How to Make an Easy Dump Cake: Apple Dump Cake Recipe

Hi there! Holly here from Club Crafted again with the easiest recipe you’ll make this season. Dump cakes are the crowning jewel of easy recipes, so they make great party dishes in a pinch, and this delicious apple dump cake is no different.

Apple Dump Cake Apple Dump Cake

Baked in a casserole dish, you can make this cake with only THREE ingredients thanks to the amazing invention of boxed cake mix. Served warm, this recipe has a texture similar to an apple crumble but with about one-fourth of the effort. Personally, I think it’s best topped with ice cream and a little caramel, but even plain, it tastes delicious. You can’t go wrong with a recipe as easy as this one, and the flavor of the spice cake brings you right back to the holidays.

Apple Dump Cake


Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Spray a casserole disk (about 13×9 in) with cooking spray.

Pour the apple pie filling into the prepared pan, spreading out with a spatula. In a bowl, combine spice cake mix and melted butter and stir with a spoon until mixed. Pour on top of the apple filling and spread out with a spatula.

Bake for about 45 minutes until the top is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out batter free. Let cool for about ten minutes.

Scoop the cake into bowls or ramekins (warm is better!) and top with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon or drizzled caramel and dig in! It’s just as good as an apple crumble or apple pie without the effort!
