Apple Spice Dump Cake (or Crunch Cake if you prefer)
2 cans apple pie filling
1 box spice cake mix
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
Nuts – optional
Lightly spray a 9×13 casserole dish with non stick spray (I don’t even know if this is necessary, I just did it to be on the safe side.) Dump both cans of pie filling and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle DRY cake mix over the top in an even layer. Place slices of butter all over the top of the cake mix OR melt the butter and pour over the top…I don’t think it matters. (In the pic, I had only used one stick of butter, so I have some dry patches. Always trying to cut fat over here!) Sprinkle nuts over the top if using. Bake in a 350 F degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes…basically until golden brown on top.
Serve warm or room temp, with ice cream or without! In my opinion, this is best the day it is made b/c the topping is crunchy. It is still good the next day, but the top starts to soften from the filling.
There are so many variations too….
