As soon as the kids go back to school my body and mind move to fall. I am 100% ready for all the comfort foods, and this Crockpot Apple Dump Cake is perfect! I don’t have much time to get all the things done, but I still crave that “fall food”.
crock pot apple cobbler with cake mix
With just 3 ingredients, and made in a crock pot, this dessert could not be simpler. Bonus: you do not sacrifice taste for ease of prep! I love these recipes that take a cake mix to the next level. It is so much easier than measuring out all the ingredients that one cake mix can provide for you!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS CROCK POT COBBLER RECIPE:
- apple pie filling
- cake mix
- vanilla gelato
DIRECTIONS TO MAKE THIS CROCK POT COBBLER RECIPE:
- Grease crock pot or use one a crock pot liner.
- Add apple pie filling, cake mix and sticks of butter.
- Set crock pot on ……
- Scoop out of crock pot and top with a scoop of vanilla gelato!
I like to add the apples first so the cake mix doesn’t just stick to the bottom and it all gets incorporated. You can give the cake mix and the apples a quick stir when you add it all in and then toss the butter in on top! Set the crock pot to low and don’t think about it until after dinner.
This is also the perfect dessert for doing some tailgating or homegating (having a football party at someone’s house). Sometimes those outdoor fall parties can get a bit chilly, and this is the perfect thing to warm you up and impress the other party goers!
