Cooking With Kids

Yummy Apple Crumb Treat
(Apple Dump Cake)
Okay this is a Dump Cake. I know, I know don't try to make it sound like something that it's not. My husband just thinks "Dump Cake" doesn't sound too appetizing. His exact words were "I'm not eating any thing called DUMP CAKE". So we came up with a new and improved name.
All that being said, this is a great activity for kids. My daughter is 9 and really didn't need any help. She even opened the canned apples.
2 cans of apple pie filling
1 yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter
Spread Apple pie filling in a 9x13 inch pan
Cover filling with yellow cake mix
Drizzle melted butter over cake mix
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes
Serve with whipped topping or ice cream (or both)
Fancy that, my baby girl is cooking!!!

Oh wow, apple dump cake!? That's a new dumpcake recipe for me!!!

You just reminded me of one we used to make when we were little which consisted of a dry angel food cake mix and a can of cherry pie filling. Bummer that I can't remember what else went on it. Maybe butter??

We will totally be trying this apple one out this summer!!!!
p.s. Thanks for visiting my blog :) It's always great to meet new bloggers to visit :)

Your pictures didn't show up for me. :( The instructions are great though, so perhaps I can pull this off anyway. Sounds yummy! My 8 year old loves to cook, perhaps she would do this one on her own!

By the way, Tag - you're it. Stop by my blog for details.
