Some of my earliest food-centric memories are of church potlucks (or “pitch-ins” as they were called in Indiana).
Church potlucks are a Mecca for anyone who loves comfort food and lots of it.
I remember waiting anxiously during the sermon, knowing what delicious foods were waiting in the next room. After service the congregation would file into the dining hall, where a group of hard-working ladies had spent the last half-hour lining hams, barbecue, and every kind of casserole, salad, and dessert imaginable along banquet tables. Congregants would descend like the locusts upon Egypt, leaving nary a crumb in sight.
Make this dump cake and you’ll be well on your way to church potluck recipe fame.
