The name is half the problem. This infomercial is advertising a cookbook for Dump Cake recipes. The idea is that measuring and mixing have become far too burdensome, so we should take premade fillings, cake mixes and pop and DUMP them in a dish and bake.
This is not cooking. You are just pouring one pre-made food on top of another pre-made food. It's like dumping Velveeta cheese on top of Doritos and Funions and calling it a casserole. So when she says it makes preparing homemade desserts really easy, the only thing homemade about it is that you did indeed DUMP all these NOT homemade foods into a dish at HOME.
I think the part that killed me was that using diet pop instead of regular pop made it a 'guilt free' treat.
Yep! That aspartame definitely dissolved away all the sugar still in the cake mix and pie filling. :-S
Sadly I don't think this cookbook will be making it into my cupboard.
