WHAT IS A DUMP CAKE?

Dump cakes may not have the prettiest name but they get it from the idea of dumping all the ingredients in and then letting it bake. In this case, we’re baking in a crock pot. They are some of the simplest but most scrumptious desserts you can make. Perfect for the holidays when oven space is at a premium! Also, this can be made with a single spiced boxed cake mix instead of the packs of muffin mix.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

  • Apple Cinnamon (or Apple Cider) muffin mix

slow cooker, apple cinnamon muffin mix, apple pie filling, real butter

HOW TO MAKE CROCK POT APPLE DUMP CAKE:

Lightly spray a 4-6 quart slow cooker (crock pot) with no-stick cooking spray.

Pour in two cans of apple pie filling.

Evenly sprinkle two packets of muffin mix on top of the apple pie filling. Make sure it is spread out and not too thick in any area.

Pour melted butter over entire muffin mix. Note: the butter won’t cover all the dry muffin mix.

Cover and cook on low for 3-5 hours. It took closer to 5 hours in my slow cooker. You want the top to be cooked thoroughly and the apple pie filling should be bubbling up from underneath.

  1. I made this today used a spice mix because I could not find the muffin mix. I cooked on low for 5 hours . Mine did not look like the picture where it looks crisp, it was mushy tasting . Was afraid to keep cooking because the apples were already soft . Any suggestions?

  2. I am building care packages for troops in Afghanistan. They have a slow cooker and slow cooker liners. My question is do you think that they could make this with melted butter flavor Crisco or maybe melted coconut oil instead of melted butter? I can only ship non-perishable foods to them. Thanks in advance! I've made many dump cakes and they seem to always be too sweet. I'm hopeful that the muffin mixes aren't as sweet. If you could comment on that as well as the butter replacement that would be awesome. Thanks.
