Can Dump Cake with pie filling be frozen?
Leftover Dump Cake keeps best in the fridge. It will stay in the fridge for a couple of days. If you want it to keep longer, freezing Dump Cake is totally fine. It will last frozen for three months.
To unfreeze the cake let it defrost in the fridge, then reheat it in the microwave for 30 seconds.

The great thing about Dump Cake is that it’s basically made ahead already!
You can always make Dump Cake and refrigerate it, but it’s best eaten within a couple days. Be sure to refrigerate leftovers.

Yes, you can make a dump cake in a dutch oven, it just might take a bit longer to bake. I love how evenly a dutch oven cooks cake though, so if you have a dutch oven, try it!
Can you make Dump Cake with a cake mix?
Yes! Using cake mix one of my favorite ways to make dump cake! I kept hearing about a really easy dump cake recipe that uses cake mix and pie filling, and I knew I had to try it!
The verdict? Oh my it’s so easy and personally, I think it’s just as delicious as the time-consuming homemade way to make dump cake!

There are several different options regarding which cake mix you can use in this dump cake recipe. Most people use a yellow, butter or white cake mix.
For this recipe I used yellow cake mix because it works so well with the berries.
I’ve used cake mixes with pudding and without- it really does work either way. I think the leftovers are better if you use a cake mix without pudding. Just a personal preference though.
