This is a great idea for a cake but I found that using dollops of the apple pie filling was too heavy for those spots and many pieces the filling sank to almost the bottom of the cake so when removing from the pan it was so thin on the bottom that they would break apart. I think the 10x15 pan is too large and maybe using a 9x13 would be better and allow a thicker bottom layer of the cake. Also it needs some type of spice like cinnamon or allspice (even with a cherry pie filling that would be yummy). My guests enjoyed it but all made comments about the need for a spice. Still a recipe that is easily adjusted to improve the final result and I'm happy I adopted you in Pick A Chef Fall 2011.

These were wonderful! I used apple pie filling. Next time I will spread the whole thing with the filling to make it prettier. Also, I baked mine in a 9X13 pan and found they were a nice thickness. Very tasty and very easy! Thank you for sharing!

It was a good concept however I didnt feel they were very flavorful and somewhat thin using a 10 x 15 pan....I unfortunately wouldnt make again. I would suggest dump cake as a better option for using pie filling. sorry...

My daughter says this is the most delicious thing she's ever eaten. I could take offence!:) It was good. I need to practise to get it looking good, though. I used cherry pie filling and the blobs of cherry perhaps didn't do the trick. I think next time I'll cut them into squares and use a teaspoon of filling. There will be a next time!
