Donut Dump Cake

This Donut Dump Cake is a great way to give stale donuts a new life or to amp up a regular donut.

A few weeks ago, I started a new job, and, right after I started, it was my boss’ birthday. I decided that being the newbie, I would bring donuts for everyone to have. However, I greatly overestimated the number I should bring. I was left with over a dozen uneaten glazed donuts and wasn’t going to be able to eat them before they went stale. They did in fact go stale, and I, being the stingy person I am, didn’t want my money to go to waste. So, my brain gears started churning again.

I had made dump cakes in the past and they were always really moist without having to do a bunch of work. I thought this would be a great way to use the donuts, so I got to cooking. I had a Krusteaz Cinnamon Swirl cake mix in the pantry, because they are the best, so we stay strapped with one on hand, and immediately knew this dump cake was going to be fire.

Sure enough, the donuts became squishy and moist again, plus with the added cake, this dessert was brilliant. Served warm with a scoop of ice cream, all your problems will fade away. This cake is delicious.
