How To Make Apple Spice Dump Cake


  • spice cake mix
  • apple pie filling
  • melted butter

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then I spray a  9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. 

Dump your cans of apple pie filling into the bottom of the dish and spread evenly to fill the bottom of the pan.

Apple Pie Filling

Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top of the apple pie filling. Spice cake mix is great because it already has all those wonderful fall spices: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, etc. You want an even coating of the spiced cake mix over the apples.

Then you will pour the melted butter over the top of the cake mix.
