Now that the weather is getting warmer and summer is right around the corner, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect dessert for pot lucks and pool parties. There’s one that I keep coming back to time and time again, though- you know the trusty recipe that never fails you? This is it for me! Behold, Key Lime Cobbler (or “dump cake”, if that name better describes how simple this recipe is- though it isn't the most appetizing title).
Like most dump cakes, there are only 3 ingredients called for in this recipe. Just be sure and keep that a secret from your taste-testers because if you don’t tell, they’d never guess. This cake is basically buttery deliciousness, served best with a big dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Or, if you’re feeling extra wild and crazy, both.
If you love key lime pie, you’ve gotta make this cobbler ASAP. It’s perfectly refreshing for spring and summer while satisfying any sweet tooth craving you might have. Any time I take it to a party, I leave with an empty baking dish. Which is always a win in my book so I won’t be eating the leftovers from the pan at midnight, standing in the kitchen in my pajamas hoping not to wake my boys. Not because I’d be embarrassed by any means, but because I don’t like to share. Not when it comes to a dessert this yummy, anyway.
1 box Betty Crocker Vanilla Cake Mix
2 cans Key Lime Pie Filling
1 stick Butter, melted (8 tbsp.)

5. Pour cake/butter mixture over pie filling in baking dish and spread out evenly.
6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until sides are hot and bubbly.
Serve warm with ice cream and enjoy!
I'm proud to say that t-ball season is finally over for us which means this mama can have a life again outside of practices and a mile long game schedule. Bear enjoyed the season but he was even ready for it to be over by the end- his last game was Tuesday evening and he was coming up with every excuse in the book not to go that day. "It looks like it's gonna rain Mommy, I think t-ball is cancelled". And my personal favorite, "I can't go to t-ball because you're sick, Mommy". I wasn't sick, but apparently I looked that way. I guess that's what two and a half months of non-stop baseball will do to a person.
We survived the final game and Tuesday night when we tucked Bear into bed, he said a prayer that I'll never forget. It started like this, "Dear God, thank you for making t-ball be over"...
Zach and I looked at each other and did our best not to laugh- probably because we both couldn't agree more with Bear's sentiment.
