Dump Cakes in a Jiffy
I will admit that I have a tendency to get lazy about baking when weather starts to get warmer. It’s a shame, too, because that’s when produce is at its best and baking with fruit is the most fun. But something about the combination of the heat and all the work that goes into baking, plus having the oven on for long periods of time makes me want to avoid baking.
Last year searches for “dump cake” increased over 600% on Google. I had to find out what everyone was so interested in! Turns out it has to do with ease (many use boxed cake mix) – and they are fun. These are the kind of recipes that are so easy it makes me feel like I have no right to complain. What could be simpler than dumping a bunch of no-fuss ingredients together in one dish and letting it bake while you sit in the shade and sip a cool glass of lemonade? Let’s get dumping.
