Salted Caramel- Chocolate Dump Cake. The answer is always "yes" to caramel and chocolate. This cake is beyond easy. Throw all the ingredients into a 13x9, and voila! You've got a dessert that will make you melt. This recipe is a perfect dessert idea for a quick weeknight indulgence.
A couple of years ago, my mother taught me to make her dense but moist chocolate birthday cake. She calls it 'dump-it cake' because you mix all of the ingredients in a pot over medium heat, then dump the batter into a cake pan to bake. For the icing, you melt Nestlé's semisweet-chocolate chips and swirl them together with sour cream. It sounds as if it's straight from the Pillsbury Bake-Off, but it tastes as if it's straight from Payard. (Photo: Danny Ghitis for The New York Times)
