What to Do with a Rainy Morning

This morning it was quite dreary and rainy outside. Looking at the forecast it looked like rain was in our future until late this afternoon. So the question became, what to do on this rainy grey day? Luckily Mr. Yesteryear Acres came to the rescue! He gave me the task of making a dump cake! We have lots of fresh fruit from the farmers market in danger of going bad, so basically mother nature rained this morning so that I could give the fresh fruit goodness a new purpose. Dump Cake!! I mean who doesn't love dump cake!?! So I set to work right away. I boiled some water and blanched the peaches. Then I peeled them and diced the peaches into perfect bite-size morsels. Next I washed all the blueberries and mixed them with the peaches, I needed to make sure the ratios were just so!
Next I washed and removed the cherry pits, and tossed them into the mixture
I don't know about you, but this screams summertime happiness to me!
Then I added some ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a little brown sugar and placed the fruit into a baking dish
I then topped my summer fruits with a butter yellow cake mix and some more brown sugar
Finally for a little extra flair I dotted the pan with butter, because you can't go wrong by adding butter!
350* and 45 minutes later....
Everyone here at Yesteryear Acres is already ready for dessert!!!
Hurry Up Dinner, and a BIG Thank You to Mother Nature!
