I think I must be the only person who had never heard of dump cake! It wasn’t until recently when my mother-in-law introduced me to the idea of a dump cake. So I couldn’t wait to try. I decided to make this Kids Apple Dump Cake with apple filling rather than cherry or blueberry.

It literally has three steps and it’s delish!

Kids Dump Cake

Here’s what you need:

Kids Apple Dump Cake



  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Using a 9 x 13 inch pan, dump out both cans of apple filling and spread out
  • Add the yellow cake mix to the top of the apples and spread out so it covers all of the apples
  • Add slices of butter to the top of the dump cake before you put it in the oven
  • Bake for up to 1 and a half hours.  You will want to make sure the top is slightly browned before you remove from the oven
