Dump Cake IMPORTANT Tip: Paper towel is the key to these types of recipes to catch the condensation on the lid.

There is a picture below showing how to set this up! 

Place two layers of paper towel on top of the slow cooker crock, and place the lid on the crock.

Set the slow cooker to high for 3 hours.

Check halfway through to make sure the paper towel is still dry.

If not, remove the wet towel, and replace with a fresh layer of paper towel.

This prevents condensation from pouring back down into your cake.

  1. This was WONDERFUL! My Daughter’s boyfriend — who thinks I’m not a good cook (he’s probably right, lol) but who most definitely thinks I’m not as good a cook as his Mother (I wouldn’t know; have never been invited to sample hers) — had 2 helpings after Dinner and asked if there was any left later that same night when the 2 of them were watching TV!

  2. Does the cake mix have to be made with the directions on the cake mix box or just poured directly in with the butter and vanilla?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      You do not follow the instructions on the box, it just goes with the butter and vanilla.

  3. I would like to make this for about 20-24 people gir tge 4th if July. Is there a way to make extra topping separately

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      I dont know any way off hand to make this with extra topping separately. You can always experiment on the stove of course!
