Baked Bree Recipe by

I really don't think that there's an easier cake than this one. If you can mix and pour, you can make it. A cross between cake and cobbler, this dessert screams fall! 8 servings

Caramel Apple Dump Cake  

As prepared by Baked Bree

Last fall I discovered the beauty of dump cake.


The name is really not the most appealing (let’s be honest) but the end result – so good! I was shocked to discover that it takes about 5 minutes to put together. You literally dump the ingredients into a pan, give it a quick mix with a fork, and sprinkle it with cake mix and melted butter.

Uh, I can totally do that.

And so can you!

I take mine to the next level with my own spiced whipped cream. My mom reminded me a few months ago how easy it is to whip cream by hand. She “reminded” me by telling me that my sister always whips her cream by hand and that maybe I should try it that way too.

I took that as a challenge. Wouldn’t you?

Sometimes, it is easier and less of a mess to just use a cold bowl and a whisk. Yes, it takes some work, but just think of it as exercise. Which you just might need after you eat a whole pan of dump cake!

Not that I have ever done that or anything.

Ingredients for Caramel Apple Dump Cake

You can make dump cake with any pie filling that you like, but I really like apple.

Adding initial ingredients to pan

Spray a 9”x13” pan with cooking spray. Add the apple pie filling, caramel sauce, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Give it a quick mix with a fork.

Cake mix spread on top

Open the cake mix and spread it all over the top of the cake.

Melted butter over cake mix

Pour the melted butter over.

Adding pecans

Add the pecans. Bake in a 350F degree oven for about 35 minutes. Let it cool.

Whisking cream

While the cake is cooling, put a large metal bowl and a whisk in the freezer until both are very cold. Add the cream and whisk until soft peaks form. It takes about 6 to 8 minutes.

Adding powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon

Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk until combined.
