I seem to be on a roll this week with new recipes. Today is a "DUMP CAKE" I saw this over at Lib's blog and thought it looked good. By the way it took me forever to think of where I saw this recipe at first......I swear I am losing my memory!
This recipe is so simple a child could make it, or even my dh who cannot cook at all!!
So here are the ingredients:
A boxed cake mix
Canned fruit or pie filling
1/2 pound or 2 sticks butter
Pop fruit including liquid from the can in the bottom of a 9" x 13" cake pan. I only had a can of pineapple tidbits and I added some strawberries I had in the freezer. I saw this made with a large can of peaches and it looked yummy.
Then dump the cake mix on top of the fruit.
Slice the butter into small pats (like in the photo) and place on top of the mixture. Now some of the recipes call for melting the butter and putting it on top, others say do it like I did it? Also some call for 1/4 pound of butter (1 stick) others say 1/2 pound butter (2 sticks). I put in between that amount as it looked like an awful lot of butter too me.
I have to say it was awfully sweet, but good. It's supposed to feed 10 to 12 people......I would say it's more like 8 portions. This recipe is a keeper, would be great for a dinner party dessert as it could be cooking while you eat your main course. Also it takes seconds to put together. Great with icecream, cream; and we had it with Carnation Milk.

I know I have mentioned this before, but wanted to let you know how I am getting on. At the bottom of this page is an Icon for SwagBucks. That is a site where you can get "stuff" for free. All you basically have to do, is install the SwagBucks toolbar, and instead of using Google for searches use the Swagbucks search engine. There are other way's to get swagbucks and they have codes which come out for swagbucks.
I joined at the end of November and as I am writing this on Tuesday evening, I am 1 swagbuck away from cashing in for another $5 Amazon dot ca e-card. This will make $25 worth of e-cards I have "earned" since November. Its a super simple way of getting free gift cards. It takes me minutes each day to get these swagbucks, and as I am already on the internet, it's simple to do.
Swagbucks is available for people in the States, Canada and the UK. If you do decide to sign up, I would appreciate it if you would sign up under me, here is my link
This came on the radio when I was listening to it........blast from the past: The Bay City Rollers.
Did you remember to pop your money into your Daily Saving's Pot today?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Talk to your loved ones about what your dreams are. This seems like an odd way to save money, but think about it. If you spend time with the people you love the most and come to some consensus about your dreams, it becomes easy for you all to plan for it. If you’re all planning and working together towards this dream, it becomes easier to stay focused on it and reach it. Set a big, audacious goal together and encourage each other to be financially fit – soon, you’ll find you’re doing it naturally and your dreams are coming closer than ever.
You know this makes sense when you think about it. If you both want the same things, it's so easy.
