Apple Gingerbread Dump Cake

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

Remember that one time I said I was done making delicious, ooey-gooey dump cakes?

Yeah, me either.

Good thing I forgot, because otherwise this little miracle wouldn't have graced my kitchen and therein, my mouth.

And then I wouldn't have been able to tell you how amazing this Apple Gingerbread Dump Cake recipe is, how it tastes like all the flavors of fall are having a party with your taste buds, how it takes THREE ingredients to make and how you no longer need to worry about what you're making for dessert/Thanksgiving/that holiday potluck party that Aunt Sally asked you to bring something to and you just now remembered. Whew! That was a close one.

And now I'm going to talk your ear off a little bit more about it because you really need to know how to dump a few things into a baking pan and call it a cake, mmmmkay?

Ingredients for Apple Gingerbread Dump Cake

Firstly, we need our ingredients. And by ingredients, I mean a box of gingerbread cake mix (that I would eat straight from the box with a spoon, if that was a socially acceptable thing to do), a couple cans of apple pie filling and a couple sticks of butter. Done and done.

Pouring the apple pie filling in

Pour the apple pie filling into the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch pan, juuuust liiiike theeeeees.

Sprinkling the cake mix evenly over the filling

Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the filling. Use a fork to spread out the filling and break up the clumps if necessary. Thus concludes the hardest part of the recipe.

Sliced butter spread over cake mix

Now spread the sliced butter all over that lovely cake mix. This is how the magic happens.

Bake until bubbling

Bake it all up in the oven for about an hour or so, until everything is baked through and nice and bubbly. Thus concludes the second hardest part of the recipe.

Apple Gingerbread Dump Cake, close up and ready to eat

Divide the cake among serving bowls, top with some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream and commence the party with your taste buds.

That's it and that's all, folks! Aunt Sally will be so proud.
