Preparation, Ingredients and Materials Needed

Pre-heat oven to 350˚F. (I use my toaster oven)

  • 9 x 9 pan or Pyrex dish
  • non-stick spray (I use the generic Wal-Mart brand 'Great Value' butter flavor)
  • 2 (21-ounce) cans of pie filling (I use Lucky Leaf Premium, apple)
  • 1 box cake mix (I use Duncan Hines Decadent Apple Caramel)
  • 1 stick of butter
  • Cinnamon sugar blend (I use McCormick)
  • Powdered nutmeg (I use McCormick)
  • Spoon for spreading
  • Knife for slicing butter

Variation Ideas:

  • Pineapple upside-down cake mix over pineapple pie filling
  • Blueberry muffin mix over blueberry pie filling
  • Yellow cake mix over cherry pie filling
Spray a 9 x 9 pan or glass dish with cooking spray. I used the generic Wal-Mart brand, butter-flavored.

Grease the Pan

Spray a light even film of cooking spray onto your baking dish. Make sure to include the sides.

Add Your Pie Filling

Evenly spread out two cans of pie filling into your baking dish.

Evenly and lightly dust with cinnamon-sugar and nutmeg

Lightly Dust the Pie Filling With Your Spices

  • Sprinkle the top of the pie filling with cinnamon-sugar.
  • Sprinkle the top of the pie filling with nutmeg.

Note: If you use a berry pie filling, you will want to skip the cinnamon and nutmeg. Cinnamon and nutmeg will complement apples and pears, but not berries.

I used Duncan Hines Decadent Caramel Apple cake mix for my recipe. This mix comes with two packets. One is the standard cake mix and the other is the caramel apple mix.

Duncan Hines Decadent Cake Mixes

Duncan Hines has created a new series of cake mixes, these mixes feature an additional pouch created to enhance the flavor of standard cake mix.

I used the Apple Caramel mix for this recipe.

Evenly sprinkle all of the apple caramel contents over the apples.

Evenly sprinkle 1/2 of the contents of the cake mix bag over the caramel apple mix.

Evenly sprinkle 1/2 of the contents of the cake mix bag over the caramel apple mix.

Add Your Cake Mix

  1. Evenly add the caramel apple topping over the apples. Take care in spreading the mix over all of the apples. Make sure to include the corners and edges.
  2. Evenly add the basic cake mix over the previous mix. Make sure to spread as evenly as possible. I only needed about half a bag. (Save the extra cake mix for a future recipe!)
I only needed about half of the bag. Roll the edges of the tops down and store in a ziploc baggie for future use. I might add it to my pancake or waffle mix in the near future.

Sprinkle Another Layer of Spices Over the Cake Mix

  1. Sprinkle a light layer of nutmeg over the cake mix.
  2. Next, sprinkle a light layer of cinnamon-sugar over the cake mix.
Cut long and even slices of real butter and layer them over the mixture. Make sure the slices are thin and as even as possible.

I did my best to evenly cover the mixture with my butter slices. Optional: Add a very light layer of cinnamon and sugar over the butter slices before baking.

Put Butter Slices on Top and Bake

  • Cut long and even slices of real butter and layer them over the mixture.
  • Place your prepared 9 x 9 pan into an oven preheated to 350˚F.
  • Check for doneness at 20 to 25 minutes.
  • You want the topping to be a warm golden brown.
  • Serve warm. Tastes great with vanilla ice-cream.
  • Enjoy!
The nice thing about a 9 x 9 pan is they usually fit in a toaster oven. This saves time, space and energy.

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on May 16, 2015:

Thanks Marisa for that tip. I don't know why I don't like it. But I love applesauce, apple juice and apple cider.

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on May 15, 2015:

Hi Kristen, you don't like apple pie? No problem! Just pick your favorite pie filling and try this recipe with that, it will work just as well. Enjoy!

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on May 15, 2015:

This looks like a delicious cake, Miss Olive. I'm not a big apple pie or cake fan. But I'm willing to give this a try. Voted up!

Heuchera on April 08, 2014:

Great hub, and a delicious-sounding recipe. Looks easy, too, which is just what I need for tonight. Stored fresh apples should work. Thanks!

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on March 15, 2014:

Glimmer Twin Fan, thank you for all the wonderful shares, I hope you enjoy the recipe.

VVanNess, thank you so very much, I'm glad to hear you loved the pictures.

Victoria Van Ness from Fountain, CO on March 14, 2014:

Wow, this looks amazing! I love the pictures. :)

Claudia Mitchell on March 13, 2014:

I love dump cakes and this one looks wonderful. Shared around!

