The holidays are in full swing and parties are starting to fill our calendars! We have had such nice weather, here in Utah, that it didn’t feel like the holidays to me. It all sunk in when I put up my Christmas decorations last week.
This year, I’m all about delicious but super easy recipes. It’s so funny because there are some years that all I want to do is super elaborate dishes but I seem to be over that this year! This mouthwatering pumpkin dump cake will make you do your dance!
You have heard of dump cake before. It was a recipe that became popular in the ’80s by church cookbooks and potlucks. Basically, you dump in a few cans of fruit in a pan and cover it with cake mix and butter and bake it. This is the same idea, only the star of the dish is the pumpkin.
The best thing about making this recipe is that it will take you only minutes to make and then you have enough time to clean up your house before your guests arrive and they will love you for choosing this recipe!
