Cherry Dump Cake

Dump cakes are the easiest and possibly the best of all cake recipes to make at home. This Cherry Dump Cake is a truly effortless dessert – you just take a few ingredients (one of which is canned or homemade cherry pie filling), dump them into a pan, and bake in the oven. You have a tasty cake with almost no effort at all. Last week I made this cake using baking soda and I mixed all ingredients together. The final result was good to eat, but it didn’t look nice – it had some unappealing greenish/purple color. This time I dumped cherry filling in the bottom of the pan and covered it with cake mixture, using baking powder instead of soda. This was much better! And I’ve noticed one more thing: if I use just 1 teaspoon of baking powder, the cake is more cobbler-like. If I increase the amount of baking powder to 2 1/2 teaspoons, it turns into a true cake. Serve this quick and easy Cherry Dump Cake with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra special treat. Read more...
