I’m asking for a friend…

I mean, mid-October isn’t that weird when you consider the fact the majority of the stores already have some of their Christmas inventory out, right? And, after this post, I’ve now seen a second Christmas commercial.

And Hallmark is planning on starting their cheesy-but-lovable-Christmas-movie-two-month-marathon-extravaganza in a couple of weeks (don’t ask how I know this), so listening to a little holly jolly music a few weeks early is practically nothing…

Please don’t judge me (for that 👆 or for showing you the best, easiest slow cooker dessert in the world).

Saying things like, ‘hey, want some dump cake?’ doesn’t really bring to mind warm, fuzzy feelings of maybe wanting to eat your feelings in delicious cake.

I was first introduced to dump cake in college, and was pretty confused by the name until I realized it came from the fact that you dump all of the ingredients into a dish. Clever, yeah? So, this cake is practical and ridiculously easy.

The video says it all.

This cake is amazing when served warm with a scoop of ice cream or giant helping of whipped cream, so making it in the slow cooker (crock-pot) is not only convenient since you can set it and forget it, it also allows you to keep the cake on the ‘warm’ setting so that it stays warm as long as you need it to be.

Probably the most genius kitchen appliance there is.

Slow Cooker Apple Dump Cake

10 minPrep Time

4 hrCook Time

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped apples (I used Jonagold apples, but any kind would be fine)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup apple cider (or apple juice)
  • 1 box spice cake mix (yellow or white would work as well, it just won't have as much spiced flavor)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Instructions

  1. Spray the bottom of a slow cooker with baking spray (I used a 3.5 quart crock-pot, but a 4 or 4.5 quart would be fine). Add apples to the bottom of the dish in an even layer.
  2. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the apples. Pour apple cider over the apples.
  3. Evenly sprinkle the cake mix on top of the apples.
  4. Pour butter over the cake mix.
  5. Place lid on slow cooker.**
  6. Cook on high for 3 1/2 - 4 hours (until there isn't any dry cake mix and the middle of the cake looks set).
  7. Best when served warm. Add ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
  8. Enjoy!

Notes

**You can place a paper towel between the lid and the slow cooker if you are worried about condensation dripping on the cake. My slow cooker lid has a hole in it to release condensation, so I did not need a paper towel.
