Let me introduce you to Apple Dump Cake a la Mode.  You aren’t going to believe how easy this recipe is!  You just mix it, bake it, and top it with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.  Voila! Sometimes don’t you just want a yummy dessert without having to work for it?  I know I do and today we had one that I love.  It is ridiculously easy – 4 ingredients.  Minimal prep time.  Sounds great, right?

You know that kind of heavenly combination when you put a piece of warm apple crisp or warm apple pie with a scoop of ice cream on top into your mouth?  The warm apples with the cold ice cream?  Oh yeah.



2  20 ounce cans of apple pie filling

1/3 c butter (stick form works best)

1 box yellow cake mix

vanilla ice cream (or whatever flavor you want your a la mode to be!)


  • Spray a 9 x 13 ” baking pan with cooking spray, then spread the contents of both cans of apple pie filling in to the bottom of the baking pan.

  • Sprinkle the dry contents of one package of yellow cake mix (unprepared) over the top of the apple pie filling.


  • Cut the butter into thin slices and place the pieces of butter all across the top of the cake mix, with some space between each slice of butter (see picture below).

I do not comment, however I looked at a ton of comments on this page Apple Dump Cake a la Mode - Life Between the Kitchen and the Coop. I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or do a few of the remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Ugh...thanks for the head's up...looks like the spam-bots got through on that one. I went in and cleaned that up. All of my "follow me" links are on the upper left hand sidebar---that should make it easy for you to follow. :) Have a great day!
