Spiced Apple, Pear and Pecan Dump Cake

I just discovered dump cake recipes and this is the first that I have tried! So easy, so fast, so delicious! Since these make me happy, I decided to pair it with a “dumped” song to pick up anyone going through a broken heart… I hope it passes and you are happy again – this cake might help, a little?

Music Selection: Joan Osborne – What Becomes of the Broken Hearted


2 large apples (granny smith), peeled, cored and diced

2 large pears, peeled, cored and diced

2 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp brown sugar

2 tsp ground cinnamon or English mixed (pudding) spice

1 cup yellow cake mix

½ cup butter, cold and cut into small cubes

6 Tbsp chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Butter 4 individual size ramekins that are ovenproof.

In large skillet, melt butter and saute the apples and pears for about 5 minutes. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Saute for another 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Evenly distribute the fruit in each ramekin.

On each, evenly put ¼ cup yellow cake mix. Then sprinkle on 1/8 cup of the butter cubes on each. Top with chopped pecans.

Bake in oven for 30 minutes.

Serve with whipping cream or ice cream!
