So rich so fattening so good. But you MUST make sure all the cake mix is covered with the melted butter. I use 1/2 cup instead of 1/4. You can also use cherrie pie filling blueberry peach and raspberry. They all are delightful. Read More

This was one of those moments the family will be laughing about years from now when they want to tease mom.. "remember that awful dessert that ended up in the trash!?!" After following the directions I ended up with gobs of dry cake mix on top. I figured I could remedy this easy enough by spooning off all the dry stuff. They we tried eating it. The cake mix that had gotten moist was a gooey mess. The overall taste was SOOOOO rich and sweet that it was just awful. Since then I've read the comments and see that adding more butter would have helped with the dry mix on top. But what about the gooey part? Did it need to bake longer? There wasn't any indication as to how well done it should look before removing it from the oven. Even if I baked it longer it would still be way to sweet and rich. This experiment ended up in the trash. Read More

I have made many variations of this recipe, but never with apples...DELICIOUS. At my 6 year old's request, we used Duncan Hines Caramel cake mix, and it was a sensational combination!!! Read More

I make a recipe that is the same concept as this one except I use 2 large cans of peaches with lite syrup. The syrup from the peaches bubbles through the cake mix therefore mixing with the butter which forms a crust instead of just powder on top. I think if the pie filling had more liquid or juice it would help. I will give it a try next time. Also cinnamon can be sprinkled over the top for extra flavor and I always serve my warm with vanilla ice cream! Read More

With a little bit of tweaking this is wonderful! I simply used more butter. Enough to almost completely cover the top of the cake mix. I stirred the mix around a little to ensure most of the cake powder was covered in butter. I think sprinkled a little water on top to help absorb more of the cake mix. I cooked for about 45 minutes and then served warm. It was very very popular. Read More

Make the cake mix then you won't need as much melted butter mixed in the apple pie filling. Add: more cinnamon fresh grated nutmeg. If you have never used fresh grated nutmeg you certainly must it is a completely different taste you use more than store bought ground nutmeg. Spices are old to start with & should be thrown away after a year. They loose their flavor that fast. Not herbs. From an expert. To a housewife they taste the same for years not so. Read More
