Oh my word! The other day I finally decided to whip up a dark chocolate and almond dump cake. It had been a good long while since we have had any cake in the house & by golly, it was time!
I added a few extra toppings to what was calling me at the time & wham…. here we have Dark Chocolate and Almond Dump Cake. It was then I realized that I had never shared this recipe with you. If you have never made a dump cake before then you are in for a treat.
I mean just 3 simple ingredients & whatever toppings & mix in’s you choose & you are rockin’ & rollin’. After just a few bites I decided that I was really liking the sheer ease in which this cake came together & I knew I had to snap a few pics to share here.
I was happily satisfied with how I was able to knock out my chocolate cake craving too. So it’s my mission this summer to scale things back, break down recipes & simplify things.
I plan on giving you the easiest & most simple versions of my favorite summer recipes – from here until labor day!! Are you ready??!
