Homemade apple pies amongst an Autumn season
Leftover Apple Pie Filling Is The Genius Way To Elevate Boxed Cake Mix
While making an apple pie, you'll sometimes have leftover pie filling. Rather than let it go to waste, use this spicy sweet filling to spruce up a simple box of yellow cake mix.
When baked together, the apple pie filling infuses the cake mix's flavors with its tart fruitiness and adds moisture to the cake, resulting in an apple dump cake with a fluffy top.
Simply pour the apple pie filling into a baking dish, sprinkle the cake mix on top (ensuring it's evenly covering the apples), and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
Beyond standard yellow cake, try this technique with varieties like vanilla, which has a flavor that's enhanced by the juicy apples, especially when cinnamon and nutmeg are added.
Butter pecan cake mix is another great match for apple pie filling, as is spice cake mix, which amps up the apple pie fillings' warming flavors.
