“One of the easiest cakes ever! My mom uses this recipe template to make coffee cakes at church. Try different combinations of cakes and pie fillings! Some favorites: Chocolate cake + cherry pie filling, White cake + blueberry pie filling, Cinnamon swirl cake + apple pie filling, Yellow cake + peach pie filling”
1 cake

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 boxed caramel flavored cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
  • 1 -2 cup brown sugar (optional)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons melted butter (optional)


  1. Preheat oven according to cake package directions.
  2. In a medium-large bowl, mix all ingredients by hand. (A hand mixer tends to mush up the apple pieces.)
  3. Grease a 9" x 13" pan, pour in batter, spreading evenly to corners.
  4. OPTIONAL: Before baking, mix some brown sugar with a bit of melted butter and crumble across the top of the cake. Use as much or as little as you like.
  5. Bake according to cake package directions. Test with a toothpick for doneness.
  6. Best served warm with vanilla ice cream, or with coffee at breakfast!
