If there’s one thing that we can’t resist at this time of year it’s things that smell like spices and apples. Luckily, this next recipe does both! We found this recipe (where else?) on Pinterest and we were eager to try it. Okay, we’ll admit we giggled a bit at the name but give this recipe a chance and you won’t regret it. We thought it was too good to be true but it turns out that it’s much better than that.
Crock-Pot Apple Spice Dump Cake
1 box of spice cake mix (we used Betty Crocker)
1 stick butter (melted)
Start by spraying your Crock-Pot with Pam cooking spray.
This is something we’ve never done before but let me tell you it sure makes clean up a breeze. We might start doing it more often.
Open the cans of apple pie filling and restrain yourself from eating any…oh go on then, have a taste. Now, pour both cans into the Crock-Pot and spread them evenly with a spatula.
Place your stick of butter in a small bowl and then microwave until melted.
In a large bowl, combine your cake mix and melted butter.
With a fork, stir the mixture until it becomes crumbly.
Spoon the crumb mix over the apples, covering as much area as you can.
Cook on high for 2 hours or until the top of the cake looks golden brown.
Serve warm alone or with your favorite frozen treat.
Not only was this recipe timely but it smelled and tasted delicious!
We started this recipe while making dinner and it was done just in time for dessert! This is definitely a recipe that we’ll be keeping on hand for those chilly fall nights. The texture of the cake is somewhere between bread pudding and oatmeal but the taste is something out of this world. Have you ever picked up a holiday spice candle, smelled it and wanted to eat it?
Well, this is sort of like that and now you can.
