Susan Prescott gave me this wonderful idea from my Chocolate Fudge Cherry Cake comments. It smelled just wonderful baking and is so easy to make. Three ingredients is all you need. I had a spice cake mix, a can of apple pie filling, and eggs. That is it. I then made a simple brown sugar frosting...

Hope you try it...

Thank you Susan!!

How to Make Apple Spice Cake / Brown Sugar Frosting - So Easy

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. I chopped the apples into about 1 inch chunks.

    In a medium bowl, add cake mix, three eggs, and the apples with thickening.
  3. Using a spatula, mix well. Make sure all is incorporated well, batter will be thick.
  4. Spread into cake pan evenly.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. When cake only has 5 minutes left; start the frosting if using.
  6. Frosting:

    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.
  7. Stir in confectioners’ sugar and vanilla. Beat well; if the mixture seems too thin, add more confectioners’ 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.
  8. You could also add nuts to the cake or frosting!

    Enjoy!!!!
