Tips for Baking and Serving
- The most important tip is to make sure to spread out the cake mix so there are not large mounds on top of the apples.
- Sometimes, no matter how well you think you’ve distributed the cake mix, you’ll see clumps starting to form.
- If you notice clumps, take a fork and break up any clumps, then return the cake to the oven to continue baking.
- You can also try making this apple dump cake using a spice cake mix!
- This easy recipe is delicious warm from the oven but you may want it to cool down just a bit so you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or freshly made whipped cream.
