This is the cake you always want to have the ingredients on hand because you never know when the neighbors will drop by. It's moist, sugary, cake-like and a bit cobbler-like, too. It's called dump cake because you literally dump all the ingredients in a bowl, mix then bake. What emerges from the oven will impress your friends and family, and pretty much guarantee they will always be stopping by in the hopes of getting more of this cake. I highly recommend you dump a whole lot of ice cream or whip cream on top.
- 1 stick butter (this is the perfect time to use high fat European butter, Kerrygold and Plugra are my favorites)
- 1-1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup self-rising flour (don’t have self-rising? No problem! Add 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt to all-purpose flour, mix and VOILA you now have self-rising flour!)
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups blackberries (fresh or frozen), rinsed and pat dry (if fresh)
