    You don't mention if you have to drain the pineapple before putting in the baking dish. It seems like it may be too much liquid.


    I love dump cakes. Blueberries with lemon cake mix, awesome!

    Is the pineapple drained, or do I use the syrup? I usually put brown sugar on after the pineapple. Can I still do that?

      Found almost identical recipe online. Drain pineapple. Yes you can do that with brown sugar.
