Dump cakes are an extremely easy and popular dessert. This caramel apple version is amazing. It's a cross between an apple fritter and pecan pie. Typically dump cakes just use a fruit filling, but this recipe includes thinly sliced apples which (along with chopped pecans) add texture to the cake. Apple juice amps up the apple flavor. Yum!


  • 1 - 2 Granny Smith apples (you'll need 1 cup of paper-thin sliced apples)
  • 1/2 c apple juice
  • 1 can apple pie filling (16 oz)
  • 1/4 c chopped pecans
  • 6 tsp cinnamon, divided
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 4 Tbsp caramel topping (for ice cream)
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (15.25 oz)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 4 Tbsp brown sugar
