Last week, I tried a recipe I saw posted on Facebook, and I couldn’t believe how easy and delicious it was. That recipe was for Apple Spice Crockpot cake: put two cans of apple pie filling into a crockpot, pour the dry Spice cake mix on top, and then put two sticks (8 oz) of butter on top of that. Cover and cook on high 2 to 2.5 hours.
I was skeptical about not mixing anything, but I tried it, and it was fantastic. Somehow, all of the ingredients came together, and it was like apple cobbler.
It got me thinking about other variations, so today, I tried the same basic technique using two cans of cherry pie filling, one box of chocolate fudge cake mix, and two sticks of butter. The video I saw on Facebook shows the sticks of butter being placed right on top, but I decided to cut them up into pieces to make sure the butter was evenly distributed. It worked out great–absolutely delicious, and so easy. Definitely going to stock these ingredients in the pantry this Winter for a fast, simple dessert.
