Apple Pumpkin Dump Cake (gluten free)

. at . 3 comments

After you’ve tried all the pumpkin recipes, try this gratitude pumpkin next.

This year I brought a new dish to the Thanksgiving dessert table: Apple Pumpkin Dump Cake. I made it for the first time in October for a Senior luncheon. I made a few changes since then and now there is a fave holiday dessert at my home.

Ingredients for the Apple Layer

  • Spray cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter) to cook the apples
  • 5 medium sized Granny Smith Apples or McIntosh apples – peeled, cored, and sliced (5 cups) – I used a combination of both
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar – You can add more sugar as I don’t like my apples overly sweet
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

NOTE:  — Or use 2 (21-ounce) cans of apple pie filling and delete all the above ingredients except for the spray cooking oil.

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Layer

  • 1-15 ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk – can use heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs or 4 medium eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Ingredients for Topping

  • 1 box gluten-free yellow cake mix – you can obviously use a regular cake mix
  • 1 FULL cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter

DIRECTIONS . . .

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9”x13” pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter) in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Add apples, sugar, and cinnamon and stir to combine. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are semi-translucent. Spread into the bottom of the prepared 9”x13” pan.
  3. Whisk pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl. Pour on top of the apple layer.
  4. Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over the top of the pumpkin and apples.
  5. Top with pecans.
  6. Melt 1 cup butter and pour evenly over the top of the entire pan.
  7. Bake for 45-65 minutes until the center is set and it is golden brown around the edges.
  8. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Your Turn . . . Did you try a new dessert this Thanksgiving? Or do you only have the tried and loved recipes? . . . Have you had dump cake before? What is your fave flavour combination?
