No, I can't claim credit for this. I was checking out some new blogs yesterday, and came upon Shawn. Her site, Swaneesinger, is an eclectic collection of observations, memories and ~ you guessed it ~ recipes.
I'm snagging this one for you, Dear Readers, because I know you especially like those Retro Recipes. This one comes from a special cookbook, entitled 101 Things to Do with a Cake Mix, by Stephanie Ashcraft. Puts me in mind of my Nana and her creations.
This recipe, of course, is adaptable. Please give it a whirl, and let me know what you think. We'll be baking it in Aunt Julie's Kitchen, for sure!
1 White or Yellow Cake Mix
1 Can (29 oz.) sliced peaches with juice
1/2 stick of butter or margarine, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan. Spread half of the cake mix evenly in bottom of pan. Pour can of sliced peaches and juice evenly over the cake mix (Shawn also sometimes uses a bit of cinnamon). Cover the peaches with the rest of the cake mix, then slice the margarine or butter on top. Bake 50 minutes, or until golden brown. Top the Dump Cake with either whipping cream or ice cream.
Shawn says she's also used different kinds of pie filling as the central ingredient in Dump Cake, and has even made this recipe as cupcakes. Thanks to Shawn for putting this out there for all of us to share. Hope you enjoy it!
