It was so nice to start our week with a day off! Yesterday, the boys were out of school so we were able to sleep a little late and with some teamwork, got a few things done around the house. Of course, at the end of it all, there needed to be a little reward which I decided would come in the form of dessert. Dump Cakes have been around a long time and no wonder! They are quick, easy and you can substitute ingredients based on what your family likes. I had pumpkin puree and a box spice cake mix on hand which made a perfect match for my dish. This cake is moist, rich and full of warm spice flavor. Once out of the oven, I let it cool for about 10 minutes then served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was the perfect ending to a successful day.
