Dump, dump, CAKE!

THE EASIEST THING YOU WILL EVER MAKE EVAAAR! Also, to my surprise it has impressed a great number of people. It looks professional and tastes like MmmMmm, so I can see why; however, the name dump cake makes people a bit weary when they first hear it. I mean who hears “Dump cake” for the first time and doesn’t assume the worst. Anyway, if you think people will be like “ew, gross” introduce it as easy as cake and tell them the real name later ;). Here’s the recipe:

http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/04/dump-cake-a-potluckers-paradise/

Ingredients:

1 can of crushed pineapples

1 can of cherry pie filling

1 box of yellow/white cake mix

1 1/2 – 2 sticks of butter/margarine

9×13 cake pan

Method:

1. Dump pineapple into pan with the juice šŸ˜€

2. Dump cherry pie filling into pan

3. Swirl the two into awesome goodness

4. Dump the cake mix on top of the mixture (fork the clumps if you want)

5. cut slivers of butter and place them evenly over the top of the cake mix

6. Bake at 350F for an hour (I usually check on it at the 30min mark and add butter to the places the butter didn’t melt too)

Notes:

I really like this because it tastes amazing and costs about $5 to make. I’ve served it with vanilla ice cream and that was really nice because the cake is warm and the ice cream is cold. Whip cream is also a nice little addition. When I made it this last time, I forgot whether to bake it at 350F or 400F, so I went with 400F. We also took it out at 30min (but still impressed like 5 of 8 people :P). I think next time I am going to try to switch out the pie filling or maybe the pineapples. Blueberry and cherry? Blackberry and pineapple? WHO KNOWS?! The possibilities are ENDLESS! As I contemplate the how to make the next dump cake I wish you well and happy cooking!

P.S: I forgot to take a picture when I finished making the cake…so I took pictures of the leftovers. They still take great though šŸ˜€
