This super quick and easy scrumptious Apple Dump Cake is sure to please all of the apple lovers in your life. For an over the top dessert serve a la mode with warm caramel sauce.


  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cans (21 ounce) apple pie filling
  • 1 box (15.25 ounce) butter golden cake mix or yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup butter melted 
  • ¾ cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • (optional) vanilla ice cream
  • (optional) caramel sauce


  1. Preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl mix together cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
  3. Spoon the apple pie filling in a 9×13 inch baking dish.  Sprinkle with half of the mixed spices.  Sprinkle with the dry cake mix.  Drizzle with melted butter trying to cover as much of the top as possible.  Sprinkle with remaining mixed spices and top with chopped pecans.
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly on the edges.  If desired serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.


  • Buy the premium apple pie filling.  It just tastes better and is made with no high fructose corn syrup.  Plus the apples are slightly crispy and the filling tastes more like homemade.
  • If you have homemade apple pie filling by all means use it.
  • I use a golden butter cake mix but you can use a yellow cake mix or even a spice cake mix.
  • Walnuts can be substituted for the pecans.
