Because I love my Instant Pot so much, I am always looking for some great recipes that go beyond the usual chicken or boiled eggs. This easy Pineapple Cherry Dump Cake is no exception.

The flavor of pineapples, cherries, and buttery cake topped with vanilla ice cream is so refreshing and delicious. It’s light, super tropical, and you can make it any time of the year – not just for summer months. I like making this on cold winter evenings and serving warm, it just brings me back to laying on the beach and relaxing on a tropical shore… Try it for yourself and see what I mean!
