Apple Cranberry Dump Cake Cobbler

December 1, 2013Teresa

Apple Cranberry Dump Cake Cobbler is another marvelous dump cake recipe I’m sure you’ll love! Pie filling made with apples and cranberries, coconut, walnuts, butter recipe cake mix and butter is about all you need to make this luscious dessert. I had this cobbler ready for the oven in 5 minutes! And the taste? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! If you enjoy apples and cranberries you will love this combination of fruit and nuts. I made a large batch of this recipe for some friends who were recently bereaved and then a small dish for us to sample. Yes, our sample got gobbled up really quickly.

Many of our local grocery stores  have stocked up on many wonderful combinations of Lucky Leaf pie fillings for the holidays. I’m talking about flavors and combinations I’ve never seen before. I saw an Apple-Cranberry combination and snapped up four cans before they could all be snatched up by others! I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the pie filling at first, but then it dawned on me to make a delicious dump cake cobbler with them. Yes, yes, yes, this is a gold medal recipe! Apple Cranberry Dump Cake Cobbler turned out with excellent taste, texture, and appearance.

This recipe is great hot out of the oven and served with ice cream or whipped cream. I drizzled caramel sauce over top of mine, but this dessert is rich and sweet enough without any other topping. If you’re looking for a quick and easy yet festive, holiday dessert, than consider this delicious recipe. You can’t go wrong with a dessert that only takes 5 minutes to make and only requires 5 ingredients!

Here’s what I did.

I found four cans of Apple Cranberry pie filling from Lucky Leaf. An added bonus is there is NO high fructose corn syrup in this pie filling. Yay!

Spray a 9×13″ glass baking dish with cooking spray. Pour pie filling into pan. (The large foil pan was made for some friends. I pulled out a little bit of the pie filling and put it in a really small small dish so we could sample some of this great dessert, too.)

    i make this and it’s very good! but it is very sweet due to the canned pie filling and the cake mix and it’s also salty due to the salted butter and the two sticks of butter make it very rich. if you like a heavy dose of sweet and salty this will do it for you.

    if you like a lighter touch of sweet/salt/fat, here are some substitutions which will yield a still delicious dessert:

    1 can of apple pie filling
    1 can of whole berry cranberry sauce
    1 cup of real cranberries

    1 box Duncan Hines butter recipe yellow cake mix
    ½ cup Diamond finely chopped walnuts
    1 stick of unsalted butter (melted)

    Directions:
    Boil cranberries until skin cracks then rinse in cold water
    Combine pie filling, cranberry sauce, and cranberries
    Pour into greased 9/13 pan

    Combine the cake mix and the walnuts
    Slowly mix the melted butter into the cake/walnut mix until it resembles coarse crumbs

    Pour the cake mix/walnut/butter crumble on top of the pie filling.

    Wish you would have used real cranberries and real apples not that goumpy canned stuff!

      I bet that would have been amazing, Cheryl! One of these days I’ll have to try it. Thanks for stopping by.

      Well the point of this is to be a “quick cobbler”. If you want a real cobbler it’s going to take more time. Then you can use real fruits and make the crumble topping from scratch also. For those in a hurry this produces a very good dessert that’s always been well received at any party I take it to during the holidays.
