Strawberry Dump Cake
If you need a simple foolproof dessert for Valentine’s Day, try this easy dump cake recipe. While this is called a dump cake the resulting dessert is more like a pink cobbler than a cake. As strawberry boxed cake mix is used for the topping, this is double strawberry and pink through and through. This is a classic “true” just dump the three ingredients in a baking pan and bake. As long as the ingredients are somewhat evenly distributed, the recipe is pretty much fool proof. Even if you slightly over or under bake the dessert it will still be tasty.

All you need to make the dessert is:
- a can of strawberry pie filling

- 1 1/2 sticks of butter
You will also need a baking dish and non stick cooking spray.
First preheat the oven and coat the interior of a 9 x 13 baking dish with non stick spray.
Dump a can of strawberry pie filling into the baking pan and spread evenly across the bottom.
Pour dry cake mix over the strawberry filling and spread it out. I used strawberry cake mix, but white cake mix would also be a great choice.
Drizzle melted butter over the top of cake mix, covering as evenly as you can.
Bake for 30 minutes, cool a few minutes before serving warm or serve a room temperature. Top with ice cream or whipped cream.
