Peach State says: Cooking On The Light Side!

Last Saturday I was asked to share my recipe for the Dump Cake I served.
I warned them it was not the usual recipe and that they may not like the list of ingredients.
With each new bite their need-to-know-mentality insisted. Well here it is…Cooking On The Lighter Side !

Dump Cake:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

(I recommend using a 9×9 square glass baking dish or a pan close in size)

Lightly grease the pan
Dump a can of crushed pineapple (not drained) and spread evenly
Dump a can of lightly drained cherries (the ones packed in water) and space them around evenly
Dump a Sugar-Free Yellow cake mix and spread evenly
Pour a half a cup of melted Unsalted butter
evenly over the top of the cake mix.

I bake it until the cake mix is not gooey! I know that sounds slightly childish but I was at a loss for words to fit the description. I cooked mine for about 45-50 minutes but I was cooking two…one for my family and one to share.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is the fact that my hubby could not tell the difference. He loved it…but he did have his with a scoop of ice cream. I love this recipe because of the versatility it allows. It is a great breakfast dish for special occasions as well as a warm dessert dish. I know some of you might remember my posting this recipe before…but being the friend I am…I am sharing it again. But there is something new I found the other day…a Chocolate Dump Cake!. Do you want the recipe? I took a screen shot so I would not forget about it. It looks wonderful and easy! Needless to say I will try this recipe after I tweak it a bit…then I will share what I did as I do love Cooking On The Lighter Side!
