dump cake (4 ingredients)

Caramel Apple Dump Cake



  • 1 butter cake mix
  • 1 large can apple pie filling
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • course salt (optional for topping)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 baking pan.
  • “Dump” all your cake ingredients together in a bowl and mix until blended and place in oven.
  • Bake cake for 30-35 minutes, pull out when done and let cool.
  • While cooling, start making your icing. Combine milk, butter, and sugar in a saucepan and heat until boiling. Let boil 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Once boiling, add butterscotch chips and continue to stir until melted.
  • Note: I had a hard time getting all the butterscotch chips to melt, so I actually ran my topping through a strainer to catch any of the unmelted chips. Then I poured the entire hot mixture over my cake.
  • Optional: If you want a salted caramel apple dump cake, lightly sprinkle course salt over top of the cake once cool for a nice salted flavoring to compliment the sweetness.
