sketch of Bob above the Apple Dump Cake recipe.

We had a neighbor call and request a apple dump cake recipe. Another listener called in with a dump cake we took on the show back in 1973 when Ask Your Neighbor was broadcast on WWJ. When Bob left WWJ they lost some of the recipes and our listener took very good notes! Thanks to that neighbor we have this "lost" apple dump cake to share with you today.

You can serve the apple cake with whipped cream or ice cream on the side (or...how about both?).
