DUMP CAKE - Easy Dessert Cake - Cobbler

I have no idea where this recipe came from, all I know is that almost every body who cooks has a version of this in their recipe box. It's one of the easiest cobbler style desserts I've ever tried - you simply "dump" a can of pie filling in a greased cake pan, then "dump" a box of DRY cake mix on top of that then drizzle melted butter over the whole kit-n-kaboodle and bake.

Honestly, the first time I ever saw one of these made (Robyn S. it was at your house over 25 years ago!) I though, "OMG, it's going to taste awful!" Boy, was I wrong. It was one of the richest desserts I had ever had up to that point and it was delicious. It really is a twist on a cobbler recipe, not really a cake but I guess "dump cobbler" sounded too much like a break up with a shoe repair guy, lol.

In order to make it a "tiny food" I simply do the recipe in individual baking dishes and bake for a shorter period, usually closer to 30 minutes, but test them after 15 minutes and then every 5. You can also simply dish individual servings up in some fun stemmed glassware or for an appetizer party drop a small mouthful on some decorative spoons, top with a dollop of whipped cream and a mint leaf or some other fun garnish.

Anyway, it's not gourmet or classic cooking but it really is scrumptious and actually easier than making a cake from a mix! Try it out, top it off with a great vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream (sorry, I cannot stand those fake whipped creams) and enjoy!

BTW, The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday and I'm posting the Kentucky Derby Martini tomorrow in it's honor at The Martini Diva.
