Just as looks can be deceiving, so can names. There are many delicious dishes out there in the world which have strange, confusing, even off-putting titles. However, no matter what you call it, a cake is a cake!

This recipe is what’s called a pumpkin dump cake but don’t let the name fool you, it tastes absolutely scrumptious. Think of it as more of a cobbler type of dessert because you make it by basically dumping the ingredients into a pan before baking it. That’s what makes dump cakes so simple and easy to whip up from scratch. Plus, once it finishes cooking in the oven and cools off a bit you can turn the pan over, dump it out, and voilà- it’s ready for devouring.
