Crock Pot Dump Cake

Crock pot Dump Cake

This is perfect for those nights when you have dinner covered, but want something warm and decadent for dessert. It seriously took my less than 5 minutes to put this in my crock pot and get it started. 3 Hours Later, amazing deliciousness! You could get creative and use different types of filling, for me, Cherry is my fav.

You are going to want to use a larger crockpot for this recipe. Mine is 6 qt.

Top with the dry cake mix and then drizzle the melted butter or margarine over the top. Cover and let it do it’s thing for 2 1/2 to 3 hours on low. DO NOT OPEN THE LID. Every time you open the lid you are releasing heat and moisture. Increasing the dryness and the cook time.

    I am definitely going to try it. I sometimes make this in the oven with cherry and pineapple. But i will definitely try it in the crock pot!