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on June 20, 2013:

cclitgirl, hi Cyndi, do you know how happy it makes me to read your comment? I saw your comment long ago and it warmed me to no end, I fully intended to respond. You always know how to make me smile. So sorry it took me so long to respond, these comments have 'run away' from me plus, I found a couple I had missed after you were last here.

tillsontitan, awww, thank you! Sometimes the easy ones are the best and this one couldn't be much easier to make. I'm glad you liked the pictures and greatly appreciate all of your support and votes.

SMIT, my apologies for any confusion. I have added the option to the photo for clarification. Yes, I do add a light sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar over the butter prior to baking - it is optional though. It slightly changes the texture of the top layer to a crunchy glaze. Thank you very much for posting the question and allowing me the opportunity to clarify. I hope you enjoy the recipe.

SMIT from San Diego on June 18, 2013:

It looks as though you sprinkle cinnamon/sugar and nutmeg on the butter pieces as well but the narrative doesn't say to do this. Can you clarify please Miss Olive?

Mary Craig from New York on December 10, 2012:

This has to be one of the best recipes and hubs ever! I can't even imagine how simple such a good looking dessert can be. Your pictures are fabulous, leaving nothing to the imagination so everything you need is right here! GREAT.

Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting and shared, oh, and pinned too!

Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on December 10, 2012:

I come back to this hub from time to time because I keep making this stuff for family and friends and THEY ALWAYS RAVE about it!! Just thought I'd let you know cuz you're fantasticolio, awesomesauce, and cooljello like that. ;)

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on September 04, 2012:

kelleyward, cherry dump cake sounds delicious....ohhhhh about the diabetes. I have to keep an eye on my mom. She is diabetic and is easily tempted and other times she is strong as nails.

locknloaded81, yummy is right! Cooking is a nice past time...so many wonderful memories in the kitchen. Especially with family and friends. Give this a try, I'm sure you'll enjoy how easy and tasty this recipe is.

ElleBee, Ohhhhh fresh apples would be wonderful with this. Now you have me craving all those warm cinnamon flavors that come with the approaching fall season. Thanks for reading and commenting.

ElleBee on September 02, 2012:

This looks delicious! Now that apple season is here it seems like it would be a sacrelige to used canned instead of fresh here in New England, but I might save this for a wintertime treat :)

locknloaded81 on September 02, 2012:

witwew... yummy! its a great a pastime to me, cooking !.. love your hub so much, thanks for sharing this. i think this is easy and very delicious :) keep posting Marisa. blessed!

kelleyward on September 01, 2012:

Yum!! I use to make cherry dump cake and it was soooo good. I have diabetes now so I stay away from this stuff. But I could make this for my boys, I have a lot of apples right now. Yum! Kelley

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on September 01, 2012:

cclitgirl, hahaha you sound like me and my recipe hubs. It gets a bit messy at times. I'm sure you and your family are going to enjoy this.

Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on September 01, 2012:

Awesome! I didn't see it - it's there...I'm just thrilled to be making this and I'm scrolling through as I'm baking. :D Haha. Got cake mix all over my fingers. ;)

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on September 01, 2012:

cclitgirl, Yes, set it to 350. I think many of us have forgotten to pre-heat our ovens when baking. I do think I remembered. It is the first step. :)

Enjoy!

Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on September 01, 2012:

Beautiful, MO!! One quick question. Do you set the oven at 350?

Marisa Hammond Olivares (author) from Texas on July 16, 2012:

lord de cross, Hi! Thank you for checking out my recipe - si es delicioso! Glad you liked the hub design.

Joseph De Cross from New York on July 14, 2012:

Thelma Alberts, I appreciate that! Apple desserts are one of my favs - especially in the Fall. Glad to share.

StellaSee, I'm a visual person and I'm glad you liked the pictures. It is great to hear that they are useful. You know, this does taste like pie sans the pie crust flavor - closer to an apple crisp.

StellaSee from California on July 13, 2012:

Hey missolive! Thanks for writing a recipe that has step-by-step picture guide, I love that! So does the apple dump cake taste like an apple pie without the crust? I might try making this, it sounds a lot simpler than making a pie :D

Thelma Alberts from Germany and Philippines on July 13, 2012:

Congrats on the HOTD! I t sounds and look yummy. I love apple cakes. Voted up useful. Thanks for sharing.

K Nicole Smith from Huntsville, AL on January 23, 2012:

I love dump cake recipes! That's always my go to recipe for pot lucks at work and quick desserts at home. I never tried the cinnamon and the nutmeg. I also usually melt my butter and pour it over. I never thought about using butter slices to cover it. INGENIOUS!! I can't wait to try this the next time I make one!!!

This is my go-to/standby dessert. We like doing pineapple and cherry together with a yellow or white cake mix. I stock up on cake mixes when they're on sale (and we like Betty Crocker because of the BoxTops 4 Education). Haven't tried apple yet, but I'm sure it would be good, straight out of the oven, with vanilla ice cream melting over it!

Voted up and awesome.

With busy lifestyles a quick and easy desert like this is great.
