I came up with this recipe last Saturday when I needed to bake something to bring to our coffee hour after church service. I was short on time, but this dessert is not short on taste. I took home an empty pan with many people wanting the recipe. So I thought I’d share it here.
French Apple Dump Cake Recipe

3 Tablespoons homemade cake mix
Homemade Cake Mix
1 and 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Pour apple pie filling in the bottom of 9×13 pan. Blend 2 tablespoons butter, eggs, and 3 tablespoons of homemade white cake mix in blender for 15 seconds. Pour over top of pie filling. Don’t stir. Sprinkle homemade cake mix on top of egg and apple pie filling. Toss pecans on top. Chop 3 tablespoons of cold butter and layer on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Serve!
