“D” is for Dump Cake

Dump Cake

This is the second recipe celebrating Gavin learing the letter “D” this week in preschool.  I definitely prefer eating Dump Cake rather than Dirt Pie.

You have probably had this “cake” or something like it in the past.  It has four ingredients and, frankly, tastes just wonderful.  Plus it makes your house smell so good that you’ll be wishing there was a scented candle designed after it.  How do you think a candle named “Dump Cake” would sell? I’d buy it!
