This is similar to another recipe on this site which DOES use yellow cake mix -- go figure; wherever you read reviews someone always likes it the other way! Anyway I had used the OTHER recipe and substituted spice cake mix and used 2 cans of apples (other recipe called for one but was DEFINITELY not enough). Actually the other recipe turned into THIS recipe when I made it a second time including the mix of spices. In addition rather than using butter on the top when the cake cooled I frosted it with Dulce de Leche (caramel) frosting and BOY what that ever good! That cake disappeared in seconds! This cake is definitely for someone with a sweet tooth who likes fall/spice flavors and a wet cake rather than dry and fluffy. I thought it was awesome and would have eaten the whole cake myself if I could! It's absolutely one of the easiest cakes you can make it comes out great it tastes spectacular and also goes a long way. I can see making the chocolate version with canned cherry filling as suggested by another reviewer. Try this recipe -- you'll love it! And thanks for the submission!
Awesome...great fall dessert. I also added golden raisins and it was great! NOTE: With all dump cakes..they ALWAYS turn out if you MELT the butter first and then pour it over the cake mix. The melted butter then aborbs the cake mix and you won't have any dry cake mix...it will work everytime...I use about 1.5 sticks of butter and it always turns out perfect...serve with fresh whipped cream with a tsp of vanilla mixed in!
I made this today only instead of using two cans of apple pie filling I peeled and sliced four Granny Smith apples and tossed them into the pie filling while I made up a "sauce" in a saucepan on the stove. I added the spices to 1 1/4 c. water two tbsp. cornstarch a little lemon juice and a half cup of sugar. Once that thickened I added it to the pie filling and apples. I haven't tried it yet but it smells wonderful. TIP: It's best if you cut the butter/margerine into thin slices and layer them on top of the dry cake mix/nuts. Makes for a better crust.
I definately preferred the original dump cakes compared to this one. I definately thought that there were way too many spices in the taste too much allspice nutmeg or something about it that wasn't quite right. I might make again without the allspice and nutmeg or even with a different cake mix. But it was really easy and quick.
I MADE THIS RECIPE FOR MY COUSIN'S GRADUTION PARTY AND EVERONE LOVE IT! IT WAS GONE IN 5 SECONDS....THE CAKE THAT WAS BROUGHT TO HIM WAS NEVER CUT!THIS RECIPE IS GREAT ESPECIALLY SERVED WITH HOMEMADE VANILLA ICE CREAM....
I made last night using a cinnamon-struessal cake mix. I eliminated the spices and used the struesal topping instead. Replaced 1 can of pie filling with 4 peeled and sliced honey crisp apples and made the 'sauce' a reviewer below talked about but used 1 c. water and 1/4 cup bourbon. Baked 1 hour and this was THE BEST. Everyone loved it including my mother-in-law who can be rather picky. Easy and quick to make!
