This incredible three-ingredient slow cooker pineapple dump cake is another great sweet dish that you can easily prepare.
By the time this simple cake has finished cooking, you will have a delicious cake mix with bits of flavor-packed pineapple throughout it. It is an absolute must-try if you are a fan of pineapple-flavored desserts.
A single dump cake should feed roughly four people. You can easily double or triple the recipe if you need to feed more. I also recommend having something to go with it, such as cream.
Like most dump cakes that you can make in the slow cooker, the leftovers are well worth keeping. Keep them stored in the fridge or freezer until you are feeling hungry. It should last up to three to four days if stored correctly in the refrigerator or three months in the freezer.
Perfecting the Recipe
For the best results, I highly recommend that you use pineapple pieces. You can use crushed pineapple as well, but I find that it does not turn out nearly as nice.
Using different cake mixes will result in a different style of cake. If you want to experiment, then you can try using a chocolate cake mix instead.
There are several methods of spreading the butter so that it covers the entire cake. I simply cube the butter and scatter it across the top of the cake mix. Another option is to melt it and drizzle it over the top. Either method will work just fine.

What to Serve with Pineapple Dump Cake
Below are some ideas on what to serve with this delicious cake.
My favorite addition to most dump cakes is a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. I prefer vanilla as it does not tend to conflict with the flavors of the cake.
Another option is to make some delicious homemade custard. I absolutely love pouring the custard over the top of this dessert. If you do not have time, then store-bought custard will also work.
Lastly, this cake goes great with a simple drizzle of cream over the top. I like this option as it is super easy and helps cut through some of the pineapple cake’s sweetness. I highly recommend giving it a try.

- You should not need to add any more liquid as the butter and pineapple will provide enough.
