I made this for a family get together to meet my sister's new boyfriend. I used a spice cake mix with it and I used a brown sugar glaze on top. It was yummy! I also added about 1/4 tsp of ginger and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon to the apple pie filling. It was very good. This works well and I thank you for sharing it!

After making as written, I made again. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the apple filling along with a TB of fresh lemon juice and the zest of half a lemon. I mixed 1/2c brown sugar with 1/2tsp of cinnamon and topped the cake before baking. For me, here in Maine, the just plain apple pie filling doesn't taste like an apple pie.

I love this cake. It is so easy and tasty. We get together with friends for dinner about once a week and I have made this a couple of times and they love it also. I don't use the glaze, we don't like it too sweet. We have it with whipped cream (from a can) and it is great. I have made this as written, and I have made it with white cake mix/blueberry pie filling, spice cake mix/apple pie filling, wpice cake mix with peach pie filling, and chocolate cake mix/cherry pie filling. It has turned out great every time. When I made this last Christmas for our holiday gathering everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. I am so glad that I can access my 'zaar account from anywhere and could print them copies. Thanks for posting this recipe

Made this for dinner at the assisted living facility for the elderly where I cook---everyone really enjoyed it. I had to use a Butter Recipe White Cake Mix as that was all we had, but it turned out great. Tasted a bit like an apple danish! So moist and nice. Thanks for posting this recipe.

My step-daughter and I worked on this together. It was very easy and an interesting way to spiff up boxed cake mix. When your family demolishes it, you know it is good. Thanks Andeey, I enjoyed trying your recipes.

This was very easy to make. I found it a bit bland, although the office scarfed it up. I did not use the glaze, as I felt it would be too sweet. What I will do next time is make a sugar-cinnamon-nutmeg mix and sprinkle it on top. I think that would enhance it more without adding a lot of sugar.
