We had the sirens going off at 4:30 a.m. this morning and since then the rain has just kept on, keeping on. It's looking like I won't be making the market, unless it clears up soon.
Regardless, I did make a dessert yesterday that I haven't made in a long time. An old co-worker (Hi, Bridget!) gave me this recipe, and it is so easy. It's called a dump cake, because that is what you do "dump" everything into the pan.
You don't even stir it!
It's been a challenge keeping it away from the husband, so let's all say a silent prayer I make it to the market, otherwise he'll feel like he needs to eat it.
Strawberry Rhubarb Dump Cake
4-5 c. chopped rhubarb
1 c. sugar
1 pkg. strawberry jello
1 box yellow cake mix
1 1/4 c. water
1/2 c. melted butter
Spray 9x13 pan (or two 8x8 pans, like I did) and layer ingredients in order they are listed. Do not mix! Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Your house will smell like strawberry shortcake. I'm imagining whipped cream or ice cream accompanying this dish! As always...everything in moderation, one small bite of this will NOT put you over the edge.
It will just make you feel better.
What is your go to dessert?
