“I'm a dump cake fan due to the quickness of the recipes, but lots of them are too sweet for my taste. Put this one together and like Goldy Locks said, " This is just right!".”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (15 ounce) can bartlett pears, diced (I buy them already diced)
  • 1 (20 ounce) can apple pie filling (love Comstock brand)
  • 1 (18 1/2 ounce) boxcarrot cake
  • 12 cup butter, melted
  • chopped nuts (optional)
  • flaked coconut (optional)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a 9x13 baking pan, put in the pears, leaving about two tbls of juice in can.
  3. Spoon the apples over the pears. You can mix together if you wish.
  4. Sprinkle the cake mix over the fruits so that all is amply covered.
  5. Add any optional ingredients at this time (I did not use any).
  6. Pour melted butter slowly over most of the area.
  7. Place in oven and turn heat down to 325 degrees.
  8. Bake 30 minutes, turn pan, bake another 15 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool off some before serving.
  10. Wonderful as is -- even better with vanilla ice cream sprinkled with some cinnamon.
