In an effort to keep things simple…
I made you a dump cake! An Apple Cinnamon one to be exact because, you know, it’s Fall. I have only one other dump cake recipe on the blog…it’s a Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake which is my grandma’s recipe and it’s downright amazing. I am thinking we need to add a few more…I’ll work on that for you…
Now onto this Apple Cinnamon Dump Cake!
This recipe could not be ANY easier. There are no bowls and no stirring. You simply chop up some apples and toss them with cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in the same baking dish that you bake the cake in. Then you dump the rest of the ingredients on top – cake mix, pecans, butter then bake.
This cake screams Thanksgiving dessert. It’s warm, comforting and EASY. My mom was visiting and she tried it and she couldn’t stop eating it. Vin and I felt the same which is why we brought it to my sisters, otherwise the entire cake would be in my belly and there’s not much room left in there, as you may know…
It’s chewy, soft and crunchy. The pecans on top are a MUST. If you don’t have pecans you could use almonds or walnuts, just watch closely so that the almonds don’t burn. If they do, lightly tent a piece of tinfoil on top.
That’s all I got…there’s not much more to say about this one. It’s simple, delicious and easy. Just how we like it during the holiday months, right?!

- 5 apples, peeled and cut into one inch pieces (I used a mixture of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted (salted is fine, too)
- 1 box yellow cake mix (I used Pillsbury)
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9x13 pan with some of the melted better.
- Add diced apples to the greased pan then sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, granulated sugar and vanilla. Toss apples with your hands to evenly coat them.
- Next evenly pour cake mix on top of apples. Dust with more cinnamon and add chopped pecans.
- Finally, pour melted butter all over the top and bake for 45-50 minutes until bubbly and lightly browned. Let cool completely before cutting. Eat as is or serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
