trust me, I have made many variations in the over throughout the years. They really are a no-brainer, great dessert to make. Keep in mind, it is called a dump cake for a reason. 1. you do simply dump everything in, and 2. They don’t come out looking like a pretty all-put-together cake. Keep in mind when serving it is best to use a scoop and a nice deep bowl topped with some vanilla ice cream.
