OK, let's be honest. We've all had one of those awful moments known as a "Pinterest Fail" and this, my friends, was one of mine.
It was supposed to be simple. And good.
I thought it was right up my alley this night. Ivy loves anything with apples and I just wanted something sweet, so Apple Dump Cake it was.
The recipe and directions are about as easy as it gets.
-1 yellow cake mix
-1 stick of butter
-4 apples, sliced
I don't like crunchy apples, so I decided to soften them in a pan with a little cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top.
I sprayed a pan with Pam and poured the apples in the bottom.
Then, as directed, poured the DRY cake mix on top.
This is where I started to feel like it wasn't going to end well.
Next I melted a stick of butter and poured that on top of the dry cake mix.
The directions say to bake for 25-30 mins at 350.
As you can see, I left mine in longer. It didn't look done to me and smelled like pure butter....very unappetizing. I didn't even taste it. So sad.
Does anyone know what I did wrong? I even went back and looked up different Apple Dump Cake recipes and they're all pretty much the same.
