This week has been a tough one. Not really sure why. Just some weeks are like that. When it is finally over and Friday rolls around I like to treat myself with something special. We all need a little reward for “making it” sometimes. This week my reward is this Crockpot Apple Dump Cake and a scoop of Homemade Ice Cream.
This recipe is so easy! It is literally just a couple cans of pie filling, a cake mix, cinnamon and a stick of butter. Hey….I didn’t say it was low calorie. Plus, I decided to add some pecans just because.
It is called a dump cake because you just dump everything in your crockpot. I dumped in the apple pie filling. Then mixed the cake mix, cinnamon, pecans, and melted butter in a bowl. Once it is mixed crumble it over the top of the pie filling. Cook on high for 2 hours.
After 2 hours this bubbling yumminess greeted me when I lifted the lid.
Scoop and serve while warm.
Add a scoop of ice cream for an added bonus. JUST PERFECTION!
