Apple/Cinnamon Cake With 5 Ingredients

"Co workers request this often. It is so easy I can bake it before work and take it while it is still warm. If you like coffee, it's great with your morning cup. Credit goes to "Thank You apple pie filling" I found this on the top of the can many years ago. My friend doesn't like apple cakes but asked for seconds of this."

  1. We enjoyed it, very easy to make. It didn't say but I greased and floured the pan, and I followed the other comments and hand mixed it by mixing the eggs, then adding the mix cake mix and pie filling. Thanks nursevb! Made for Help a Naked Recipe game.
  2. Good and easy! My Grandma Kilburn use to make this with a can of fruit cocktail! Drain 1/2 of the liquid off. Maybe cream cheese frosting, with cinnamon mixed in.
  3. I made this for guests last night and it was a HUGE hit! I added some cinnamon to the dry cake mix as suggested, and I mixed the batter by hand to keep the apple pieces intact. I baked in a bundt pan (took 42 mins), and before serving topped it with the caramel glaze from recipe #185528. SO easy and delicious! I will definitely make this again!
  4. I really liked this. I will say after reading reviews about apple texture I opted not to use the mixer to avoid breaking down the apples. My girls complained so next time, I will surely use the mixer. I did add a generous handful of walnuts and even my mother in law liked it. Super simple. Great go-quick dessert option. I will definitely make this again.
  5. How much easier can it possibly get? Outstanding recipe! My apples were nicely distributed and not too chopped up at all. However I used "Comstock Apple Pie Filling" which contains more apples than other brands. Thanks for such an easy, good dessert. I served it with a dab of 'French Vanilla Cool Whip".


Thank you to my good friend for this premium membership as a wonderful birthday gift. I grew up a military brat and managed to eat many various foods, but being very young then, I now am experiencing those foods at an age that I can appreciate them. Being a nurse, I have a busy work schedule and like to find recipes that produce great tastes to share with friends but don't take alot of time. With a warm, humid climate in NC, I look for lite foods or things to grill. One can only eat sooo many salads though. Texture is VERY important. I have learned to eat meat med-rare, but nothing "gooshy or slimy"! Some day I will master homemade biscuits and moms meatloaf. I already have the enchilada sauce down pat and am finding many more here.
