Apple Pie Cake-Mix Cake

Marya “Marta” Krause

"My mum taught me this recipe when I was just learning to bake, and I still use it for parties as it is a crowd-pleaser. Having only 3 ingredients it is super quick and easy to make. A dollop of vanilla ice cream tops it very well."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pour pie filling into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over apple pie filling and top with melted butter.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the top starts to turn brown, about 40 minutes. Cool cake 15 minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Any pie filling works great with this recipe.
  • I've found that when serving, it is easier to use a large serving spoon to dollop out a spoonful rather than try and cut it like a cake (the pie filling is NOT a solid base, thus the cut is lost in the cake mix topping).
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Used blueberry pie filling . Made the cake mix as directed. It was a hit.

I cooked this in my crock pot since the weather is so hot this summer. It can cook 4 hours on low or 2 on high. I do use a stick of melted butter and this time I threw some pecans on top.

Everyone loves it. I added pecans on top and Drizzle butter, cinnamon and sugar over pecans.

This is a super easy recipe also we modify it to use in the Dutch oven by adding a can of Mt Dew or Ski. If I make the normal recipe I will put extra butter in and I also stir it about ten minu...
