FAQ

Can I use cherry Jell-O instead of black cherry?

Absolutely. Black cherry flavor tends to be a bit sweeter than cherry and makes a great counterpoint to rhubarb but since Jell-O is sweetened anyhow, it would still work.

Should dump cake be served hot or cold?

I love it fresh from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream but honestly, it’s delicious at any temperature. (You can also warm it later in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.)

How to serve rhubarb and black cherry dump cake

Nothing beats a scoop of vanilla ice cream but a dollop of whipped topping ain’t bad either!

How should I store black cherry dump cake?

When completely cool, cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
