Crockpot Apple Cobbler Recipe – Easy Dump Cake

We love dump cakes because they are absolutely mindless and require very little ingredients from the pantry. It’s the dessert you make when you don’t have much time or product on hand and… that’s me pretty much all the time. Hey, just being honest. 

An apple cobbler is THE dessert for Thanksgiving – at least in my family. Someone always brings one to the gathering. But HOW FUN would it be to bring a slow cooker apple cobbler instead? A LOT – believe me, I know. 

I know that a lot of families are nut-free. So, please know that you can absolutely omit the nuts that I included in the instructions below. We just love to add an extra crunch to the layers of this holiday dessert.

If you happen to have some on hand, USE THEM. You don’t need to add many things to a crockpot cake mix cobbler. So, to sprinkle a few nuts at the end won’t hurt. I promise. 

Ingredients For Crockpot Apple Cobbler 

  • 1 box of white or yellow cake mix
  • 40 ounces of apple pie filling (2 cans) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 7 tablespoons of unsalted butter (melted) 
  • 1/2 cup your favorite nut (walnut, pecan, almond – whatever you have on hand) 
  • Optional ice cream to make it ala mode! 

 How To Make This Apple Crumble

apple pie filling in slow cooker

Place your apple pie filling on the base of your slow cooker – both cans. Then top with your dry cake mix. Add in the whole bag. Do not mix. That’s the beauty of slow cooker dump cakes. You do not need to mix any of the wet and dry ingredients together. They are really simple. slow cooker apple crumble

After you’ve completed your first and second layer, you will want to add in your cinnamon and then mix just the dry layer together. Do not mix it with the wet layer. Just focus on the top layer to combine the cake mix with your cinnamon. Once this is finished, pour your melted butter evenly all over your mixture. Do NOT mix. 

The butter will absorb in and bake through once the crockpot does its magic. Your last and final step is your nut of choice. Of course, feel free to omit the nuts if you don’t want to add in this last step. 

When I add in my nuts, I cut them up in my hand before I drop them into the bowl. My mother DOES NOT DO THIS. She just likes to drop them in whole. That’s up to you. I give them a really rough “chop” using my fingers. Some go in whole, while others are torn apart – so to speak.

Cover your crockpot and cook on high for 3.5 hours. I know most recipes you will find will ask you to cook for 4 hours but I have found that at 4 hours, my recipe begins to burn. So, start with 3.5 hours and see where you are. I have a feeling that your recipe will be done. I doubt it’s just my crockpot that cooks through with such little time. 

If you want to cook on low, then I would start with 5 hours and check. If you need another 30 minutes, feel free to give yourself more time. Everything should be bubbling and brown.

We love to serve this crockpot cake mix cobbler with some ice cream! You don’t NEED the ice cream, but it is SUCH A GREAT combination that I highly suggest it. I saw that my friend just made this delicious raspberry coulis and I think it would go perfect with this recipe. Check it out!

It’s always great to have a few crockpot apple recipes on hand because during the Fall we usually go apple picking several times a season.

What If I Don’t Want To Use Apples For This Recipe? 

The beautiful thing about cooking is you can do whatever you’d like. Just swap out the apple pie filling with whatever canned version you’d like – whether that’s cherry or blueberry – and the recipe will remail the same.
