The Shady Porch: Slow Cooker Apple-Spice Dump Cake

Slow Cooker Apple-Spice Dump Cake


Lately, I have been using a lot of the apples from our harvest. I've shared my Slow Cooker Apple Crisp, and my Baked Apples. Today, I am sharing a super easy Slow Cooker Apple-Spice Dump Cake. Many folks make this cake using canned pie filling, which is good, I've done it myself but in this recipe I've used fresh apples not the pie filling and a spice cake mix rather than the usual yellow. I've also added my favorite pecan topping to make it extra special and to make the family extra happy too.
