How to Make Caramel Apple Dump Cake

Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • The key to success with this recipe is to make sure that all the cake mix gets covered with melted butter. Slowly drizzle the butter so you can get it all covered. If you are short a few spots, you can add a dollop of unmelted butter or melt a bit more to get it covered.
  • I used a box of yellow cake mix. Feel free to use any flavor cake mix you prefer. Spice cake mix or butter pecan cake mix would be delicious.
  • Feel free to sprinkle the apples with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and pecans.
  • I used Smucker’s caramel ice cream topping.
  • Can Caramel Apple Dump Cake be made in the slow cooker? Yes! Prepare the cake the same way in the crockpot. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours.
  • Does Caramel Apple Dump Cake need to be refrigerated? You can, but it isn’t necessary to refrigerate the cake. Refrigerating the cake extends the life of the leftovers.
  • The cake will keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator or 1 to 2 days on the countertop.
  • Can you freeze Apple Dump Cake? Yes! You can freeze the baked cake for up to 3 months.
