I had never heard of a “dump cake” until a bunch of them showed up in my feed on Pinterest and thought I’d give one a try. Such an easy dessert to whip together at the last minute for your family (I halved the recipe below) or to bring to a family gathering or potluck. It seems there are SO many versions of these dump cakes. The one that I chose and adapted is very simple.
Apple Dump Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
2 cans of apple pie filling
1/2 cup butter
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with no stick spray. Put the apple pie filling in the dish and spread evenly.
Mix the dry cake mix with the 1/2 cup melted butter and crumble over the apples. Try to break up the chunks so it mostly covers the apples.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Because this is very sweet, I think it is served best with ice cream (I love vanilla bean) or homemade whipped cream.
