Anyone sitting here, right now, thinking “I have nothing special planned for my family for Valentine’s! What am I going to do?!” Yes, I realize it is Valentine’s Day, and most of you have all these great plans for romantic dinners and so forth. But maybe, just maybe, there are some people out there like me who spent all their free time (non-sick free time that is! Thanks Mr. Three for that lovely cold you shared last weekend.) baking up cookies for preschool, and running around all over creation b/c the closest Wal-Mart and Target are 30 minutes away trying to get party supplies, and the Wal-Mart was completely sold out of everything except EASTER candy…oh wait, am I ranting? It kind of feels like I’m ranting….back to my point.
For whatever reason, some of us do not have a special dinner planned, or have a special dessert ready, OR maybe you have been invited somewhere at the last minute and you need a dessert NOW. One that is a crowd pleaser, but doesn’t require lots of prep or ingredients. I’m here to say, I’ve gotcha covered. Dump cakes to the rescue! If you are not from the South, you may be saying dump what?! ewwww. However, these simple cakes are a staple of every potluck I’ve ever been too. They are super simple to put together, and they are very yummy. You just “dump” ingredients together…hence the name.
Apple Spice Dump Cake (or Crunch Cake if you prefer)
So there you go. Desserts that are super easy, but sure to please. You are on your own with dinner, ‘cuz I’m clueless on that one right now myself!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Make yourself dessert and enjoy. What are your plans tonight? I’d love to hear them so I can be jealous 🙂
