This Apple Dump Cake looks like a cake but tastes like an apple pie. You can never eat too many apples in the fall or any time of year for that matter.

What You'll Need

  • 5 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced*
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-1/4 cup apple cider or juice
  • 18 ounce box yellow
  • cake mix
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc),
  • lightly toasted

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease  a 9x13 pan.
  2. In the pan, mix apples with 2 teaspoons cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. Spread evenly in the pan. Cover with apple cider.
  3. Sprinkle dry cake mix over apple mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon.
  4. Pour melted butter over top.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Recipe Tips

  • It doesn't taste quite as good, but to make it easier you may substitute 2 cans of pie filling for apples, water, and sugar. Stir in cinnamon and nutmeg. Spread in pan and complete as above.
