Dump cakes are awesome… usually a few ingredients tossed stirred together and baked. So easy… except one of those ingredients usually tends to be a whole lot of butter! I personally try to stay away from recipes that consist of pounds of butter (except for holiday baking!).
I played around with a few different ingredients to see if I could come up with a yummy and simple dump cake that didn’t have all that fat in it. The results were awesome… and allowed for a little bit of a bigger scoop of ice cream! The second day we drizzled it with a bit of caramel sauce… let me tell you, that was a GOOD idea!
This cake is SO moist that it won’t last longer than a couple of days on the counter. If it’s going to be longer than that, you may like to freeze some of it or store it in the fridge.
