Pampered Chef: Super fast dessert in DCB

    So how are you guys liking the dump cakes in the DCB? Any luck? For my book club lunch today, I just thought I should have a dessert too. Thought I'd just do something super fast and easy in the DCB, but thought I'd see what you all are finding with this recipe.

    That training call w/ Michael Reeves, the woman's (can't remember her name, who shared the dump cake recipe) recipe was this:

    1 yellow cake mix (not the butter recipe kind)
    Peach pie filling
    1 1/2 sticks of butter (in pats)
    Lid on, cook 10 minutes
    Then Stir and add caramel sprinkles on top (optional) and cook another 3 minutes.

    Serve in DCB, serve w/ ice cream

    So, anyone? Other flavor varieties? I have apple pie filling, so was going to use that.

    Anyone know if there is a chocolate version?

    I haven't tried at, but I'm thinking that if you have apple pie filling, a spice cake mix would be good... And maybe sprinkle with Sweet Caramel or Cinnamon Sprinkles? Just a thought. I bet that if you used a chocolate cake mix that cherry pie filling would be good. OR maybe banana? I don't think that there is a banana pie filling to buy, but maybe banana pudding? I don't know... just a thought.

    I tried it and found it too sweet for my taste....the kids liked it, but big surprise! I had read another thread that mentioned chocolate cake and cherries.....

    I'm still hooked on pineapple upside down cake in the fluted pan, 10 minutes in micro.....but, well....I'm a broken record. He He

    I would think you could do cherry pie filling with a chocolate cake mix. Haven't tried it (really don't need a whole DCB filled with a desert around here!).

    I should try a Tupperware recipe that a consultant taught me years ago. It's to go in the large rectangular rock n serve. I think it would be good for the DCB.

    Black Forest Microwave Cake

    8 oz crushed pineapple
    21 oz cherry pie filling
    1 cup pecans
    1 stick melted butter
    Devil's Food Cake mix

    Drain pineapple, reserve liquid. Spread pineapple on bottom of DCB. Add pie filling. Spread gently. Sprinkle dry cake mix onto filling; top with chopped pecans.

    Combine melted butter and pineapple juice and pour on top. Microwave on high 12 min. Cool and serve w/ whipped topping.

  6. Where does the term "dump cake" come from :confused:
  7. babywings76

    It's because all the ingredients are dumped in, you don't mix things (prepare according to directions and so forth)

    I've always figured it was because you just dump everything in, and bake it.

    Dump a can of this, Dump a box of that....and then you have Dump Cake!:p

    I don't care for the micro cakes. But, I know lots of people who love them. They are pretty cheap to try so give it a whirl and see what you think :)

    i have tried a chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling and it came out pretty well. i also tried the original recipe from michael reeves with the peach filling and it was good. i think it tastes best served with a scoop of ice cream, and a great way to show off the ice cream scoop!

    Ain't THAT the truth!! I have a hard time trying recipes before demoing at a show- because then I'm stuck with all the food that I don't need! The brownies, etc are one thing- I can easily make up a plate and take it to the neighbors or the local Police/Fire depts (they love that), but cakes are harder- you can't hide the evidence of the taste-test.

    I personally don't think that one can of pie filling is enough, I like lots of fruit for more of a cobbler. With the peach pie filling, I add a can of light syrup sliced peaches. A clustermate of mine did a chocolate cake with a can of cherry pie filling and then found a bag of frozen cherries that she added to it. I have also heard that the apple with the spice cake is awesome.

    There's a thought, maybe I could go visit the Fire fighters with some brownies. :)

    At our last Team meeting we used Strawberry cake mix and scooped in the cream cheese frosting over the top, turned onto plate and your done. Add some fresh strawberries to dress it up.

    And yes, my husband and two sons would also die of laughter with dump cake! LOL

  17. This sounds like wonderful recipes but can someone please tell me what "DCB" stands for. I know I will kick myself for not knowing, once I am told.

    We've been loving the peach recipe and today I made the yellow cake with cherry pie filling and the caramel sprinkles and it's great too. I do like them all best with some whipped cream on top!

    I tried it ... thought it was way too sweet ... and it didn't get done. My microwave is only 800 watts and no turntable. And if I can't make it at home, that is just an example of what COULD happen at a host's home.
Have something to add?
