Caramel apple dump cake with pecans
0 from 0 votes


  • 2 cans apple pie filling
  • 1 box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup quick-cook oats
  • 1 cup pecans (chopped)
  • 2 sticks butter (melted)
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together apple pie filling, cinnamon, and caramel. Pour into the bottom of a 9 by 13 baking dish. Spread into an even layer.

  3. In another bowl, mix together cake mix and oatmeal. Pour over the apple pie filling into a single layer. I only used about 3/4 of this mixture. Discard the rest.

  4. Top with pecans and evenly pour butter over the entire cake. Then place in the oven. Cook for 40-55 minutes, or until caramel bubbles through the topping and a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean. If your pecans or corners start to get too brown, cover with aluminum foil for the last 10-15 minutes. 

  5. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
