Preparation and Bake Time for Apple Dump Cake

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 6 Nice sized portions

Gather your ingredients

Preparation, Ingredients and Materials Needed

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

  • 1 - 9 x 9 pan or Pyrex dish
  • non-stick spray (I use the generic Wal-Mart brand 'Great Value' butter flavor)
  • 2 - 21oz. 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 -

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 two medium (21 oz.) sized cans of pie filling

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 Apple Caramel for this recipe.

Evenly sprinkle the cake mix and caramel apple mix over the apples

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 1/2 a bag. (Save the remaining mix for another recipe)

I only needed about 1/2 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.

Suggestion: Save the extra cake mix for a future recipe.

  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.

The nice thing about a 9 x 9 pan is they usually fit in a toaster oven. This saves time, space and energy.

Place in the center of the oven.

  • Place your prepared 9 x 9 pan into the oven.
  • Check for doneness at 20 - 25 minutes.
  • You want the topping to be a warm golden brown.
  • Serve warm. Tastes great with vanilla ice-cream - enjoy!

      This looks good. How much butter would you say this takes? Will have to try this soon.

      Looks awesome Missolive!!

      But I make my own apple mixture and cake if I wish?

      Will it turn out the same?

      Thanks.

      Hi Susan - in the picture it looks like a LOT of butter. I used one full stick. It is incredibly easy. A great activity for young chefs too! Thanks for stopping by :)

      JTWallters - if you only use just the dry ingredients for your cake mixture it should come out just fine. I bet this would taste amazing with FRESH ingredients!

      Thank you!

      Marisa Hammond Olivares 5 years ago from Texas

      JTWalters - I wanted to clarify my answer to your question :)

      make your dry mixture for your cake mix (without your wet ingredients- eggs, oil) sprinkle your dry cake mixture over your homemade fruit mixture. This should work out just fine :)

    • JT Walters profile image

      JT Walters 5 years ago from Florida

      Thanks missolive,

      If i make for this holiday season I will let you know how it turns out with the fresh ingredients. I would just use the same filing I use for my apple strudel. All pretty simple stuff. Home made cakes, to me and my friends, are always to superior. I made a mistake serving it once and now I am not allowed to severe them premade cake mixtures anymore.

      What are friends for?

      :)

      LOL,

      JTWalters - This brought back a funny memory that tugs on my heartstrings. My grandmother ALWAYS made everything from scratch. I remember making a cake when I was in high school. She came over and I proudly served her some. She LOVED it! Then she asked for the recipe. I literally ran to the trash can and dug up the Betty Crocker cake mix box and showed it to her. She snatched it out of my hand and smacked me on the bottom with it. "No granddaughter of mine is going to make a cake out of a box!", she exclaimed. She laughed at my wide eyes and said, "you little shite this tastes good"

      I will ALWAYS remember that story :) Plus, she really would say shite instead of....well, you know :)

      Your friends are VERY lucky to have you JT :)

      capricornrising - I actually set my MAC laptop on the counter and took the pictures with Photo Booth. It has an audible countdown before it captures the image. I did have to hold up the laptop for some of the angles though. Also, I did get some funny looks from my family as they walked in and out of the room :)

      Great question! :)

      Ps - my nephew (aged 7) has just asked me to say to you that he thinks your recipe looks 'beautiful'! LOL!!

      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!

      Lilleyth - Hi there, I'm sure you will like the new cake mix with the dump cake. The added flavor packet certainly spices it up a bit. Variations of flavors are fun too. Enjoy!

      Marisa Hammond Olivares 3 years ago from Texas

      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.
