For a tasty treat that you can make in minutes, make this 4-Ingredient Chocolate Dump Cake recipe. This decadent dessert is a triple threat...of chocolate, that is. It uses chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding, chocolate chips, and milk. That's all it takes to enjoy a super chocolatey cake! Because the ingredients are so versatile and easy to work with, you can make your own tweaks to this recipe. You can use different flavors of cake mix or pudding, and you can even lighten this up with healthier ingredients. This is heaven on a plate.


Did You Know? The History of Dump Cakes

Dump cake recipes have become very popular in the past few years, despite their somewhat unappetizing name. However, it's not hard to understand why this easy dessert has become so beloved. Even if you find the name unappealing, it is hard to argue with a dessert that only requires you to dump the ingredients directly into a baking dish. 

It is often thought that dump cakes were first invented around the same time that cake mixes became popular. It is believed the first recipe for dump cake as we know it today was published in a baking brochure by Duncan Hines in 1980. The original recipe, much like many today, included canned cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple, boxed yellow cake mix, butter, and chopped nuts. These days, dump cake recipes can be made with any number of ingredients, including fresh fruit, frozen fruit, white cake mix, yellow cake mix, or chocolate cake mix. The possibilities are endless when it comes to this popular dessert casserole recipe.
