Tropical dump cake

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 20 oz. can cubed pineapplecrushed would work too
  • 1 15 oz. can tropical fruit mix
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 package 18.25oz. orange cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Orange Supreme, but any one would work)
  • 10 oz. a little over two sticks butter
  • 1/2 c Instant Oatmeal

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • First, drain all of the juice from the tropical fruit and maybe 1/3 of the juice from the pineapple into a bowl. Add the corn starch and sugar and mix well…there should be no lumps. Put in a pan (I like using a small omelet pan, but a sauce pan would work too) over low to medium heat with 2tbsp. of the butter and thicken up…it should become the consistency of pie filling. Add a little more corn starch if it doesn’t get thick enough.
  • In the meantime, dump the rest of the fruit (with the remaining juice) in a greased Pyrex dish (I really have no idea what size it is…not the biggest one in the Pyrex set, but the next biggest).
  • Once the juice mixture thickens up on the stove, pour it on top of the fruit in the Pyrex.
  • Pour the cake mix over that.
  • Mix in the oatmeal to the cake mix (just kind of sprinkle it over and mix it in with your fingers).
  • Melt the rest of the butter and pour on top evenly…it should cover all of the cake mix.
  • Put in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
  • Serve with ice cream.
