Apple Dump Cake – 3 Ingredients and Ready to Eat

 

I love to provide fresh baked desserts for my family.  The weekends are the perfect opportunity for me to do so.  It really doesn’t take a huge amount of energy to make it happen.  Don’t get me wrong – sometimes I make very elaborate dinners and desserts but other times – I just want to give them some comfort food without spending hours in the kitchen.  Today was one of those days.

 

We all have days that are difficult – yesterday was a difficult day for me.  One of my most difficult.  Just getting out of bed today was a real challenge – staying out of bed was even more of a challenge.  But somehow cooking for my family always seems to help.

 

This recipe is easily created with the help of ingredients I always have on hand in the house.  A box of cake mix – we always have plenty of those around because cake mix is incredibly versatile.  For this we used yellow cake mix but you can use any flavor for nearly endless variations.  Then I need a stick of butter and a can of fruit filling – for this one I used apple.   Sometimes I use two cans but today I used one.

 

 

The process is simple – you can either use a crockpot or bake in the oven.  I chose a large square pyrex dish for this dessert.  The first step is to spread the fruit filling along the bottom of the pan…

 

 

Then spread the cake mix – straight from the box – over all of the filling.

 

 

Cut the stick of butter into squares and lay across the top of the cake mix.

 

 

When baking in the oven – 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.  If using a crockpot – bake on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.

 

 

Let it cool and serve as is, with whip cream, or even with ice cream.
