The newest Fix-It and Forget-It cookbook, Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Dump Dinners and Desserts, brings you lots of dinners and desserts that once they’re “dumped” into your slow cooker, all you have to do is serve it and enjoy it! So, if you’re looking for recipes with very little “fuss,” this cookbook is for you.
Today, I’m sharing one of the dump desserts from the book with you! It’s called Blackberry Dump Cake. It’s so easy you’ll wonder if you’re missing something…but you’re not! Not everything you put in your slow cooker has to be complicated and this one takes the cake! Get it…takes the CAKE! Hahahaha! Sorry, bad joke. In all seriousness though, dump cakes are one of my favorite things to make for dessert in the slow cooker. They’re always tasty and even if I’m super short on time, I can always afford the few minutes it takes to dump a few ingredients into my slow cooker and walk away.
Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Dump Dinners and Desserts can be purchased just about anywhere books are sold, or on amazon (which I usually find to be the least expensive) by clicking here. This is a great book to gift to those you love and to have for yourself too!
