This 3-ingredient slow cooker apple dump cake is yet another super easy dessert that tastes absolutely amazing. It’s perfect if you need to make a dessert fast and only have very limited ingredients.
This cake cooks out to have lovely tender bits of apple throughout it. It’s incredibly simple as you only need to dump just 3 ingredients into the slow cooker. Much like the delightful apple crisp this is best served straight out of your slow cooker or crock pot.
You can eat this apple dump cake just by itself or you can take it to the next level by adding some ice cream, cream or hot custard. They’re all pretty good additions but personally I prefer to have this delicious slow cooked dessert with that incredible creamy vanilla bean ice cream.
As I mention in the cooking tips towards the bottom of this page you’re able to add some more flavour by adding some nutmeg and cinnamon to the apple. This will result in a different but tasty spiced apple dump cake.
Make sure you keep any leftovers as they reheat perfectly for a tasty cooked breakfast or dessert the next day. Simply store them covered in either the fridge or freezer. If you’re storing in the fridge it should last for about a week before needing to be thrown out.
You can get apple pie filling at your local supermarket but you can also find it online at places such as Amazon. The same can be said with yellow cake mix which is usually available at the supermarket or online.

The butter can be melted instead of just cubed. Just make sure you evenly drizzle it over the top of the cake mix.
Fresh apples can be used instead of tinned however you may need to cook it for longer so the apples are tender by the time it’s finished cooking.
