I have been making the molten chocolate lava cake in the microwave in the DCB since it came out! And although most of my hosts still want it at their shows, I would love to be able to offer something different to those hosts who have had it many times. I also always bring the cake mix and chocolate frosting as a thank you to the host, but do ask them to supply vegetable oil and eggs as they are hard to transport. Does anyone have anything different they use that's super quick and easy and cheap like the molten chocolate lava cake?

The lemon-cherry crumble in the new Season's Best is good, but definitely more involved than the molten lava cake.

Yeah, that one looks super yummy, too, but looking for something as easy and cheap as the molten lava cake. Maybe I'll just have to switch up the flavors.

I was thinking of that one. Something fruity too besides another chocolate recipe.

well the Pineapple was so easy I did 1 cup of brown sugar 1 can of tidbits and used a jiffy yellow cake mix added the 1 egg and the pineapple juice mixed the cake mixture in a separate bowl and I did this while our other recipe was cooking I had the butter melted already and the cake mix and egg in the bowl so it took seconds to mix and show me putting it in the microwave they loved it! and one of my team mates mentioned today a lot of folks give up chocolate for lent so the fruit is a great wow and switch

I love Moms apple crisp..the one with the 8 graham crackers, quick oats...etc.
I only ask my host to have the 5 apples and coolwhip or ice cream and the flour and brown sugar..I bring the quick oats and crackers..and even sometimes the brown sugar and flour already prepped up in my bowls...they love this recipe and super easy and quick

I dump 2 cans of sugar free pie filling in the DCB then sprinkle a dry cake mix on top of it then melt 1 stick of butter and pour on that. Put lid on and microwave for 14 mins and serve :)

Yellow cake mix with apple pie filling
Chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling

Have you tried cutting the recipe and making it in the RCB yet?

How long does it go in the microwave? Lid on or off? And when you say the "pineapple juice" are you talking about the juice from the tidbits? Thanks for the advice!!

Pam I have a similar recipe but it says to dump in the cake mix, the pie filling, one can on top of the cake mix, then add 1 stick butter cut up. Microwave for 13 minutes and stir it all up then bake again for another 2 minutes. After stirring it up you would put sweet sprinkles on top but now that we do not sell those... I was thinking a quick struessel topping would work. 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cups oats, 1/8 cup sugar and 1/2 stick softened butter all crumbled together and put on top. I like yellow or white cake mix with peach, strawberry, lemon or blueberry pie filling. Chocolate with cherries, now get this, chocolate with orange marmalade even.

it depends on the microwave I did in mine a 1200 watt and it was 6 minutes the juice was from the pineapple but the host had a very old microwave and it took a bit longer not sure I think I did 5 2 and 2 more but this microwave could have been deemed an antique Hope that helps

The fun part about a dump cake is the limitations of your own mind! If you know what kind of pie fillings are available in your grocery store or even jams, (use the same amount of jam as the typical size pie filling can measures), you can do almost anything! I heard of one with yellow cake, and a combination of almond paste and apricot jam to make I think it was 16 ounces or two cups, and then the butter. Simply take 8 ounces of almond paste and 8 ounces of apricot jam and mix it up to make a it mushy so the almond paste distributes evenly through out the cake when stirred at the 10 minute mark.
Here it is:
1 Cake mix - if using yellow make sure it is not a butter recipe
1 can pie filling - anything that sounds like it will go with the cake mix
1 1/2 sticks of butter - I thought I had that wrong

Distribute cake mix evenly over bottom of DCB. Open pie filling with the Smooth Edge Can Opener and spread evenly over cake mix. Slice butter with Egg Slicer Plus and place over filling. Cover and microwave on high 10 minutes. Stir it all together and cook uncovered for 3 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes and serve with ice cream or whipped topping.

Again, the limitations are your own imagination.
If you are using something other than pie filling, keep in mind that this particular part is the liquid needed to activate the cake mix along with the butter so it must be a moist layer. You may need to add some water to loosen.
Yellow or white with 8 ounce almond paste and 8 ounces apricot preserves well mixed together, top with slice almonds after mixing and before the last three minutes so they toast.
Chocolate with 15 or 16 ounces orange marmalade or raspberry jam/pie filling or strawberry jam/pie filling
Chocolate with cherry pie filling
I love yellow or white with peach pie filling and chopped pecans added after the mix to top it off. OOps I forgot - instead of the butter, use 8 ounces of cream cheese mixed with 1/4 cup powdered sugar and it gives the cake a denser feel almost like pound cake but it takes on the flavor of cheese cake - Peaches and Cream Cake

I made a white cake in the round baker for a show on Saturday. I topped it with strawberries and strawberry glaze and cool whip piped on with accent decorator. Pretty and tasty!!! Big hit with all my guests!

The DCB recipe I use is 1 chocolate cake mix (take your pick of flavors) and ingredients to make it. I dump them all in and whisk while we go around for introductions. Distribute 1 container chocolate frosting using medium scoop over top of mixed cake mix. Microwave uncovered for 12 minutes. Done! Serve warm.

Often I'll add a cup of creamy peanut butter using the small scoop at the end for Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake.

So simple, yet so well received!
