Recipe ~ Easy Apple Dump Cake

Dump-cakeThis is the only cake that I know how to make.  I do not remember where I got the recipe from, but I have been making this for at least 15 years.  This is a no fail, always perfect, cobbler like dessert that ANYbody can make.  It is especially fun to have the kids get involved.  Its called a “Dump” cake for a reason.  You are literally going to dump the ingredients into a pan and bake!


1 box of yellow cake mix
2 cans of your favorite pie filling (we use apple)
1 stick of margarine

Preheat the oven to 350
In an average size rectangle cake pan or any oven safe dish thats deep enough…

Dump in the 2 cans of pie filling.  (spread it evenly)
Dump the contents of the cake mix box on top of the pie filling (yes the dry cake mix)
Slice the margarine and place the slices on top of the cake mix.  Try to cover it as much as possible.
Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until its bubbling.

Cool or serve warm with scoops of ice cream for a wonderful summer treat!

Remember:  You can use ANY pie filling you want for this recipe OR crushed pineapples. Try using 1 can of crushed pineapples and 1 can of cherry pie filling.  Its yummy. Experiment and have fun!
