Ingredients

Box of yellow cake mix, apple pie spice, melted butter, and canned apple pie filling on a counter.

Instructions

  1. Get the Party Started: Heat your oven to a chill 350°F (175°C) and give a quick spray to a 9×13 baking dish with some non-stick magic spray.
  2. Layer It Up: Toss that apple pie filling into the baking dish, spreading it out like you’re creating a fruity masterpiece.
  3. Dump It, Spread It, Spice It: Pour dry cake mix over the apples, making sure it’s covering everything. It’s like building a sweet mountain of goodness. Sprinkle that cool apple pie spice all over, letting it do its fragrant thing and amp up the flavor.
  4. Butter Bliss: Drizzle that melted butter all over the place – it’s the secret sauce that’ll make everything golden and delicious.
  5. Bake ‘n’ Enjoy: Toss your masterpiece into the oven and let it do its thing for 40-50 minutes. Watch for that golden-brown vibe and bubbliness – that’s your cue to dig in.
  6. Serve with a Smile: Once it’s out, let it cool a bit (or not, no judgment here) and serve it up. If you’re feeling fancy, add a scoop of ice cream, a blob of whipped cream, or drizzle with caramel sauce. The mix of hot and cold? Pure dessert magic.

Leftovers should be fine stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two. For longer storage – up to 5 days, store leftover apple dump cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
