HOW TO: Slow Cooker Dump Cake

This past year gave rise to the ever popular dump cake trend. Most dump cakes originate from cast iron camping cakes and contain the same base ingredients: cake mix, filling, butter, and water. You can use any combination to create a wide variety of delightful desserts. I will list a few at the end of the directions, but here are the basics to get you started.

Full time for 4qt slow cooker 5 hours low, 3 1/2 hours high
Full time for 6qt slow cooker 3 1/2 hours low, 2 hours high
Servings 6-8

The needs-

1 box cake mix
1lg can or 2 small cans (28oz total) fruit filling
1 stick butter, melted
1-2 tbsp water

The know-

Lightly spray slow cooker with cooking spray.

Pour fruit filling into slow cooker making sure it covers the bottom evenly.

Add cake mix in even later across top of fruit.

Add in butter and let sit a moment.

Add only enough water to full moisten the surface.

Cover with lid and walk away.

Cake is ready when slightly firm to touch.

Scoop and serve with ice cream or whipped cream, cheers!
