Two-ingredient apple cake

March 29, 2012


I love the idea of taking box cake mix and making it into something special by adding your own ingredients. I recently shared my pineapple angel food cake recipe. Here’s another tasty way to use angel food cake mix!

1 box angel food cake mix
1 can apple pie filling (I used no sugar added pie filling)

Combine pie filling and cake mix. At first, you won’t think there’s going to be enough liquid in the pie filling to incorporate all of the cake mix, but trust me, there is. Just keep stirring and eventually you’ll have a lovely cake batter. Pour into a greased 9×13″ pan and bake at 350 degrees F. Mine was ready after 20 minutes, but depending on the size of your pan, whether you use a glass or metal pan, and your oven, it may take up to 35 minutes. I suggest checking the cake after 20 minutes by inserting a toothpick in the middle. If it doesn't come out clean, bake another 5 minutes and check again, until the cake is light golden brown and passes the toothpick test.

I didn’t make any frosting this time, but this cake would be delicious with my fluffy frosting. You could also use any type of pie filling. Cherry, blueberry, and peach would all be super yummy!

I made this cake and baked it for 20 minutes as directed in recipe. After cooling, I attempted to cut it into pieces and found that most of the cake mix was still not baked. I returned it to the oven for another 20 minutes to finish baking. Your recipe should be corrected to state to bake it for 35-40 minutes.
