We’ve found the most deliciously easy way to put a zero-effort spin on pecan pie. This dump dessert with a luscious, gooey, pecan pie-inspired filling and a crisp cake mix topping comes together in virtually no time but has tons of fall flavor. Adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top is extra indulgent—but a very good idea.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Dump cakes are sometimes difficult to determine doneness. It’s normal to see some wet spots, some dry cake mix and a crisp-like texture on top. Be sure pecan mixture is gently bubbling around edges of pan.
  • tip 2
    No ice cream? Try sweetened whipped cream!
