Accessory Needed For Ninja Foodi  Apple Dump Cake 

For this dump cake, I have cooked it in a 9″ Pie Tin. You can also make the dump cake directly in your cooking pot.  Please refer to the cooking directions for my Ninja Foodi Lemon Dump Cake, which was cooked directly in the cooking pot.

I find that using the pie tin helps make a prettier appearance if you are serving up guests. But, if it is just us our family, I sometimes go the pot route, it just depends. 

What Are The Ingredients In A Dump Cake 

For this specific recipe, all that is needed is a cake mix, apple pie filling, and butter. I am totally for real on how easy it is to assemble, and you would be amazed at how decadent it turns out when all it needs is 3 ingredients. 

What Is Dump Cake 

If you are new to the world of dump cakes, they are so easy. I like to call it the lazy dessert recipe we all dream about. You literally dump ingredients together, turn on the oven or in this case, your Ninja Foodi and cook. Then pull out and you have a bottom layer of filling, topped with tender and light cake. 

What Is the Difference Between A Dump Cake and Cobbler 

Both are very similar, and I could see how some would ask is there a difference between a cobbler and a dump cake recipe. They both have a fruit filling that is topped with a cake-like or streusel topping. Generally, cobblers go for a streusel topping that has brown sugar, flour, and oats, whereas a dump cake is a cake mix. 

As you can see not much effort goes into making an apple dump cake! But I will warn you, they are so addictive, and once you start making dump cakes, you will never look back!

    1. You can make a sling by folding a sheet of about 14″ long or so aluminum foil. Fold it over long ways to make a reduce the width to about 2″. Lay that underneath your pan and tuck out of the way for pressure cooking. This will make it so much easier to remove your pan.
