What is the difference between a dump cake and a cobbler?
Two traditional baked fruit desserts are both rich in flavor and easy to make. Cobblers often have a crumb topping made from flour, sugar, butter, or other fat (often mixed with some sort of flavoring), while dump cakes usually use boxed cake mix ingredients for their topping.
Both can be topped with fresh fruits like peaches and blueberries that were either frozen beforehand or canned right before the baking process starts – how convenient!
Should Dump Cake be refrigerated?
Bake your dump cake immediately after you assemble it, and store it in the refrigerator when finished eating. You can cover the dish with plastic wrap or my favorite beeswax food covers.
Do you stir a dump cake?
No, do not stir the ingredients in your dump cake.
