Pies baked inside cakes need help!
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
I recently saw a Food TV episode on this very same thing. It's becoming a fad and should catch on nationwide. That's my prediction. Anyway, if you go to Yahoo or Google and type in "cherpumple", you will get a bunch of links to sites that deal with this very same dessert. There are photos and recipes there which should help. You can also type in "pie baked inside cake" and come up with links as well.
I'm guessing your temp is too high if the top is over browning. The recipes I looked at said 350 degrees, but they were using cake pans, not spring form pans. Good luck!!
I'm not sure i get it - doesn't the crust get soggy getting cooked inside a cake? How can it be good? Or is it just for show, like four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie?
I did google what ever the name was.
Seemed to be one guy. Got some press. All storebought. Huge, a mess, sloppy. One look at the guy explained
it. Not an invention, we've had Dump Cake down here for 100+ yrs.
You seem to be doing something different. 3+4" deep pan sounds much better.
Have you tried lowering the temp and baking longer?
Springforms are traditionally a thin guage metal. I'm thinking you may have to track down a heavy gauge pan. Chicago metalic, maybe.
That will absolutely help with your centers done. Y ou may also want to loosly cover 3/4 way through.
Are you floating the pie? Are you prebaking ? Blind baking the crusts?
Good luck, seems like you have something going

I found instructions for making it - sort of. The directions call for cake mixes, but you can overcome that. The thing is, it says the cakes will be dry. They didn't seem to mind that, after all 'it's still cake'. Whatever.
There was something funny, though - the title was 'Cherpumple: The Turducken of Desserts"
Anyway, here's the link~
Thank you very much for a great fun start to my day
Maybe next year I'll be making stumplemumple cakes for Easter.
Granny, do you have dump cakes out there?
Researching recipes here 30 yrs. ago, it was the first thing I came across.
Rectangle pan, optional to line the bottom with pie dough or not. Dump in fruit filling,
Dump in yellow cake mix, dot with butter and bake. It;s a staple recipe here.
sounds the same, but not dry.

Panini, sure we have dump cakes here! In fact, that was the first thing my kids learned to bake (homemade bread was second).
We also have stack cakes, jam cakes, pudding cakes, stacked pies (not sure what those are called, but they're several pies, stacked on top of one another, like a layer cake), cake pies, brownie pies, and all sorts of other wonderments.
