This looks so delicious. It's like a combination of all the best fall desserts!

I loved this dump cake. I reminded me of something my mom used to make.

This cake definitely tastes like fall. The texture of the cake was creamy, thanks to the delicious pumpkin filling, and the nutty apple topping was the perfect complement. You can't beat how easy it is to make either!

This dump cake was just what I wanted a warm, pumpkin dessert. The topping was a little too sugary for me, but I liked the crunchy chopped nuts on top. The pumpkin filling was excellent, and so simple to make!

I would have liked for there to be more apples in this cake, but other than that it was awesome. The cake was more custard than cake, which I loved.

The topping on this cake was amazing! I wasn't a huge fan of the apple chunks...maybe I'd shred them next time!

This cake really does taste like pumpkin, and the apples add a bit of change in texture, which is nice.

This was delicious! The middle was nice and creamy while the top had a nice satisfying crunch. I would definitely eat this again!

Amazing! Tastes like all of the delicious flavors of fall. I love the variety of texture.
