Apple Dump Cake


Cissy still likes to come over one day a week, after school, and we bake together.  This week she made a quick and easy dessert to take home to her family.  The inspiration came from my Quick and Easy Dump Cake Cookbook that my son, Mike, gave me.  We are enjoying it outside on a warm, Fall day.  

 

Getting out my Fall teacups is always like meeting old friends.  This Johnson Brothers Harvest Time teacup is a favorite.  

 

My daughter took a picture of Cissy once she got home, as I had forgotten to! Cissy wore and Ohio State shirt, as it was favorite college team shirt day at school.  My grands are Ohio State fans, too, since all four of my kids were born in Columbus, Ohio.


Yield: 9 servings

Apple Dump Cake

Cissy and I made this after school, for her take home to her family. It's a quick dessert and it was something easy for her to assemble. It's good with a scoop of vanilla or some whipped cream.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • some freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 package of yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (we used some caramel bits, but toffee bits would be good, too)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Spread apple pie filling in prepared pan and add the spices, and mix. Top with dry cake mix, spreading evenly. Top with butter in a single layer. Sprinkle on the nuts.
  3. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool at least 15 minutes before serving.

  15. Love those dump cake recipes! I just made the one with cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple. Since I have to watch the sugar, I used a sugar-free cake mix and lite pie filling (has Splenda in it), and crushed pineapple in 100% natural juice. It was great!
