This is very quick and easy to make! The yellow cake mix is what gives this apple crisp its special flavor! Try it & see for yourself.

Great stuff! Instead of sugar, I used Equal and used three tbs. Also doubled the cinnamon. Used Black Twig apples from Julian, a mountain apple growing community above San Diego. Wow, is that good!

I believe the original recipe calls for a stick of butter which equals 1/2 cup.

taste was OK - nothing spectacular. Like many others I found that extra butter was needed on top. half way through baking I had to add more butter to moisten the dust balls of cake mix. I also had to bake it for more time than stated, even with slicing the apples thin. Next time instead of buying cake mix, I'll just save the money and go back to my grandmother's tried and true recipe.
