A shocked Dundee side were two down after 15 minutes at Somerset Park and that was despite forcing seven corners in the first 10 minutes.
Ayr opened the scoring against the run of play when Bowman found Laurent Djaffo, who slotted the ball through a crowded penalty area into the net.
Ayr skipper lain Ferguson then headed a second from a Donowa corner.
Dundee, however, hit back, and Brian Irvine netted from a Maddison free-kick.
Dundee pressed forward, and were rewarded for their efforts with James Grady squaring the match in the 26th minute.
Steve McCormick then got his first for Dundee. Iain Anderson rammed a fine left-foot shot against the foot of the post and the Dark Bluest new signing moved in to blast home the loose rebound, much to the delight of Dundee's travelling supporters.
Dundee opened the second half with Annand replacing McCormick, but it was Ayr who threatened first when Smith went down in the box. However, the home side's penalty claims were waved away.
Six minutes into the second half, Grady bundled the ball home for Dundee's fourth, with Ayr's John Traynor helping the ball over the line.
Jim Mcinally then came close with long-range shot that went just wide. Ayr's Jim Dick, who had been booked in the first half, was sent off in the 61st minute. The Dens Parkers pushed forward again and scored with a well-worked move.
Adamczuk crossed in a lovely ball from wide on the right and Man-of-the-Match Grady was in good position to nod home his side's fifth and, at the same time, seal his hat-trick.
Dundee Douglas; Smith. Maddison, Adamczuk. Irvine, Rodgers, Anderson, Kelly. McCormick (Annand
