Fall Apple Recipe Round-Up – Slow Cooker Apple Dump Cake {Allergy-Friendly}

BusyBeeKate-AppleRecipeRoundUpAppleDumpCakeThis recipe wasn’t originally on my 10 apple recipe round-up that I am doing but I saw it and just had to include it and decided to make it in place of the Dutch Apple Cake.  

We were busy running around this weekend getting errands done so I wanted a simple dessert for our Saturday movie night evening that wouldn’t take a lot of prep work.  

I honestly was a getting a bit ‘tired’ of apple crisps {I cannot believe I just admitted that} and started searching some yummy cake recipes.  I came across this recipe using apples and decided to give it a try.

As you can see the dessert looks yummy and hit the spot with a dollop of our favorite dairy-free ice cream, I would give it a 3.5 out of 5.  

It was very easy to make which was the biggest bonus, but I would say it was a sort of a strange mix of the apples and vanilla cake on top.  While we all enjoyed it I think I am a bigger fan of the slow cooker granola crumble instead.

Next week I’ll be featuring a couple more apple recipes so be sure to stop back!  


I’d love to know if you’ve ever made something like this and how you liked it?  BusyBeeKate-AppleRecipeRoundUpAppleDumpCake2
