What is the difference between a cobbler and a dump cake?

They taste and look similar. However, a dump cake utilizes a cake mix. Whereas, a cobbler uses a flour mixture for the breading.

What does dump cake taste like?

Dump cake is similar to a cobbler in recipe style but has a cake topping. Due to this, it is really sweet and delicious.

The cake has a filling such as fruit, or chocolate. Then everything is topped with the cake mix and is baked to perfection.

Best Dump Cake Recipes

Whether you are looking for something fruity or something with chocolate or peanut butter, there is a recipe for everyone. The most difficult part is deciding which easy dessert to try first.

Traditionally, these recipes are baked but we even have a slow cooker version. These recipes make it so easy to enjoy dessert without many ingredients or time.

Does dump cake need to be refrigerated?

Yes, this type of dessert needs to be stored in the fridge. The filling will spoil if not chilled in the refrigerator after baking.

If your pan has a lid, you can use that to ensure freshness. Otherwise, use plastic wrap or aluminum foil to tightly cover the pan.

How long can you keep dump cake?

Stored in the refrigerator, dump cake will last up to 5 days. Although, ours never last that long. We eat it pretty quickly.

Tips and tricks:

  • Prepare pan. Use cooking spray to thoroughly coat the baking dish. If you are using a slow cooker, we recommend crockpot liners for easy cleanup.
  • Preheat the oven. I know it sounds obvious but it is important that you do not skip this step. The cake will not bake evenly if not properly preheated.
  • Try new variations. The possibilities are endless for dump cakes. Try new ingredients and combinations.
