Apple Dump Cake

How do you like these apples?

So, this came about because we had a bunch of apples that we needed to use up. Naturally I took to Pinterest to try and find something easy to do with our excess of apples. After much perusing, it seemed that a dump cake would be easy and relatively painless to make.

Adapted from: Cake Mix Apple Crisp


  • Around 10 apples. ( I had a bunch of small red delicious and a couple of bigger golden delicious.)
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • 1/4 cup of butter, melted


  1. Peel apples and cut them into slices. (The toughest part for me, I haven’t mastered the art of peeling.)
  2. Spread them into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the apples.
  4. Dump the cake mix on top, making sure to cover all of the apples. (You may not need all of the cake mix! I made the mistake of putting too much and some of it didn’t come out quite right.)
  5. Drizzle the melted butter over top of the cake mix.
  6. Bake on 350 for thirty minutes or until cake mix is golden brown.

Verdict: Nearly A Win

I think this would’ve come out perfect if I had not decided to just dump the entire cake mix on there. As it was the cake mix didn’t all cook up the way I had envisioned when I thought of my perfect appley dessert. That being said, the apples came out quite tasty! I would definitely try it again.
