3 Ingredient Apple “Dump” Cake


Apple Dump Cake Hip2Save.com

If you’re looking for an easy cake that doesn’t even require a mixing bowl, try this yummy three ingredient apple “dump” cake! This dessert tastes like a cross between a cake and an apple cobbler.

Apple “Dump Cake” Recipe

(Adapted from Come Together Kids)


one yellow cake mix
7 apples, sliced
1 stick of butter
sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (optional)

How to make an apple dump cakeDirections:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease or spray a 9×13 cake pan. Slice apples and place them evenly in the pan (optional step —-> sprinkle a little cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice over apples). Sprinkle the cake mix over the top of the apples. Melt butter and drizzle over the top of cake mix. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes until the apples are tender and cake gets nice and brown on top. (Tip: The water from the apples should soak in with the cake mix but if you’re noticing the cake mix isn’t completely cooking, just sprinkle a little water over those areas and put back in oven). Serve with some vanilla ice cream on top if desired.

This was a super easy dessert and a great way to make use of fresh apples! Another perk – it makes the house smell amazing!

  2. Kristina

    I also add pineapple the best

  3. Kristina

    I mean I do mine with cherries and pineapple

  4. Jenna

    My family has made the cherry and pineapple dumpcake for 30 years! I also like it with apples, peaches, or pumpkin.

    • Heather C

      Yes, mine too- they are a family birthday favorite & so EASY to make 😋

    Looks scrumptious. I want to try this tonight but I only have yellow cake mix in the house and it’s too cold to go back out. Do you think it would still turn our really good?

    • Tia

      It calls for yellow cake mix. What ingredient are you missing?

  7. K3llyb

    I didn’t like it the next day or after. It’s just not good as it sits and the apples let out some juice and turns the cake mix part to a gluey texture. The canned fruit actually fairs better in this kind of recipe. Considering how expensive real butter is you can sub it out of this recipe since the cake mix overwhelms any sense of butter flavor.

    I’ve only made dump cake with cherry pie filling before. My local Grocery Outlet has canned cherries on sale and I wondered if they would work, but if you can make it with fresh fruit, I don’t see why not. They also have peaches on sale. I can’t wait to try them. I love dump cake. It tastes like a special desert, but is so easy peasy.

  9. Sammy

    Dumb question but do u sprinkle the cake mix raw or with the oil, egg and mix as u would ordinarily make a cake. Dumb question I know lol

    • Richelle

      Not a dumb question. Just the cake mix not the other ingredients to make the cake. 🙂 this is so yummy. Good luck.

      • Sammy

        Thank u!!!

        • Mona

          I had the same question! Thanks Sammy for asking it and thanks Richelle for answering it 🙂

    • Hip mom

      Thank you Sammy for asking this question because otherwise I would have mixed all the things (eggs,oil …) 🙂

  10. Catie

    I bet this would be good with a spice cake mix!

    • Nancy

      I’ve done it with spice cake before and it is still delicious.

  11. terri

    You specifically mention yellow cake mix..I only have white…what would that do to the flavor, if anything?

  12. Leslie

    I’m going to try this with gluten free cake mix soon! Yay!!!

  13. Danielle

    We have the exact same thing for our Bean Pots @ Celebrating Home (that we call “Apple Crisp”), but it’s for the microwave and only takes 13-15 minutes!!! It’s soooo yummy!

    I froze cherries about a month ago. Does anyone know if they’ll work? If so, should I let them thaw out first?

  15. Jamie

    Do you need to peel the apples?
