Total Time50 mins


  • 2 21-ounce cans apple pie filling
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Combine dry cake mix and butter in a mixer bowl. Beat at low speed for about a minute, until crumbly. There may be large pieces of butter in the mixture, that's okay. Remove 1 1/2 cups of the cake mixture to a medium bowl and stir in cranberries and cinnamon, use your fingers to toss the mixture if you need to.
  • To the remaining cake mixture in the mixer bowl, add the milk and beat on low until all dry mixture is moist. use a spoon to bring it all together. Again, there will be visible pieces of butter, you don't want to overheat this mixture.
  • Heat pie filling in a large bowl in the microwave until bubbly, about 4-5 minutes, covered. Pour hot filling into a 13x9 baking pan. Top pie filling with dollops of cake batter then sprinkle with the cranberry topping mixture.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes or until topping is golden brown and cracks appear dry. Cool 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream.
