BAKE IT: Southern Dump Cake


Dump cakes are the new "it" Dessert. Everywhere you look you see recipes for them. Funny thing is, you actually do not need a recipe for one. The idea of a dump cake, is to literally dump all your ingredients together and bake. Dump cakes can have anything in them fruit, nuts, candy, ect. 

You can use any cake mix to do this, I am using chocolate or homemade cake mix. Here is a quick way to get you started dumping and baking.

Let us begin:

Preheat your oven to 350'

In a bundt pan, pour oil and swirl around to coat sides.


Pour excess oil into large mixing bowl, set pan aside.

Dump in all remaining batter ingredients, cake mix, pudding, and mix well.

Dump in your mix-ins, stirring just to incorporate.


Pour batter into bundt pan, if there is a tad bit of oil pooled it is okay.

Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes in pan.

Invert onto serving dish and allow to cool completely.



Serve and enjoy!
