Although a nonstick pan would be ideal, there are no special pans needed to make Dump Cakes. Dump Cakes and the related Dump Dinners are cookbooks put out by TeleBrands Corp.
The cookbooks for both Dump Cakes and Dump Dinners purport to make meals and desserts simple to produce by just dumping a few ingredients in a pan and baking them until ready. Dump Cakes allow cooks to make desserts in two simple steps. An example for a simple cake is to dump some fresh or canned fruit in the bottom of a baking dish, top with boxed cake mix and pour in a liquid, such as cola. Even mixing is not necessary. The Dump Cakes cookbook features recipes for cakes, s'mores, sticky buns and more.
