I love recipes that are easy. Better yet, I love fall recipes that are easy to make. With four boys my life revolves around quick, simple, easy, messy….well you get the point. Also, I am not one to reinvent the wheel so I don’t feel it to be in the best use of my time to pick out several recipes from several books then take those and create a recipe book. To me that is reinventing the wheel. I bought the recipe book because I liked what it had in it. Plus I’m not sure how that is saving time, but some may like the idea.
One of my favorite books is by Mary Ostyn “Family Feasts for $75.00 A Week”. I use this book ALL of the time. It really saves money because it gives great, delicious recipes, sauces, canning, and christmas morning breakfast at an affordable price.
This book also gives great shopping tips and advice in the first chapter. Anyway, this is my go to recipe book. No mix dump cake is one of the desserts that we make quite often. I especially like to serve it when having company because it really takes only 30 minutes to make.
No-Mix Dump Cake
(this recipe makes one 9×12 pan.)
2 quarts canned peaches in juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup of cold butter. (cut into parts)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Drain the juice from 1 quart of fruit; set aside juice for a different purpose, such as mixing it with tomorrow’s breakfast orange juice. Pour remaining fruit with juice plus drained fruit into a 9×13 pan.
- In a medium size bowl, combine flour, sugars, baking powder and baking soda. Sprinkle mixture evenly over fruit. Arrange buter pats evenly over the top.
- Bake until cake is browned, with crispy bits and little bubbles of juice filling popping up through the crust here and there, about 30 minutes. Spoon into bowls while still warm, and serve, with ice cream, if you like.
The directions are so easy! Trust me this dessert is delicious….I ate more than my share:)
