1950's Vintage Apple Dump Cake Recipe

I am all for simple..simple recipes that is. Dump cakes became popular during the 1950's. It truly amazes me how the women of the 1950's would come up with these wonderful ideas. After World War II boxed cake mixes became available to the delight of housewives everywhere as well as canned food.
Dump cakes are simply 2 or 3 ingredients. I am sharing this wonderful Apple Dump Cake recipe. My husband and children love it. I serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. PLUS..there is very little mess to clean up as well. No mixing bowl. I can live with that.
