Hey there beautiful SigKaps!
March is a time for luck. According to St. Patrick’s Day that is. This month has proven to be a very lucky month for me. A lot of good things are coming in my future and I can’t wait to tell you about them. But for now.. you have to wait! OH! The SUSPENSE!
Much like Mrs. Billie Keller, whenever something special is happening we have a few things that we like to make. In my family, it has always been taquitos and dump cake. My brother just recently had his birthday, and also got married on leap day! At one point, our mom wasn’t going to be able to make it out to Portland from Kentucky, so I made the arrangements for her to be there. We made these arrangements after she had told my brother that she wasn’t able to make it. We completely surprised him! It was absolutely wonderful!
I was the lucky one in the family to be able to witness the joy on my brother’s face to know that his mom was going to be able to be present for his wedding. So when we surprised him, we made him taquitos and dump cake. One of these days I’ll post the recipe for taquitos, but you all can also email me for it. They take two days to make…so you are considered lucky if they are made for you. Dump cake is much the same way. It’s super easy and you can make it all the time if you really wanted to, but to me that would just take away from how wonderful it is. If you make something too often then everybody starts to get bored with it. Keep it fresh and keep it sparse, and they will love it forever!
You will need:
- Vanilla or Yellow Box cake mix
- Cherry or Raspberry Pie filling
- 1 large can of Pineapple tidbits
Step One: DUMP pineapple tidbits and juice into bottom of pan.
Step Two: DUMP pie filling on top. (I used raspberry pie filling for this recipe, but I also LOVE cherry filling.)
Step Three: DUMP box cake mix on top.
Step Four: DUMP globs of butter on top!
Step Five: Bake cake on 350 degrees until bubbly and golden brown and delicious looking!
You can always add way more butter to get most of the cake covered to make more of a crust, but either way is fine. Once you try this cake, you will be addicted. No mixing or preparing for it. Just dump it all together and WAH-LA you have a masterpiece.
Do you all have something similar to this recipe? Do you have a favorite dish that you only make on special occasions? Try this cake out and let me know what you think about it! What was your favorite part?
Like always, love in Sigma Kappa!
