Dutch Apple Cake

Our family doesn't have cable.  We enjoy instant streaming on Netflix, instead.  One of the shows we like to watch is "Cake Boss".  A recent episode we watched showed Buddy (the "Cake Boss") showing someone how to make a Dutch Apple Cake.  It looked so yummy!  I had a box of cake mix on hand that a friend had given me and a can of apple pie filling left over from our summer camping trip (think campfire pies) so I knew I could come up with something.  I ran to the computer to find a recipe that I could tweak.  The results were an entire cake gone in one meal (which, honestly, isn't hard with our big family), and several requests to make it again.  My plan is to can apple pie filling this fall and also figure out a bulk basic cake mix recipe like my muffin mix recipe.  When I do I will be sure to share it with you!  Until then, enjoy!

Dutch Apple Cake
1 pkg. (18 1/2 oz.) yellow cake mix
1/2 c. butter, melted
2 eggs
1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling

3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. butter, softened

Preheat oven 350 degrees.  In large bowl, combine dry cake mix, melted butter and eggs; blend well.  Spread on the bottom of a 9x13 cake pan. (It will not look like cake batter...it will be a lot thicker...that's o.k.!)  Spoon pie filling evenly over batter.  In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon, cut in butter.  Sprinkle over pie filling.  Bake for 30-35 minutes.  This cake is especially yummy topped with a scoop (or three) of ice cream!  Enjoy!
