Load up your slow cooker with this Fall Dump Cake for the easiest, sweetest, autumn-flared scents to circulate your surroundings for hours. Not only does it smell like all your fall fantasies, but the way the syrupy apple filling blends so nicely with the crumbly, cinnamon-coated cake will have you dancing around like a leaf on a windy day. Your senses will totally fall for Fall Dump Cake! 'Tis the season!


2 (20-ounce) cans apple pie filling 1 (15.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon whipped topping, to taste, for topping


Step 1 In a slow cooker, add the apple pie filling.

Step 2 Evenly sprinkle the cake mix over the filling, then dot it all over with the butter cubes.

Step 3 Sprinkle the cinnamon over the apple mixture.

Step 4 Cover the slow cooker and cook on high heat until the filling is bubbly and the top is golden-brown, about 2 hours.

Step 5 Serve the dump cake with the whipped topping.


  1. Thanks, Cheryl. Gonna have to try this.

    1. Hi Dennis! I went to the store this morning and bought everything I need--this will be one of the desserts for Thanksgiving. I love anything this easy, and it sounds like it's going to be really good!

    1. Agnes, I have not made it yet, either, but will be making it this week for our Thanksgiving celebration. We do ours on Friday so my son and his wife can go to her family's huge get-togethers on Thursday.

  3. Yum I'm going to try this for the holidays!

    1. Jes, I am too--and looking on the internet there are ALL KINDS of variations on this--some with blueberry instead of apple, and some with oats instead of the cake mix. This one sounds good and easy though, so it's my "pick" to at least have a starting point from.
