Expert Tips for Making Chocolate Dump Cakes

  • Do Stir: Stirring or even slightly tilting your ingredients from side to side can result in a better, more evenly baked dump cake. We love this rubber spatula.
  • Fresh or Frozen: If you are going to add fruit to your chocolate dump cakes, fresh or frozen fruit usually yields fresher tasting results than canned fruit does.
  • Don’t overdo it: At times it can be tricky getting the right bake time and consistency for your dump cake. If you’re just starting out, definitely low ball the cooking time. If the cake is not done, or not to your liking, you can easily put it back in for a few more minutes until you reach chocolate dump cake perfection. We recommend this oven thermometer.
  • Toppings: Even if the recipe you use doesn’t call for it, don’t be afraid to add some extra chocolate. You can sprinkle on chocolate chips, fudge drizzle, or even your favorite sprinkles to make your dump cake your own. Also try fresh fruit or ice cream if you want to break up the solid chocolate flavor.
