Step by Step Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Next, spread apple filling in an even layer in the prepared baking pan. It doesn't have to be perfect, just smooth it out as much as possible.
Open the cake mix and sprinkle the dry cake mix over top of the apple mixture.
Pour the melted butter over the dry cake mix. Lift up the baking dish and carefully tilt it back and forth to spread out the melted butter. Don't worry if there are a few patches of dry cake mix still showing, these will cook during the baking time.
Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
Bake in 350°F oven for 50 to 55 minutes. The pie filling should be bubbling over at the edges.
Cool for a few minutes, then serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. A drizzle of caramel sauce is also a nice touch if you like things sweet!
Store cooled leftover apple dump cake in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to four days.
