  • 1 box (2-layer size) butter recipe or yellow cake mix
  • 8 oz unsalted butter melted
  • 2 cans (21 oz each) apple pie filling
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce like you’d put on ice cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C degrees Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Mix the pie filling, pecans if using and cinnamon; turn into the prepared pan.
  • Drizzle caramel sauce over the top. Distribute dry cake mix evenly over the top of the filling.
  • Pour melted butter evenly across the top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling at the edges.


The 2-layer size of cake mix generally weighs about 15 ounces. Try to use American brands (for my European readers) as I cannot guarantee results with any other formulation.
