What took me so long to put this lemon dump cake up?? 

I have been making this for so many years. I can’t even remember how many years it’s been. 

What I do remember is buying my first can of  lemon pie filling in my grocery store because it was on sale, bringing it home, putting it in my pantry and forgetting about it for a few months.

Those few months later I grabbed that can and knew I wanted to finally make something with the lemon filling. What though?

I grabbed a few more pantry ingredients along with a few from the fridge and started thinking of what to make and this came to mind. 

Recently, over the past few years I changed around the recipe to make it even easier and with less ingredients.

That’s when I decided it must be called a lemon lush dump cake. It’s incredibly simple and easy to make and it is kind of like a dump, stir, pour, and bake. 

This cake is so moist and luscious. Everyone who has had this cake loves it and almost everyone asks me for the recipe.
