I’ve seen that women on TV that does the dump cake commercials, she makes it look so easy. So I thought I’d try one of her recipes, made some changes and variations and baked in our Dutch Oven. Was excellent, perfect way to use up some of the frozen apples from mom and dad’s trees. And thank you dump cake lady-Cathy Mitchell!
