    Dump Cake

    easy dessert

    This recipe is an old standby of many a grandma, but I started making it just a few years ago. It instantly became a family favorite, for Brianna, especially, who has asked for it to be her birthday cake for a few years running. It's super easy, and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, it's super pleasing.

    1 can of fruit pie filling of your choice (peach is my favorite; cherry is Brianna's)

    1 box white or yellow cake mix

    1/2 cup melted butter

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with non-stick spray. Dump then evenly spread the pie filling in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the DRY cake mix evenly over the filling. Do not mix! Drizzle the melted butter evenly over cake mix. (Some will remain dry; don't worry about it.) Again, do not mix the ingredients. Bake 30-40 minutes, until top is browned and center no longer seems gooey. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

    Variations: Try out different combinations of cake and filling. One of the most popular at my house — also one of the most rich — was a chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling. Enjoy!

    Makes 6-8 servings.
