Dump-It Cake

Here’s an upgraded version of the classic dump-it cake, which is typically made with canned pie filling, a box of cake mix, and melted butter. The fruit filling bubbles at the bottom of the pan while the melted butter mixes with the dry ingredients on top to create a fluffy cake-like layer. This cake is made from scratch, but is still as easy as dumping in all of the ingredients in layers and baking to perfection.
