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!
