I pinned it, I made it, I ate it …. Apple Dump Cake

It was a success!  I pinned an Apple Dump Cake last week to my Food board on Pinterest.  I thought I would make it for dessert on Easter.  I did!  It was good!  I changed up the recipe just a bit by using different apples, but other than that, I followed the recipe as written.  The original recipe came from a blog called “CookBlog.org” and the recipe is called “Fresh Apple Cake“.

All you need is three ingredients –

Yellow Cake Mix

I used a 9 x 13 glass dish and buttered the bottom and sides.

I used 3 Granny Smith apples, 1 Honey Crisp Apple, 1 Golden Delicious and 1 Gala.  The reason I used so many different kinds, was that I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use!  I have made an apple recipe that calls for Granny Smith and Honey Crisp and it is SO good, so I figured I would make this “cake” the same way.

I peeled my apples and sliced them, layering them in the pan.  I alternated types of apples.

I poured the entire box of cake mix over my apples.

I melted one stick of butter and poured that over the cake mix.

I did as the original recipe called for and drizzled a bit of water over the areas of cake mix that looked dry.

After I baked it about 45 minutes at 350, there were still dry areas of cake mix, so I topped those areas with thin slices of butter … more butter is better right?  Yikes!

I baked it until the top looked done and I could see that the apples were bubbling away.

It was a hit!  Served with some vanilla ice cream.  It didn’t taste that sweet … maybe because of the apples.

You could add some cinnamon too, that would be good!
