Can I make this Dump Cake Ahead of Time?

Yes. You can absolutely make this dump cake ahead of time. Of, course the best time to eat this cake, in my opinion, is while it is still warm and fresh out of the oven. If you do want to make it in advance, store it loosely covered in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.

Storage: Cover and store this in the refrigerator for up to 5 days

Reheating: Let the cake come up to room temperature. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until heated through

What are Dump Cakes?

They are layers of fruit (usually a pie filling), then, cake mix, and finally melted butter which is baked and made into a moist cake. Some people would say that they are similar to a cobbler.

Do I Need to Refrigerate my Dump Cake?

You can certainly leave your dump cake out at room temperature for a couple of days. After that, cover loosely and refrigerate for a few more days.
