  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 can (21 ounces) of lemon pie filling
  • 1 package (8 ounces) of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) to create the ideal baking environment for your cake.
  2. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish using melted butter or a non-stick spray to ensure easy removal of the cake after baking.
  3. Layer the ingredients in the prepared dish: start by spreading the lemon pie filling evenly at the bottom, then dot the softened cream cheese over the lemon filling. Don’t worry about perfection; the charm of this dump cake lies in its rustic appearance.
  4. Sprinkle the yellow cake mix evenly over the cream cheese and lemon filling layers. Do not mix; simply layer the ingredients on top of each other.
  5. Drizzle the melted butter evenly over the cake mix layer, ensuring most of the mix is moistened. This will help the cake mix develop a delightful golden crust as it bakes.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the edges are bubbly. Keep an eye on it as baking times can vary depending on your oven.
  7. Allow the cake to cool slightly before serving. It can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature according to your preference.
