      Prepared this for Crafty Lady 13, to share her loss of beloved pet, Maxx. I had a jar of lemon curd type gel which I had purchased at Lenox a good while ago, and used a Duncan Hines Golden Butter cake mix. Certainly a snap to put together, but found some un-incorporated dry mix on top after baking. Next time -- and I WILL do this again, will be sure that all of cake mix is evenly distributed over filling, and butter more evenly distributed. All that said -- it was very tasty, and DH had an extra helping before he went to bed ! So sorry about your loss -- pets are never far from our hearts !

      A quick and easy and delicious dessert. 5 minutes prep and it's in the oven. I used a gluten-free cake mix (Basco brand Golden Buttercake Mix 470 grams) and 125 grams of butter. Not knowing if the dump style cake would work with the gluten-free mix, I mixed the cake mix and melted buter together and spread over the top of the pie apples. Served with vanilla ice-cream and this cake was a hit with my whole family. Reviewed for September Recipe Swap in the Aus/NZ Forum. Photos being posted
