1 spice cake mix 1 - 21 oz can apple pie filling - i chopped the slices up a bit 3 eggs FROSTING 5 Tbsp unsalted butter 1/2 c packed brown sugar 1/4 tsp salt 3 Tbsp milk 1 1/2 c confectioners' sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

I chopped the apples into about 1 inch chunks.

In a medium bowl, add cake mix, three eggs, and the apples with thickening.

Using a spatula, mix well. Make sure all is incorporated well, batter will be thick.

Spread into cake pan evenly
Bake for 30 minutes. When cake only has 5 minutes left; start the frosting if using

In a small pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in brown sugar and salt. Cook, stirring, until the sugar melts.

Add the milk, bring to a boil, and pour into a mixing bowl. Cool for 10 minutes.

Stir in confectionersí sugar and vanilla. Beat well; if the mixture seems too thin, add more confectionersí sugar. Use the frosting while it is still warm or it will firm up while it cools and you won't be able to spread it. I spread the frosting on the warm cake.

You could also add nuts to the cake or frosting
