I have been making dump cakes for years. I remember the day I was in a store and saw the book called Quick & Easy Dump Cakes and More. I had never even heard of a dump cake at that point. I was immediately fascinated. I could not put the cookbook down. I had to buy it and then went home and started baking. One of the very first dump cake I made was a Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake and it was love at first bite.
Once I got my first instant pot, I quickly decided I needed experiment and see if I could cook dump cakes in my instant pot. How incredible would that be?! Incredible is exactly what it is. Dump cakes were designed to be easy dump and go recipes. Making them in your instant is even easier!! You will load up all of your ingredients into your serving dish and cook within that pot, inside your instant pot. That is called pot in pot cooking. (PIP)
My first Instant Pot Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake came out so incredibly delicious and was so easy to make, I needed to continue on. This post consists of 3 of my very first Instant Pot Dump Cakes. There have been many more since, so please search above for instant pot dump cake to find lots more flavor combinations.
