Apple Pie Dump Cake! (No Butter required!)

Dump cakes are awesome… usually a few ingredients tossed stirred together and baked.  So easy… except one of those ingredients usually tends to be a whole lot of butter!  I personally try to stay away from recipes that consist of pounds of butter (except for holiday baking!).

I played around with a few different ingredients to see if I could come up with a yummy and simple dump cake that didn’t have all that fat in it.  The results were awesome… and allowed for a little bit of a bigger scoop of ice cream!  The second day we drizzled it with a bit of caramel sauce… let me tell you, that was a GOOD idea!

This cake is SO moist that it won’t last longer than a couple of days on the counter.  If it’s going to be longer than that, you may like to freeze some of it or store it in the fridge.

  1. If I make a pumpkin dump cake, would it work if I prepared and dumped the pumpkin filling part first, then followed by layering the cake mix /applesauce mixture?

  2. What a moist cake! I told my husband as it was cooling that I thought I made a mistake because I added the apple pie filling by hand after mixing the cake mix and applesauce, leaving the apples in slices. Before he had his second forkful to his mouth he said “I don’t think you should change a thing!”
    Have you ever made this with blueberry pie filling? I think he would like that too.
