What is a Dump Cake?

Dump Cakes are the best cakes to make. You dump everything into the crock pot. The dump cake in the crockpot cooks perfect on high with easy ingredients.

Some cakes are topped with fruit, others are topped with butter. I love that you layer the 4 ingredients and it comes out to an amazing dessert without a lot of work.

Apple Pie Dump Cake Tips:

  • Cooking time –  Crock pots can vary and the cooking time may need to be adjusted.
  • Remove the lid – If the top is not getting crispy, remove the lid in the last few minutes of cooking. This will help to remove any moisture that has formed.
  • Crockpot liners – Line the slow cooker with a liner to make clean up easy. This is such a time saver and very convenient. If you do not have any, make sure to spray the crock with cooking spray.

Variation ideas

  • Try spiced cake mix instead of yellow cake mix. Crockpot apple dump cake with spice cake mix is amazing.
  • White Cake mix is another good substitute.
  • Use other pie fillings such as cherry, blackberry, strawberry, blueberry and more! The ideas are endless.
  • You can easily make this in a baking dish.
