Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Last fall I discovered the beauty of dump cake. The name is really not the most appealing (let’s be honest) but the end result – so good! You can make dump cake with any pie filling that you like, but I really like apple. I was shocked to discover that it only takes about 5 minutes to put together. You literally dump the ingredients into a pan, give it a quick mix with a fork, and sprinkle it with cake mix and melted butter.
