Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Dump cake works with other flavors of pie filling too! Try using cherry, blueberry, or raspberry on your next dump cake. 
  • Yellow cake mix is best for apple toffee dump cake, but you can use all different kinds! Try using a white or spice cake mix on your next dump cake. 
  • Serve this apple dump cake with ice cream or whipped cream.

Make ahead

The beauty of desserts is when you can make them ahead of time! You can easily make this apple dump cake in the morning and serve it that night. Just be sure to keep it wrapped until you are ready to serve.

I recommend heating up your piece, so it is nice and warm!

 

Storage

Fridge

You will want to store this dessert in an airtight container in the fridge. It will last for up to a week. 

 

Freezer

This cake does freeze so well! I love to cut it and store it in individual servings. To do this, cut the cake once it is cooled. On a cookie tray, place a piece of parchment paper, then take your individual pieces and put them on the tray so they aren’t touching. Place it in the freezer and let it freeze all the way through. Once frozen, place them all in an airtight storage container. There will last about 3 months. 

When you are ready for a tasty treat, pull it out of the freezer and warm it up in the microwave.
