    I don't have powdered sugar for the glaze has anyone tried a sugar, oatmeal, butter flour crumble to sprinkle on top?

    Can you do this with cherry or strawberry pie filing?

    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.

    I substituted unsweetened applesauce for the oil and used butter for margarine. It was a trade that made our tummies happy.


I am a stay at home mom with 3 boys.I love to cook and bake and my youngest son who is 3 years old loves to help me.....I find whenever he does help out he is more willing to eat what we make so that is always a plus! I love to cook for my family when I have the time, it is a great way to get everyone together!
