With just a few simple ingredients added to a basic yellow cake mix, this vegan pineapple upside-down "dump" cake is ready to pop into the oven in just two minutes. It's called a "dump" cake because that's what you do. No mixing needed, just dump the ingredients right into the cake pan. If you're vegan, be sure to use a vegan cake mix, such as Duncan Hines.
This pineapple dump cake recipe will be a hit even with people who aren't vegan, since it really is an "accidentally vegan" recipe.
"Semi-homemade" cake mix recipes, which turn store-bought boxed cake mix into something a little more special, are very popular. Vegan cake mix lends itself to a variety of recipe options, like cookies or even slow cooker dump cakes. The limit is your imagination.
