You know as many times as I've seen the dump cake recipes, you'd think I would have made at least one by now because they all look so delicious...but I'm still trying to wrap my head around the concept of not mixing all of the ingredients together into a cake batter. This recipe, however, I think I'm gonna have to's like cake, apple pie, and caramel apples all in one. I agree with you though Mark...I'd probably add more apples than caramel as well.

It just doesn't get any easier than this Caramel Apple Dump Cake. A "one pot wonder" of a dessert, that us full of flavor, and yummy, cakey, gooyness that your family will absolutely love. So easy to whip up and enjoy on a brisk Fall evening with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in top, a cup of coffee and a good movie. That's it, my plans for tonight are set.

I made this for a coffee hour at my church, and everyone loved it! Served with vanilla ice cream. Delicious!!!

Made this for dessert. Was great but I used a little too much caramel( all I had was caramel-butterscotch topping). Was great anyway.

I'm not a huge fan of baked apples but I thought this was so delicious! I am going to make it again and again. I didn't have it with ice cream or whipped cream, but I think that would taste great with it.

Amazing but SO rich. I think I would do more apples and less caramel. But that's just me ) It'll be delicious either way

I love that this dessert isn't overly sweet - the apples are slightly tangy and the pecans add a tasty crunch!

This cake is so good! I love the crumbly texture of the cake, and the caramel flavor is absolutely delicious. Thumbs up!

Oh my gosh. This dessert is everything. The texture is literally perfect. The apples aren't crunchy and disrupting the texture. They're so soft, and everything about this is so delicious. Highly recommend.
