Fruitcakes tend to get a lot of flak around the holidays (largely because the store-bought kind are less than stellar), but the truth is they can be quite delectable. Take, for instance, the dump cake, which is just a mix of cake batter and your choice of fruit filling.
The treat is aptly named, as you essentially just dump your ingredients into a baking tray before it goes into the oven. If all this talk about fruitcake has piqued your interest and your sweet tooth aching, then you ought to try whipping up a dump cake at home.
