Tender apples, warm apple pie spice and a buttery cake mix topping make this Fall flavored dessert a fast favorite! With just 4 ingredients from your pantry and fridge, this is the Easiest Apple Pie Dump Cake recipe!


  • 20 ounce can of apple pie filling
  • 15 oz box yellow cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a 9 inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Spread the apple pie filling in an even layer in the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry yellow cake mix and 1 teaspoon of the apple pie spice. Use the whisk to break up any large clumps of cake mix.
  4. Spread the dry cake mixture over the apple pie filling in an even layer.
  5. Drizzle the melted butter over the cake mix and use the back of a spoon to move the butter to try to get most of the dry cake mix covered. 
  6. Bake for 40 minutes or until the cake mix topping is lightly browned and baked through.
