As many times as I have personally made a "dump cake", I can't believe I have never shared one on this blog. Last Saturday the Tasty Bunch gang met for dinner and dessert (back at one of our houses). Friends Carol and Keith made reservations for the 12 of us (6 couples) at Gram & Dun, a restaurant at Country Club Plaza in Kansas City and then we went to Friends Patricia and Gary's for dessert.

Patricia tried a new recipe for her called Cherry Dump Cake. While Patricia did use cherry pie filling, you can substitute any flavor pie filling. Since she had never made it before, she was a little concerned because some of the cake mix was still powdery. I asked her if she melted the butter and drizzled it over it. She said that was the recipe said to do. I told her I always thinly sliced the stick of butter and completely covered the top. Then it all cooks. 


2      cans cherry pie filling
1       chocolate cake mix (any flavor of chocolate will work)
1       stick butter
1/2   chopped nuts
1/2   mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 - inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Dump the cans of cherry pie filling in the bottom of the pan and spread it out evenly.

Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the pie filling. (Break up any clumps. Patricia said she sifted the cake mix.)

Thinly slice the stick of butter and place the slices evenly over the top.

Sprinkle the nuts on top. Then add the chocolate chips.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Spoon out to serve. 

Tastes great alone 

or with a scoop of ice cream.

Here are some of the picture I took down at the Plaza. The Plaza always looks so beautiful as they outline the buildings with lights for the holidays.
