What Is a Slow Cooker Dump Cake?

A slow cooker dump cake is very similar to a cobbler but a dump cake has a cake top. It’s named this because the fruit is poured into a slow cooker followed by a cake mix and slices of butter and whatever other toppings are in the recipe. There is no mixing needed at all.


It doesn’t look so pretty, hence the name dump cake, but it tastes amazing. The whole cake was devoured in seconds and everyone was asking for the recipe.

It’s the perfect recipe for a potluck or holiday dessert, you just set it and forget it, until you smell the incredible wafts coming from your kitchen.

The combo of the caramel apple cake and vanilla ice cream… oh my goodness, it doesn’t get any better than this!!

How to make Crockpot Apple Dump Cake:

Dump out one 20-ounce can of apple pie filling into the slow cooker.



 

On top of the apples, pour out one bag of yellow cake mix.

Pour ½ cup (1 stick) of melted butter on top of the cake mix.  (DO NOT MIX INGREDIENTS TOGETHER! Just keep layering them!)

Sprinkle ¼ cup cinnamon sugar over the butter.

Add ½ cup salted caramel chips on top.

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 3 ½ – 4 hours or on high for 2 hours. 

Don’t Open The Lid Until The Cake is Done

Every time you remove the lid, the slow cooker loses its heat, plus it takes a while to heat back up. There’s no need to remove the lid. And if you do open the lid, keep it as brief as possible and maybe tack on a minute or two of extra cooking time.

Topping ideas for Slow Cooker caramel apple dump cake:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Try different ice cream flavors. Butter Pecan is a favorite.
  • Freshly made Whipped cream
  • Cool Whip
  • Drizzle Caramel sauce on top. So delicious!
  • Top with nuts. Pecans or walnuts are a wonderful addition.
  • Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon when serving. It looks so pretty!

My favorite is a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a generous drizzle of caramel sauce. Try it!

This is such an easy dessert and a family favorite.  If you are looking for a simple recipe, you will love this one which is delicious.

There really isn’t much work to this dessert recipe. It’s a great example that it does not have to be a complicated recipe to taste great!
