      Rhubarb dump cake is literally the easiest dessert ever! You dump the ingredients into a baking dish, one a time and then bake it to create the most scrumptious dessert.

      You’ll Need:
      5 c. diced rhubarb (cut into 1/2-inch pieces)

      1-(3 oz.) box of either raspberry gelatin, or strawberry
      1-(18.5 oz.) box yellow (pudding in the mix) cake mix
      1/2 c.butter, melted
      1 c. water
      Cool Whip, whipped creamstrawberry rhubarb dessert budget101, or Vanilla ice cream


      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of an un-greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan with the rhubarb. Sprinkle sugar over the rhubarb.
      2. Sprinkle raspberry (or strawberry) gelatin over the sugar.
      3. Next, sprinkle cake mix over the gelatin.
      4. Pour the melted butter over the cake mix.
      5. Pour the water over the cake mix. Note: If using frozen rhubarb, reduce the amount of water to 1/2 cup.
      6. Do not mix or stir.
      7. Bake 45 minutes.

      Serve slightly warm w/ vanilla ice cream.

      This dessert was one of my favorites growing up because we often didn’t have the money to go pick/buy strawberries but we still got to enjoy all the flavor. It’s scrumptious.

      This one was one of our favorites when we lived in Maine, getting fresh rhubarb in the South isn’t as easy as it was up North, haha. This is extremely good with strawberry jello, although I’m sure the raspberry is delicious as well. For a Slight change of pace you can substitute 1/2 c. honey for the sugar or omit the sugar all together since it has the jello in it.
