Hi there, friends! We have been all about dump-and-go meals here lately at Home Pressure Cooking. Yesterday our kitchen was like an assembly line with all the dump meals we prepared. You can find our Hobo dinner meals. Keep in mind whether you have the Ninja Foodi or the Instant Pot, these can be made just the same. Meal planning and prepping is a great thing given our current situation. Look here for the Instant Pot Dump Cake Recipe

This is the Ninja Fooie Dump Cake

Today, I wanted to make a cute little dump cake. I could have made a larger one, but that only would have meant I would eat more. This was a perfect serving of four for our family. You can however make a larger one and I will source that dump cake recipe as well.

For this recipe, you need either a 3 cup bundt pan or a 7-inch Springform pan. You will need one yellow cake mix, one can of pie filling of choice, and either a stick of butter or half a stick of butter depending on which size you make.

We chose to use our flower pan as it is always our go-to for portion control, especially with desserts.

Dump cakes aren’t like regular cakes where you can flip them over and have a perfect little cake. They are more of a scooper cake served warm with ice cream or whip cream on top. Trust me, you won’t care what it looks like because it is just that delicious.

I am sure by now you are drooling, so I will just get to the recipe.

NOTE: If you have the Mealthy CrispLid you can also make this recipe just the same. You may have to tweak the time and watch it does not get too golden on top. 🙂
