This delicious apple pie dump cake recipe is a fall dessert you will return to again and again. For one thing, it's incredibly easy to make. As Addie mentions below, combining store bought ingredients in a homemade dessert recipe is a great shortcut. You'll notice a big difference in the prep time, and all anyone else will notice is how delicious the dessert tastes. Apple pie filling adds so much to this dessert, and it lends the cake that fall flavor that everyone starts to crave around September. When the leaves start to change colors, you'll know it's time to make this delicious apple dump cake recipe.

From the Chef: "Combining shortcut ingredients like cake mix and pie filling is one of my favorite behind-the- scenes party tricks. It’s so much easier to use a prepared filling than to peel, core, and chop up a bunch of apples (and you won’t even be able to tell the difference)."


Preparation Time10 min

Cooking Time45 min



  • 1 (21-ounce) can apple pie filling
  • 1 (16.5-ounce) box white cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced crystallized ginger
  • Caramel sauce for serving

Apple Pie Dump Cake Recipe


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 × 13-inch baking dish.

  2. Place the apple filling in a large bowl. Break up the apple pieces with a spoon or fork.

  3. Add the cake mix, eggs, and oil. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat for 2 minutes on medium speed until combined. Pour the batter into the baking dish.

  4. In a small bowl, mix the pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. Sprinkle the mixture over the cake.

  5. Bake the cake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Slice and serve with caramel sauce.
