"Has been one of our favorites for many years! I use 2 CANS pie filling, we like blueberry or apple. Sprinkle each can layer generously with cinnamon, then top with the cake mix/butter mixture, then with either walnuts or pecans. Cook in 3-1/2 Qt slow cooker for 3 hours on Low. easy and very tasty! -Lori in WI"

"This was way to sweet (and I like sweet). Next time I will use the unsweetened pie filling and either use 2 cans of filling or reduce cake mix to 1/2. I also think the oven would to a better job than the slow cooker."

"I have varied tastes to provide for, so I used two different kinds of pie filling. I made a "pan divider" out of folded tin foil to split my 9 x 13" pan in half. I poured a can of blueberry on one side, and a can of cherry pie filling on the other. After I added my cake mix crumbs, I removed the divider and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Everyone's happy! It IS sweet, but my husband has a (very) sweet tooth - and he liked it."

"Made the recipe in a 3 quart with 2 cans of filling, cooked almost 3 hours but still looked "raw". Next time I will make it with enough time to use a backup."

"This is a five star recipe for sure....easy to make, easy to take along, taste wonderful to young and old alike. I have enjoyed it for years, and have never been disapointed with the results. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to guild the lilly."

"slow cooker dump cake is a great idea, however the recipe needs revision. Use a 3 quart slow cooker and 2 cans of pie filling for 1 standard cake mix and 1 stick of butter. Cherry pie filling and chocolate fudge cake are our favorite."

"I made this many times after it was published in 1999. The original recipe did not suggest a 1 1/2 qt slow cooker so I cooked it in a 3 qt. Very good recipe!"

"Update to my review-Yes I would also use 2 cans pie filing.

I also tried making a "savory" topping by combining half a box of cake mix with an equal amount of baking biscuit mix. We like this version even better since it reduces the sweetness."
