I don't remember my mom ever making this cake but my oldest sister, Niki, does. Niki calls it NO MIX CAKE. She said they loved it still hot with vanilla ice cream. It sounded great to me but I had a different Dump Cake recipe that I loved, I'll include it too.

For my mom's dump cake you could use any fruit you wanted. Refrigerate the leftovers for later, if there are any.
