Strawberry dump cake

Ready for a quick and easy dessert? How about a strawberry dump cake. This is an easy recipe because you don't even have to mix anything. All you need to do is dump the ingredients in a pan in layers.

One thing I do that's different is to use a strawberry cake mix instead of a the usual white or yellow cake. This really intensifies the strawberry flavor. After it's baked you get a beautiful strawberry cobbler with a golden crunchy topping and a hint of tartness from the pineapple.

This is one of my favorite go-to dessert recipes for a party because it makes a lot and it's so darn good! I think it's best served warm and you can make it even better by putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. This is one dessert recipe you've got to try!
