Tempting Tuesdays ~ Apple Pie Cake

Sometimes you just need a dash of an American favorite, Apple Pie. Oh, but all the work! This recipe from good old Betty Crocker takes the hassle out of making a pie crust by substituting your favorite yellow cake mix. Grabbing a peeler and going to town on a half a dozen apples is the hardest part of the recipe. What a great reward you'll have when you're done!


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cut into small pieces

Apple Mixture
6 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 box yellow cake mix (follow instructions on box to make your batter)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13x9-inch pan with baking spray.

For topping, mix together brown sugar, flour, and salt. With a fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.

In another bowl, gently stir apple mixture ingredients together then set aside.

In a large bowl, mix your cake mix according to box instructions. Pour batter into pan.

Layer apple mixture evenly over the cake batter.

Sprinkle topping evenly over the top.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting, approximately 30 minutes.
Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar if you wish.

Best served warm for breakfast, dessert, or even a midnight snack.
