Fresh Strawberry Dump Cake

When I bought groceries Friday I bought some strawberries… not because I had any clue what I was going to do with them but because they just looked and smelled so good.  I suppose I could have just cut them and we could have had them like that maybe with some ice cream but we have our nephew up this weekend for a visit so I thought I would actually bake something with them.



Now, I only had a Rainbow Bits cake mix in the cupboard because we don’t generally make cake mixes but what is a few sprinkles in a dump cake lol?

Here is what I used.


I hulled and cut the strawberries and put them in the bottom of my greased pan then squeezed the juice from half the lemon onto the strawberries and mixed it up.


I sprinkled the brown sugar to cover the strawberries.


Next I poured the entire box of cake mix over top of the strawberries and smoothed it with a spoon.


Now I put the dabs/tablespoons of butter evenly across the top of the cake mix.


I baked it at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, when it was nice and browned and the strawberry base was bubbling.
