This Memorial Day weekend, my sister and I had some friends over for lunch: Mexican stack and sweet tea 🙂
And dessert? Well, it’s summer…so I was definitely craving dump cake.
And, just in time for this month’s Gluten Free Ratio Rally challenge: fruit cobblers. According to this article, there are lots of different kinds of cobblers…the dump cake is just one variation.I ended up using 3 parts flour, and had to add another stick of butter so that it wasn’t just a mound of flour on top of the fruit…so the “cobbler” part ended up being a cookie ratio (3 parts flour: 2 parts fat: 1 part sugar)…no wonder it was so yummy! 😉 Next time I’m going to go with 2 parts (8oz) flour blend, so I can use less butter (4oz), and be able to taste more of the fruit. I’m not complaining, though! I actually like the dump cake better cold from the fridge the next day. My sister likes it with ice cream.
