3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Apple Dump Cake


In continuing on with our 3 ingredient recipe series, today I’m bringing you a delicious (Da-Lish-Ish) Apple Dump Cake Recipe! You may remember, I attempted this recipe last year with a slight modification and it turned into a big bat fail! Anyway, I had all the correct ingredients this time, and it came out delicious!



  • Can of Apple Pie Filling
  • Box of Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • Cook on low for 4 hours


The first thing you are going to want to do is dump the can of apple pie filling into the bottom of the crockpot. Speaking of crock-pots, how cute is this one?? Next, dump the yellow cake mix on top of the apples and then lastly put the stick of butter on top. THAT’S IT! Cook on low for about 4 hours until the top is golden brown.


This is what it looks like once it’s cooked. How freaking delicious does that look? I can practically smell it through the picture! Now you might want to dig right in, because there is nothing better than putting a heaping of ice cream on top and watching it melt!

    I would like to try this dump cake but 1 question do you put the lid on while it is cooking?

    • Dorothea

      And yes make with the lid on

    • Anonymous

      If you do not know the answer to that question, then you should not be cooking

      • Tabbatha

        if you can’t answer a question nicely maybe you shouldn’t be responding!
        Also I’m not afraid to leave my name.

  2. Olivia

    What size slow cooker do you have? looks smaller than mine (6 qt.), so I’d probably have to adjust ingredients/cook time.

    • Hannah

      Yes! In girl scouts we did this and a cherry version using chocolate cake mix

  4. Jeri

    Do you use the lid or not,
    Can I use spice cake with apples?
    Other fruit or any cake mix?

    • Dorothea

      I’ve made this a few times and with different fruits. Very good and easy. I am gluten free so I tried it with a gluten free cake mix and it was great. My family didn’t even know the difference.

  5. Colleen

    Can this be doubled safely?

  6. Claudine

    I made it like u said and thinkin my slow cooker is a bit larger then pic, cuz the middle where butter was did not brown like the other??

    • Dorothy

      I saw a similar recipe where she blended the cake mix with the butter (melted) and added another 1 TBs of water, to get the cake mix “wet” before putting it on top. It should be crumbly. I am going to try it that way tomorrow, myself.

  7. Rebecca

    Can this be made cooking on high?

    • CC

      Yes it can. You’ll want to reduce the cook time and be sure to watch it :)

  8. Billie

    I did this recipe and it burnt on one side, don’t know why.

    • CC

      Mmm…maybe it was cooking too long. I check mine every 20-30 mins to see how it’s cooking.

    • Gerry

      I just saw someone make a recipe in a crockpot and she took a square of foil and folded a couple of times, keeping it long, and put it against one side of crockpot to avoid over cooking, as she said in some crockpots there is an element that gets hot on the one side. You may want to try this and then spray foil with Pam before putting ingredients in.

  9. Irene Castillo

    Do you spray crockpot with Pam?

  10. Pattie

    Since it’s apple season, can you use fresh apples? Would you have the add some sort of liquid as pie filling has the hell. Love the idea! How about pumpkin pie filling?

  11. Kayce

    Question: the cake mix is going on top of the apples dry or completely mixed?

  12. Marilyn

    what size crockpot is used for the 3 ingredients apple spice cake

  13. Ronda V

    I want to make a double batch. Do I just double everything

  14. Julie

    how many servings and what size slow cooker?

    • angie

      Did you ever find out what size crockpot? I have 6Quart and wondering if that will cook the same?

  15. concerned mom

    I never saw an answer about doubling a recipe or using spice cake??

    • Todd

      The one I tried, it called for spice cake, and I used two cans of fruit because of the size of my cooker (5qt). One stick of butter. Four hours on low, was delish.

  18. Donna

    I have doubled twice the first didn’t not do well as that particular crock was tall. So I tried one of my other crock pots that is oval — glad to say it turned out perfect.

  19. Tiffany

    Making this as I type, just hit the four hour mark and the cake is totally uncooked still. Especially around the sides. I hope it turns out!!

  20. donna

    • Donna

      I tried the 4 qt the tall crock pot and it didn’t cook well but in the oval crock pot it was great

  21. Holly

    It’s in the crockpot now! Thank you very much for sharing. Can’t wait to taste it! :)

  22. Heather

    I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top of the apples before I covered with cake mix. It was delicious!!
