If there is a "one size fits all" dessert, this is it. The variations are endless, limited only by your mood and imagination. We have our personal favorites, mine is the Caramel Apple and my husband's is the blueberry. Here are a few of our most loved. Experiment till you find your own.

Variations:
1. Use Blueberry Pie Filling with a Yellow cake mix. Sometimes I leave off the brown sugar and sometimes I don't. Sprinkle pecans over the cake (optional). Follow with the butter. Bake and serve.

2.Use Cherry or Strawberry Pie Filling with a Yellow Cake Mix.
Leave off the brown Sugar. Sprinkle your pecans over the cake mix (optional) then top with the butter. When done serve as is or sprinkle top with confectioner’s sugar.

3.Use Cherry or Strawberry Pie Filling with a Devil's Food cake mix. Leave off the brown Sugar. Sprinkle your pecans over the cake mix (optional) then top with the butter. When done serve as is or drizzle with chocolate ice cream topping.

4. Follow the directions as witten, substituting peach pie filling for apple pie filling.
