I agree with others - this to me is not a dump cake since you have to make the cake batter as per the box - would be more of an upside down cherry/pineapple cake. To me a dump cake is u put the wet (fruit, etc) in the pan, sprinkle the dry cake mix over that, and bake. (ie dumped into the pan and baked - no mixing involved) same as putting in a dry mix and pouring a can of soda over it - ingredients just dumped into the pan with out having to mix before baking - thats a dump cake.

As written, this is not a dump cake. The editors probably haven't tried it. If you pour 1/2 pound of melted butter user a cake batter, it is not going to turn out well.

What do they mean a can of coconut? I've never seen one. Do they mean coconut milk?

Hi the Best Easy Dump imply that you mix the cake mix into a batter and "pour" over the fruit in the pan...this would really be a must use the cake mix dry...thus the butter...thank you

jmklem68 is correct on the conversions. Eight TBSP equal 1/2 cup, not four TBSP as msauer said. Enjoy the cake.

Hi cken - For step 3, you will need to prepare the cake mix batter as directed on the cake mix box, using whatever ingredients are called for (oil, eggs, water, etc.). You then use that batter as a layer to make your cake. We hope this helps! -Editors of RecipeLion
