Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Caramel Apple Dump Cake

As you may...or may not know, IT Guy is a huge apple fan. 
Me? Not so much. It’s okay...just not my favorite. If we ever 
split a dessert and I let (HA!) him choose, he will almost always pick apple something. I may have a bite or two but that’s it. Hey...maybe that’s why he chooses apple!! It just now dawned 
on me that THAT might be his little scheme!! He gets the dessert all to himself if he picks apple! I’ll have to remedy this little situation next time. Anyway, when I made this quick and easy dessert, he was ALL over it! Oh my...he was in apple heaven. 
I thought it was pretty good, too...considering it’s not my first choice. You should try it to see if it might work its way into 
your dessert rotation. I bet it will!

Caramel Apple Dump Cake
1 yellow cake mix ~ dry
2 cans apple pie filling
1 11-ounce bag caramel baking bits (found in the baking aisle)
1 1/2 sticks butter ~ melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Empty both cans of the apple pie filling into the prepared pan.
Sprinkle the caramel bits over the apples.
Spread the DRY cake over the top of the apples and caramel bits then drizzle with the melted butter.
Bake for 45 minutes or until lightly brown and done.
Cool and serve with vanilla ice cream.
*Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the apple pie filling for extra yumminess. And add about a cup of chopped pecans with the caramel bits for a fun crunch!

Here are the things you need. I show 
only 1 stick of butter...but you really need 1 1/2 sticks.

Throw the apples in a 
sprayed baking dish.

Sprinkle on the caramel bits. Add about 
1 cup of chopped pecans if you want.

Spread the DRY cake 
mix over the top.

Drizzle with the melted butter and bake!

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
