Recipe Tips

  • Do not make the cake mixture as we will need it dry for the best results. You can ignore any instructions on the back of the cake packet.
  • Spread the cake mixture out evenly for the best results. Large clumps of cake mixture might not cook properly.
  • If you cannot get your hands on the yellow cake mix, then most other cake mixes will work fine. For example, a vanilla cake mixture is an excellent alternative.
  • Use a slow cooker for cooking this dump cake if you want it cooked low and slow.
