Dump Cake (Cobbler)

Back and forth, back and forth. I had a hard time deciding if I should post this recipe on our little cooking blog here. Because while it was a tasty treat, I have to admit, it wasn't the best dessert I've ever had, don't get me wrong, it was good, just not the best dessert we've ever posted. But it does have several redeeming qualities.

For one, it is truly the ultimate Super Simple dessert, boasting only 3 ingredients, and you can literally throw it together in under 5, make that under 3 minutes. Also, you quite possibly have those 3 ingredients in your kitchen right at this moment. Second, it is good! It certainly isn't quite as delicious as our Chocolate Fudge Torte is , but it is surely so, so much easier and cheaper to make. And thirdly, is that a word, everyone who tried it the night I made it liked it, especially the kids. So all in all it is a good dessert, and best of all, it is called Dump Cake! Although I've decided to refer to it as Dump Cobbler, but either way, the word Dump is in the name, and quite certainly it will be the only recipe you have that will have the word Dump in it.

We do this with yellow cake and a can of peaches (with juice) or devil's food and cherry pie filling. You don't even have to stir the cake and filling together; just put in the filling first, then cake mix, and butter on top. A good variation on the choc/cherry (as my husband and I find the true dump cake a little dry) is to add 1 t. almond extract and 2 eggs to the cake mix and filling. Stir and bake 25-30 min at 350. While that's baking make a glaze using 1 c. sugar, 5 T. butter, and 1/3 c. milk, brought to boiling and then boil for one more minute. Remove from heat and add 1 c. chocolate chips. Stir until smooth. Pour over warm cake. You will not be disappointed. :)
