A dump cake recipe is exactly what it sounds like--you simply dump all of the ingredients into a pan and bake. There isn't a step where you stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture; instead, it goes into the baking pan in three stages and the result is a pudding-like cake with a streusel-like topping. The two parts together are delicious (and you'd be hard-pressed to find an easier fall dessert)! Source: EatingWell.com, September 2019

It was certainly easy and the taste was really good, but I was expecting it to be a little taller (it felt very "flat"). We preferred it the next day, after storing it in the refrigerator as the pumpkin part had firmed up and texture was better. Read More
