"BUTTER DUMP CAKE" and a 2for 1 cake

Nancy J. Patrykus


This cake,has to be the simplest cake going!.
With a 5 minute prep time, 2 cans of fruit (your choice)and 1 box cake & 2 sticks of butter sliced on top!
Just a small piece will satisfy your sweet tooth!!
Ice cream is the perfect companion to this cake.
I have heard of dump cakes but this is the first one I have ever baked! The possibilities are endless!!
Recipe was giving verbally to me from a friend.
Any canned fruit can be used.
I can hardly wait to bake a blueberry and peach one. YUMMY!!
