Dump cake is the latest baking trend, and making it involves simple steps and minimal hassle. Simply dump all of the required ingredients into a pan, bake it in a slow cooker and serve. Grab your oven mitts and slow cooker and head to the nearest kitchen for a sweet and savory treat that will leave you begging for more.

Our dump cake is made with rich, gooey layers of chocolate that will melt in your mouth. If your sweet tooth is craving for something fruity, try baking an apple pie without the bottom crust. If you’d like to add a salty flavor to your chocolatey treat, drizzle the dump cake with peanut butter and Reese’s Pieces just before baking.
