  • 1 box yellow cake mix I used Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix
  • cups water
  • cup oil
  • 3 eggs

Apple Mixture

  • 6 apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter cut into small pieces


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees and spray a 13x9 inch pan with baking spray.
  • Prepare the yellow cake according to package instructions: add cake mix, 3 eggs, water and oil to the bowl of your mixer and mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.
  • In a medium bowl, toss together the apple mixture ingredients together and spread over the cake batter.
  • In a medium bowl stir together the flour, brown sugar and salt for the topping and cut in the butter using a fork or pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.
  • Sprinkle topping over the apples and cake batter, evenly.
  • Bake anywhere from 35 minutes to an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if preferred.



  1. For the cake please follow the instructions on your cake mix box. The ingredients listed and instructions were as per the instructions on the cake mix I used, but they could vary.
  2. The best method of storage is to refrigerate in an air tight container for up to 3-4 days. If freezing be sure to let it cool to room temperature before wrapping in plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
  3. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
