Can’t wait to try this. I did it last week with Angel Food Cake mix and Lemon Pie filling and it came out great! What size apple pie filling did you use???


Ei August 21, 2012 at 9:10 pm

It’s just the two ingedients? Nothing more?

You can also do this with a can of pineapple and it’s sooo good but I am allergic to pineapple so then I end up with a sore mouth. This is a great alternative!


Sara October 5, 2012 at 7:23 pm

A sore mouth from pineapple isn’t an allergy. The sore mouth is a result of the acid in the pineapple.


Cheryl January 3, 2013 at 2:56 pm

That is interesting to know Sara. I only have this issue with fresh pineapple, not canned.


Laura August 22, 2012 at 2:11 am

What kind of pan do you use?


Valerie February 12, 2013 at 11:02 pm

===Laura, I used a bundt pan, but I think next time I will use a 9×13. Also, don’t use the time suggested for an AF cake…check it after 30 minutes….and then every 5 min or so….mine was way overbaked.

Any tips on buying the angel food cake mix either on sale or with a coupon? Because every time I go to buy it, it is never included in the normal betty crocker cake mix sales and there usually isn’t a store brand available either. Any advice?


Carrol May 30, 2016 at 4:23 pm

I buy the angel food cake mix at the local Aldi’s. Always good results with it.


Lana Guerr August 22, 2012 at 10:45 pm

What is pan do we need?


Colleen August 23, 2012 at 7:50 pm

no water as instructed on the mix?

Christa August 29, 2012 at 9:37 pm

I made the angel food cake as instructed on the package (just add water) and then folded in the apple pie filling. My husband is in LOVE with this recipe! Thanks so much!!!


Susan August 30, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Please tell us what size pan to use.


Jonathan September 11, 2012 at 7:30 pm

If you want to know what pan to use… look at the box directions. She clearly says “Mix the to together and bake according to the box instructions”


Linda October 5, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Don’t be mean, Jonathan!!


Amy M September 12, 2012 at 10:36 am

I can’t wait to make this for my family, thanks!!


barb September 17, 2012 at 4:17 pm

I made this recipe for my church picnic this weekend. I added a caramel cream cheese frosting on top. It was a huge hit! Thanks so much!


Kay September 26, 2012 at 11:43 pm

This sounds great, any suggestions for a topping or way to spruce this easy recipe up looks wise?


Kay September 26, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Or maybe a good topping? Thanks! I love your website and easy recipes!


Carrol May 30, 2016 at 4:24 pm

Maybe some cinnamon sugar on top of the batter? A bundt cake would be fun with a little drizzle over it made from powdered sugar & a splash of milk.


Renee November 2, 2012 at 3:01 am

I’m allergic to eggs, which are in the angel food cake mix, do you think any other type of cake mix might work with this?


littlelottajoy November 13, 2012 at 2:52 pm

It’s EASY people!! One box of Angel Food mix. NO WATER. That’s why this is DIFFERENT. Add one can of apple pie filling, stir, bake, eat.

You can also use INSTEAD OF THE APPLES, a can of LEMON PIE FILLING, or a can of FRUIT COCKTAIL.

Use your imagination and forget about amounts, size of pan, size of oven, or if you use a plate and fork to eat it. REEEEELAX. It’s not brain surgery.

I love you littlelottajoy!


melissa March 12, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Oh this made me laugh! Thank you i needed that this morning. Anyway i was thinkin carmel drizzled on top would be fantastic! Or maybe whip cream…


Rebecca November 22, 2012 at 12:41 am

I couldnt find Angle food cake mix while at the store but am wondering if I can use any other type of mix instead.


Sherry December 6, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Spice cake would probably be good with it too. I like the idea of the caramel topping.


Lori January 4, 2013 at 4:07 am

Made cupcakes instead of a cake. Turned out great!


Holly January 30, 2013 at 7:28 pm

I did this last night with spice cake and apple pie filling and it came out just like apple pie! The only thing is with the spice cake I added a little oil and water because it wouldn’t mix properly and was coming out majorly powder with just the cake mix. Great super cheap recipe!


Ashley March 30, 2013 at 12:02 am

Have you tried using peach pie filling? I’m going to give it a shot this weekend and take it to Easter Dinner. Keeping my fingers crossed that it is as good as the apple version. :)


Sheila M May 19, 2013 at 7:49 pm

Do you think this would work with the No Sugar Apple Pie Mix. We are both diabetic and this would make a great dessert. We can take a little sugar which I realize is in the cake mix. I may have to try it, will let you know how it comes out. Sheila


Watson May 19, 2013 at 11:08 pm

It should work great :)


Janis Spear June 15, 2013 at 12:15 pm

We don’t have those exact brand names here, but I am SO going to try this. Looks wonderful. xxx


Kya June 17, 2013 at 7:27 pm

What size can of apple pie filling?


Watson June 17, 2013 at 8:29 pm

It is about 21 oz


Sheila M July 12, 2013 at 9:50 pm

I used another recipe that called for Chocolate cake mix, (no sugar) cherry pie filling (no sugar) and three eggs. For us diabetics this was wonderful, will be trying it with other cake mixes and fruits.


Denise August 8, 2013 at 5:37 pm

Made it last night — just the contents in the box and what was in the pie filling can. Yep….I followed the directions. WOW!!! Very easy AND very tasty. Light and refreshing! How easy when company shows up unexpected. Definitely a keeper!!


Watson August 8, 2013 at 5:47 pm

I am so happy you liked it :)


Lisa September 23, 2013 at 11:26 pm

I chopped the apples in the pie filling so I got more apple bits in the cake. I also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before I baked it.


Georgianna September 27, 2013 at 6:44 pm

What kind of icing would you recommend?


Danielle October 6, 2013 at 6:20 pm

This sounds delish! Do y’all think a muffin pan would work? My concern is if the “muffins” will fall apart? I was thinking of using them as a quick breakfast side with oatmeal or something with my family.


Watson October 6, 2013 at 9:32 pm

Hmmm I would not try it


mary October 11, 2013 at 12:56 pm

do you know if can use fresh apples? was given lots of apples and need recipes to use them in?


Kathryn October 22, 2013 at 6:40 pm

How did you let it cool? I made this last night in a 9×13 and the middle sank and is less than an inch tall, the edge of the pan was almost half an inch taller than the pan. It tastes good, just a little dense where it sank in.


Watson October 22, 2013 at 7:09 pm

I cool it in the freezer


Allie Talley March 14, 2014 at 4:29 pm

I did this with lemon filling and loved it! But the apple’s also good!
