Apple Dump Cake #recipe

We went apple picking today and picked a bunch of Cortland and Johnny Gold apples.  I saw a bunch of different dump cake recipes online and hubby immediately asked if I could make some type of apple cake tonight.  I of course obliged, who can resist the smell of apples baking in the oven?

3 - Large apples sliced apples
1 - Package yellow cake mix
1 - Stick of butter
1 - Tbsp. sugar/cinnamon mixture

I cut up 2 Johnny Gold and 1 Cortland
Spray a rectangular glass cooking dish with cooking Spray.  Layer apple slices (or other fruit) at the bottom of a pan that has been coated with non-stick spray.

Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the sliced apples.

Melt the stick of butter in the microwave on low heat in a microwave safe container.  Pour the melted butter over the cake.

I then sprinkled the sugar/cinnamon mixture on the top and placed in the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees  for approximately 45 minutes.  If you notice it still dry in areas while baking, it is okay to add a Tsp. or so of water to the areas that is still the dry cake mix.

Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream!


  1. What a easy recipe. I've been wanting a apple cake recipe. Glad I looked through yours. Sounds good. I wonder how it would be if you used a Spice Cake mix?

  2. Seeing this recipe reminds me of the apple cake I had made from I want an apple cake. I love it but could eat it all day long it is soooo good. Yours looks easier to make, I'll have to try this one too.

  3. My other comment may not have gone through. I make my own apple cake and haven't in awhile but it is all from scratch and I love it. I'd really like to try this because it too, looks fabulous. Thanks for sharing this

  4. Our household is small so I use the small Jiffy cake mix, one large or 2 small granny smith apples, and about 3/4 stick of butter. Soooooo good and just the right size - four reasonable size servings, or three generous ones.

  5. Any suggestions on how to reduce calories (at least a butter substitue?) Thanks!
