I've professed my love of dump cakes on the blog before. They are just so stinking easy and delicious. You literally dump everything in a pan and bake. Plus, the options and variations are endless. If you need an easy go-to recipe, these are a must!
The one I'm sharing today is perfect for fall and winter. I can see this being a great (and easy) Thanksgiving dessert. It's rich, hearty, and absolutely perfect when served with a little bit of vanilla ice cream on the side. Hope y'all enjoy!
Pecan Pie Dump Cake
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup dark corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 cups pecans
1 box yellow cake mix
1 1/2 cups melted butter
In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, salt, and cinnamon with a fork. Add in corn syrup, vanilla extract, eggs, and 1/2 cup melted and cooled butter. Mix well. Fold in 1 cup of pecans until well-incorporated.
Pour mixture into a greased 9x13" pan. Over the top of the mixture, evenly spread cake mix. Top with remaining pecans (1 cup) evenly. Pour 1 1/2 cups butter over the top of the dish, until most of the cake mix is moistened.
Bake dump cake in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes, until edges of the top are just starting to brown. Serve warm with ice cream.
