Apple - Cinnamon Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Phyllis Ferguson

Super fast cake to make - and very delicious! The ingredients seem odd because there is no oil but it makes a wonderful cake. We really prefer it made in the loaf pans for a breakfast cake.

I am so surprised this has not been reviewed before! I've made this cake often in the past and your recipe encouraged me to make it again. It is a great moist cake. I used a low-sugar apple pie filling and an egg substitute to reduce some of the calories. I absolutely love the cinnamon sugar ribbon inside and it as a topping - it takes this cake over the top. Betty Crocker did well and so did you by posting! Made for the Bargain Basement tag game in Cooking Games with Friends forum.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat dry cake mix, pie filling, and eggs in large bowl on low for 2 minutes.
  3. Spread half of batter in prepared pan (2 loaf pans for a breakfast cake, or a 9x13- I prefer the 2 loaf pans).
  4. Mix sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle half of the mixture over the batter in the pan.
  5. Spread remaining batter in the pan; sprinkle with remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minues or until done.
  7. I use a few tablespoons of canned vanilla frosting- heat it in the microwave a few seconds and drizzle over the top of the cake.
  8. This is a great cake- and so easy to make!
