Cake Batter
  • 1 box yellow or white cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water
Apple Filling
  • 2 large apples, diced (I used Gala, but Granny Smith or any flavorful apple would work great)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, place in all ingredients for the apple filling. Allow to cook down, about ten minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  3. Next, mix cornstarch and water together to make the slurry. Add into the apple filling, and stir until the apple liquid thickens. Take off heat.
  4. In a mixing bowl, add dry cake mix, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and water. Mix well.
  5. In a greased 9x13 pan, pour in half the cake batter, smoothing it to fill the bottom of the pan.
  6. Pour apple pie filling evenly over the cake batter.
  7. Pour the rest of the cake batter evenly over the top.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  9. To make the icing, mix powdered sugar and vanilla extract with 1 Tbsp of milk. If the mix is too thick, add in more milk; if it's too runny, add in more powdered sugar.
