The idea of dump cake was–and is–slightly horrifying to me. You dump 5 ingredients into a pan, don’t even stir (don’t even stir!), and pop it into the oven. Miraculously, the result isn’t explosive or vomit-inducing, and the cake doesn’t emit VOCs (I think).
One of the five ingredients is butter. Of course. Can you guess what the other four are?

Yes, it’s French. If you pronounce it right, you’ll probably sound offish. But I think tarte Tatin can be quite the rustic, humble dessert. It’s just like an upside-down apple pie, and–dressed up with a dollop of your favorite topping–it’s well on its way to impressing your favorite guests.
