How to make a dump cake
Making a dump cake recipe couldn't be any easier. All you need to add your favorite canned fruit on the bottom of a casserole dish followed by a layer of your favorite boxed cake mix, then add softened butter to the top.
The butter helps create the crumb topping while the cake bakes. Bake until the edges are lightly golden brown and then test to see if the center of the cake is set by placing a toothpick in the middle.
Allow the cake to cool and serve with fresh whipped cream or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream.. My favorite basic dump cake recipe is my recipe for Peach Crunch Cake.
It's an old recipe from my blog that I include in the collection below. I've made it numerous times for different occasions and it's always delicious and always gone by the end of the night.
Christmas dump cakes
For most people Christmas is a time for enjoying indulgent desserts, cookies and pies. However, a lot of so-called "Christmas desserts" are usually family recipes passed down from generation to generation.
Why not change that and bake something easier with a dump cake made with the flavors of Christmas! You can combine classic Christmas flavors like raspberry, cranberry and peppermint with a variety of fun ingredients such as marshmallows, caramel sauce or white chocolate chips.
Dress up your dump cake with festive sprinkles or spices like cinnamon or nutmeg! A dump cake is the perfect finale to any holiday meal.
- For most dump cakes, you can store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- To defrost the frozen dump cake, place it in the refrigerator the night before to defrost and then reheat in the microwave for a minute or until it is warmed through.
Air-Tight Storage Containers: these air-tight storage containers that help keep food fresh for longer. Use them to store fresh baked goods, cookies, fruit and vegetables, left overs, and more. The silicone lids lock to close to ensure an air tight seal. The stackable, multi-size design makes these containers easy to store. They're perfectly sized for the fridge, freezer, or cupboard.
