GF Betty Crocker Apple Pie Dump Cake


1 box of favorite GF yellow cake mix

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) or more to taste

1/2 cup dairy free butter substitute, cut into small pieces
( I used Earth Balance shortening sticks)


Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. 

Pour the apple pie filling in the pan. 

Sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the apple pie filling. 

Sprinkle nuts on top.

Dot the cake mix with the shortening. (Do not mix together.)

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until done.

Cook's Notes:
*I really liked this dessert, but my crew gave it a 50/50 split on liking it.  The loved the filling but not the topping.  Hubby and I both liked the topping.  I am wondering if they didn't like the cake mix itself.  Next time I am going to try the topping with a different brand of cake mix, probably Gluten Free Pantry.  
* I have also seen this done with a sugar cookie dough topping.  You can make up a batch of GFsugar cookies and drop heapings of dough on top of the pie filling and bake.
