Dump cake

This is a recipe that may have been passed down in your family. I have had it many times, but always made by someone else. I decided it was time to try it out myself. If you like apple crisp or apple pie, this is an easy treat that will please your tastebuds. I can still smell my kitchen full of warm apple cinnamon smell. Mmmmm…

** We actually ate this for dessert, and then breakfast the next morning. Great for both!!


2 cans apple pie filling
2 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 box yellow cake mix
2 sticks butter
1 cup pecans, chopped
whipped cream or ice cream


Dump two cans of apple pie filling into a 9×13 pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Crumble the dry cake mix over the apple mixture. Sprinkle the pecans over the cake mix. Slice each stick of butter into 12 equal pieces, and place the pieces on top. Cook at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Growing up I was always mooching food off of my dad. Hence my nickname "Mooch". To me there are certain foods out there that you just have to have...therefore, making them a "mandatory mooch" if someone has it. I have always had a passion for food of all kinds, especially dessert. Now I can share that with all of my family and friends on my blog. Enjoy!! ~ Nichi

    So easy! I remember doing something like this when i was a kid. my mom would make cobbler like this, but it didn’t call for box cake mix, but for flour/sugar or something. but very similar. This sounds like a great idea when you have company coming and need a quick dessert!
