Here are 50+ easy dump cake recipes for you to enjoy. A quick dessert with fruit is sometimes all you need to satisfy your sweet tooth and these are great.
Ok so I absolutely love easy dump cake recipes and am always thinking of new combinations to make that my family will absolutely love! I have made them in my Instant Pot, crockpot, and in the oven as well. I don’t care how they’re done, they’re an easy throw together dessert that’s perfect when I want something sweet or company comes over unexpectedly and I need something fast!
Let us know which easy dump cake is your favorite, or maybe there’s one you’ve made recently that’s not on the list….I’d love to give your idea a whirl too!!
These are the 3 main ingredients you need to make almost all dump cakes listed below (and any add ins as well, but the basics are here to give you an idea)
- Box of cake mix – you can find a variety here (but…..spice cake mix is probably my favorite during Fall and Winter)
- Can of pie filling or pumpkin puree – this is how to make homemade pumpkin puree
- Eggs or melted butter – eggs will make it rise more than butter will
