Tropical Crunch Cake

tropical crunch cake2

This is a very simple, quick and fairly inexpensive dessert recipe. It came about probably five years ago when I made a Butter Pecan Peach cake for a church function and one of the ladies shared she didn’t care for peaches but that it would probably taste great with pineapple. The next time I made it I used pineapple and liked it even better than the one with peaches. This is yet another variation on a traditional Dump Cake recipe so it does use  a cake mix.
