Enjoying a Brisk Fall Evening With Caramel Apple Dump Cake

Caramel Apple Dump Cake


Don’t you just love Autumn?!  There is nothing better than nice warm apple desserts on a brisk evening.  But who has time to make an apple pie or an apple cake after work?  I know I don’t.


But have no fear – this “cake” only calls for three ingredients and it is totally awesome.  Be warned though – it is addicting and incredibly sweet.


All you need is a box of cake mix – I used Pillsbury Classic White Cake Mix.

A can of pie filling – any pie filling will work but my kids love Apples and for an added twist I used Apple Caramel Pie Filling.

And a stick of butter…




Open the box of cake mix and spread along the bottom of a pan.  Slice the butter up into thin squares and lay over the cake mix in the pan.  Open the can of pie filling and spread over the butter.  That is it – takes about 5 minutes to prep.  Then you can go help your children with homework, take care of the dogs, do some dishes, throw a load of laundry in and catch up on the news.  45 minutes later you will have a fully ready “dump cake”.


Its Done


Serve while warm with either a side of ice cream or a dollop of ice cream on top.  Just scoop it out of the pan and enjoy.  Be careful that pie filling is hot!
