Everyone loves a dump cake (despite that horrible name) and there's a good reason: they're magical! What else takes just 4 ingredients, less time to throw together than it takes to preheat your oven, and only one dish? Not to mention how delicious they end up tasting! This apple spice dump cake tastes just like fall, and satisfies a dessert craving quickly!
Serves: 10
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 (21-ounce) cans country apple pie filling
  • 1 (15.25-ounce) package spice cake mix
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • ice cream for serving, optional
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. On a baking sheet lined with foil, toast the pecans for 6-8 minutes or until fragrant, tossing frequently.
  2. Mix the apple pie filling and about half of the toasted pecans together in the prepared glass baking dish. Sprinkle the cake mix over top and then pour the butter evenly over the cake mix. Bake for 35-38 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle on the rest of the toasted pecans and serve immediately with ice cream.

    Wow, Julie, I’m so sorry you have had to struggle with this… and more sorry that the medicine that actually works for you is so crazy expensive. Thinking about you and hoping that going back on the Rx helps you feel and work a lot better!

    My son wasn’t diagnosed until his senior year. The only medication he found that worked was adderall , 2 times a day. He is an excellent computer programer but with out his meds life is very difficult. What drug do you take?

    The extended release have never work.

      I’m so glad he found what worked for him! I take Concerta — the only medicine that works for me after trying four others!
