I’ve made many a dump cake in my lifetime, but this Strawberry Shortcake Dump Cake is the first I’ve made with strawberries.

Which is so odd because I love strawberries.

But I’m actually not that big a fan of strawberry pie unless it’s fresh.

And the great thing about dump cakes usually is that you just dump cans of pie filling in.

So I compromised and used one can of strawberry pie filling but also used a bunch of fresh strawberries.

Which was the perfect marriage let me tell you.

And while you do have to cut some berries up, this dump cake is still easy.

With just four ingredients.

Strawberry pie filling.

Fresh strawberries.

Strawberry Cake Mix (dry).

And butter.

While you can usually get strawberries year round, now is the time to make this dessert.

Strawberry season is just starting…at least around here.

Peak season will be June.

Our farm down the road is having a baby animals and berry event.

Which is what it sounds like.

Lots of little baby farm animals.

Plus U-pick strawberries.

We, of course, are going to it.

Because how can you pass that up?

Especially when it’s down the street. 🙂

Can you use all fresh strawberries?

You probably can.

But they you are going to have to add sugar.

How much depends on how sweet you like things.

Can you use all strawberry pie filling?


If you do, it’s 2 (21 oz) cans.

Do you have to use strawberry cake mix?

No, you don’t.

It would be great with yellow or white cake as well.

I just chose the strawberry because I love the pink color.

And as always it’s a great day to order my cookbook.
