Dump Cake at Las Islas Ranch

Las Islas Ranch is our retreat

These are just a few pictures that we've taken over the past
few years.
You'll see deer, turkey, javelina, wildflowers,
bluebonnets (our state flower), blooming cactus, my husband with friends chatting by the firepit,
and my husband and me.
We go here to refresh and "replenish".

Today while we are here I have made
Dump Cake... a ranch favorite.
Photography-challenged I am even tested further
due to just being at the ranch (poor lighting and only
serviceable dishes)
Oh well...

This recipe is from my friend, Beverly Moody, who is
a wonderful cook!

Beverly with her husband, Pat
and friend, "Dobie".

Beverly's Dump Cake

1 can cherry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple, drained (save juice!)
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, melted and pineapple juice mixed with it
1 c. coconut
1 c. chopped pecans

In a large pyrex dish layer:
Pie filling and crushed pineapple, mixed
Sprinkle cake mix over mixture
Drizzle melted butter and pineapple juice over cake mix
Top with coconut and pecans

Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees


I am linking to two of my favs!!

A beautiful spot to be. I can see how it would refresh you.
Our fire pit at our cabin always draws a group of people.
