10 Dreamy Dump Cake Recipes


10 Dreamy Dump Cake Recipes

What is a "Dump Cake"? By definition, it's a cake made by laying fruit, or a filling into a pan and then "dumping" cake mix over the top of it; or, a simple cake requiring only a single bowl for baking. 

If you've never made a dump cake before, then you're in for a super surprise, 'cause it's just about the easiest dessert you can make. You don't need any master baking skills to make a cake like this because it's basically a cake that's made by "dumping" your ingredients into a baking dish. Most dump cakes are even made using some shortcut ingredients, like pie filling and cake mix, which makes them even easier to whip up.  
If you love how easy these recipes are, and how the yummy results taste, then you're going to love our collection of dump cake recipes below.
