5 Ingredient Dump Cake

This cake is so EASY and delish, I bet everyone you serve it to will be begging for the recipe!

I will admit I don't really have a passion for cooking. I don't really love baking either, but I would prefer it over cooking for sure.  With that being said I truly appreciate any recipe that is quick and easy and most importantly delicious. So, whether you love to cook and bake or are more like me and do it as a means to survive and keep your family alive, I have a recipe you are sure to LOVE!  I know baking doesn't really fall into the category of needing it to survive like cooking a meal does, but it feels nice to make something the kids probably won't complain about, if ya know what I mean. I also have a really big, sweet tooth, so I do get a little more pumped about desserts!

This recipe is great because it only requires 5 ingredients, and there's a good chance you might already have them in your pantry and fridge. If not, I would encourage you to add them to your grocery list because this one's a winner. 

I also really love this recipe because its's FAST! If you find out last minute that you will be having company this recipe will be your best friend.

5 Ingredient Dump Cake


1 box of chocolate cake mix (any kind of chocolate will do)

1 box (3.9 oz.) instant chocolate pudding (just the dry pudding mix)

1 stick (1/2 cup) of melted butter

2 1/2 cups milk (whole milk is best)

1 bag (2 cups) of chocolate chips


Grease a 13x9" pan

Add the box of dry cake mix, then top with the box of dry pudding. 

Combine the butter and milk and pour over the cake and pudding mixes.

Slightly whisk it all together, then top with chocolate chips.

Bake in the oven at 350° for 35-40 minutes.

Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. I also added some Hershey's syrup over the top and it was so good!

So next time you're in a pinch to make a last-minute desert or are just craving some chocolatey goodness, remember this winner!

 I used this pan below for the dump cake. I love that it's super durable, chip resistant, freezable, microwavable and oven safe. You can also get the lids to go along with the pans which is great for storing leftovers. (Click the picture to shop).

Thanks for reading! Happy baking my friends!
