Caramel Apple Dump Cake - tastes like Fall Y'all!! With only 4 simple ingredients, you can't go wrong with this easy dessert recipe! Apple pie filling, caramel sauce, cake mix, and butter. This only takes 5 minutes to make and is ready to eat in under 30 minutes. Great for a crowd. Serve warm with some vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream. I never have any leftovers! A real crowd pleaser!!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.
Pour apple pie filling into bottom of prepared pan. Drizzle caramel ice cream topping over apples.
Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over caramel and apples. Drizzle melted butter over dry cake mix, covering well.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve with ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
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 and nutmeg.
I used Smucker's caramel ice cream topping.
