you’ve heard the phrase, ‘easy as pie’? well, this is even easier than pie!


How to…

step 1. peel, core, slice apples.  i used 10 gala apples. well we munched while we worked, so, 9 1/2 apples.

step 2. place apples in bottom of greased baking dish (this is where my little helpers hop in).

step 3. sprinkle white cake mix (straight from the box) and cinnamon until top is covered. used about 3/4 of the box.

step 4. place butter slices here and there.  i used 1 1/2 cubes of butter.

step 5. bake at 350 for about 40 minutes–or until apples are soft and crumb topping is crumbly–not very scientific, but it’s hard to mess up!

step 6. serve with ice cream and hot caramel–or alone.  oh yum!


you can also use canned peaches, frozen berries–any fruit. and it makes the whole house smell like fall!  what’s cookin’ in your kitchen?
