  • 1 apple
  • 21 oz Apple Pie Filling
  • 1/2 cup caramel topping
  • Yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cup melted butter


  • Heat the Oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Take the apple and peel, cut, and dice it into small chunks.
  • Pour the can of Apple Pie filling over the fresh apple.
  • Drizzle caramel topping over the apple mixture.
  • Cover the apple and caramel mixture with cake mix. Drizzle 3/4 cup of melted butter over the cake mix.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes. The top should be golden brown and the apples should be bubbling up on the sides.
  • Remove from oven and serve vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce.


  1. If you want to use fresh apples rather than pre-made pie filling, add 1/2 cup water, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon into a medium saucepan on the stovetop. Cook and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add 4-5 peeled and sliced apples and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally for an additional 5 minutes. Add to the baking dish, cover with cake mix, caramel, and butter and cook as directed.
  2. If you want to skip the fresh apples altogether, use (2) 21oz. cans of apple pie filling and this recipe will be even faster to put together. 
  3. Store remaining leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
