Easier than Apple Pie

Amanda Marble


I have never been able to make a good pie crust, so I designed this instead.
I have used white, yellow or butter cake mix and just added extra spices to the batter.

How to Make Easier than Apple Pie


  • 1I have this lovely apple corer/peeler. This amazing tool makes dealing with peeling and coring apples SO much easier. True, it's not needed, but it LOVELY to use. Plus, it makes these darling, pretty strands of apple peels that I could've taken a million pictures of, as the textures are great and intriguing.
  • 2Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
  • 3Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  • 4Mix wet ingredients together.
  • 5Blend wet and dry ingredients together.
  • 6Set batter aside.
  • 7Lay one layer of apple slices in the bottom of a large pie dish (10")
  • 8Cover with batter, repeat until all the apples are layered in batter.
  • 9Cover with remaining batter
  • 10Bake for 1 hour, and 10 minutes.
  • 11Cool 10-15 minutes.
  • 12Serve with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and drizzle in Caramel Sauce!
