We've made the original dump cake - the one with cherry pie filling - and loved it. My husband makes it to take when we have parties or family get togethers. He likes the praise he gets. When I told him about this recipe, he had to try it. We didn't have the apple pie filling, but we had frozen winesap apples. The apple dump cake turned out great. He's so impressed with his baking skills. Thanks for posting the recipe. Diana
