‘Dump Cake’

Don’t let the name fool you: “Dump Cake” is a “winner.”

That’s according to home cook Larrie Waterman of Colville, who submitted the recipe, which was given to him by his best friend, Loretta Redmer.

“We had a spirited friendly unannounced rivalry about desserts,” Waterman wrote in an email to the Food section. “We ate dinner and dessert, and then played cards usually every Friday night. When she made this cake it was a winner, hands down.”
