How German is this recipe? Not sure. But it goes great after a traditional German meal. This is one of the easy-to-make quick dessert recipes that comes from my friend, Penny, and has become a favourite of ours.

Apple Dump Cake

Let me see if I can describe this one. It's chewy and sweet. It reminds me of a candy bar, only nice and moist with the apples. Served with a good cup of coffee, it's a treat, for sure!

Penny's Apple Dump Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 can apple pie filling (with or without cinnamon)
  • 1 13-ounce can crushed pineapple
  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts or sliced almonds

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 325° F.
  • Grease or spray with non-stick cooking spray a 13 X 9 pan.
  • Dump apple pie filling into pan. Spread evenly on bottom.
  • Dump pineapple evenly over the pie filling layer.
  • Sprinkle dry yellow cake mix evenly over the pineapple layer.
  • Pour melted butter over the yellow cake mix layer.
  • Sprinkle coconut and nuts on top.
  • Bake for about one hour, until nicely browned.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

I really like cinnamon, pineapple, and coconut. It's all in this cake, including the apples. My husband really only likes the apples. Cinnamon, pineapple, and coconut aren't on his "like" list.

However, Penny's cake looked delicious: I made it anyway. It was so easy. I just dumped everything into the pan, baked it. Then, I offered my hubby a little bit to try. He wanted more. And more. And more! His comment? "It's like eating peanuts. Can't stop with just one bite!"

Guess what's now stocking my cupboard? Yep, the ingredients for this Apple Cake!
