This recipe is old and has many variations.  It is an old favorite that be baked in an oven or around the campfire.  It’s called Dump Cake because everything just gets dumped into the pan.  Easy to make, and quick to bake.  It never lasts long at this house.

  1. I genuinely love to consume dump cakes considering that it is definitely sweet and simple to create. My mother used to make dump cakes for myself and my daughter. All a person need are a few ingredients that can be easily purchased at the grocery store.

  2. I remember those! Havin’t done one in years and remember loving it when I did. Gonna try this, again, with my fresh peaches coming in… Thanks for the reminder. Looks so good. Don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I almost never think of desserts. 😎
