APPLE DUMP CAKE – Dump, Bake and Eat

Thank you for sharing!

The weather is hot and I feel lazy and at the same time, I thought of a cake. Something like the Apple Dump Cake.

I learned to make this cake a few years back. It is very easy and almost no effort at all. 

Apple Dump Cake

I guess the reason why it is called Apple Dump Cake because you will almost just dump all 4 ingredients in a casserole dish or pan and then place it in the oven. After a few minutes, voila! A nice sweet-smelling, luscious cake!Apple Dump Cake

Put these ingredients on your list

All the ingredients are easy to find in every groceries and supermarket.

  • A box of Angel Food Cake Mix and a can of Apple Pie Filling
  • Powdered Cinnamon – You’ll need a tablespoon.
  • Sugar – if you don’t have that in your kitchen anymore. (Wink)

I also have a tip: If you prefer to give a little more effort for the cake. You can use fresh apples and slice them thinly instead of Apple Pie Filling. 

You may use brown sugar too if you prefer.

If for any reason you didn’t find any Angel Food Cake Mix, you can also use any Yellow Cake Mix.

Here is how you make your Apple Dump Cake:

Preheat your oven to 350°F

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cake mix and Apple Pie Filling.

You can also put them straight into the baking pan. Spread the apples first and then pour in the cake mix to cover the apple.

Combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly on top of the cake.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

There you go. Easy as one, two, and three. 


  • A teaspoon of nutmeg along with the sugar and cinnamon can be added. You may also add chopped pecan or walnuts as toppings or along with the apples, about  ½ cup.
  • You may add ⅓ – ½ c butter along with the toppings.
  • Try it out with other fruit fillings like strawberries or blueberry pie fillings.
