Use a Potato Peeler for Shaved Butter {Dump Cake Recipe}

When we make Dump Cake, the entire top of the cake needs to be covered with one stick of butter.

I used to spend a fair amount of time meticulously cutting thin slices of butter to place on top.

  1. That’s a good tip!

    Did you know that if you need to cut butter into a recipe with a pastry blender, a good substitute is to grate frozen butter on a cheese grater? It comes out in pea size pieces and just needs to be stirred in.
