Yesterday was my sister Jenny’s 34th birthday! Her husband is in WA climbing Mt. Rainer…so I got to make her dinner and dessert (thanks to my mom for brining the dessert ingredients).
Dump cakes are great in a pinch. You can keep all of the ingredients on hand (you might already have them) and throw them together when surprise company arrives, or if it is your sis’s requested bday surprise. There are TONS of dump cake recipes out there, but I personally LOVE the cherry and blueberry varieties. You can sub any fruit you’d like in this recipe to shake things up!
2 cans cherry pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Pour the pie filling in a Pyrex. Over the top of the pie filling, shake about 3/4 of the cake mix. Cut the butter into about 16 slices and arrange on top of the cake mix. Bake for about 30 min, turn, and bake for about 20 min or until the top is brown and the pie filling is bubbling. Serve with vanilla ice cream and celebrate!
