Made it Monday; Fresh Apple Cake

Im not keen on cooking but when I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it was only 3 ingredients, how hard could it be??
Fresh Apple Cake

Fresh Fruit, sliced if large
Package yellow cake mix
Stick of butter

Layer your apple slices (or other fruit) at the bottom of a pan that has been coated with non-stick spray.

Sprinkle on boxed cake mix.

I didn't even use the entire box -- save a little if you please, and then you can use it to make single-serving versions of this same recipe when you get a sweet tooth!
Melt an entire stick of butter 
Pour butter over the fruit and dry cake mix.

Edit: Usually, I've found that the butter and the moisture from the fruit is enough to soak into the dry mix and create a nice cooked crust.  If, however, when cooking, you find that some of your cake mix still looks powdery, you can try sprinkling a few tablespoons of water over those areas to ensure thorough cooking.  You could also do this preemtively at this point when you've poured the butter over the dry cake mix.
Bake at 350* for approximately 35-45 minutes -- it's done when it is nice and bubbly.
And TADA! Fresh Apple coppler cake topped with vanilla ice cream!

  1. This looks amazing and simple. And a lot easier to do that make everything from scratch. So I'm going to do this for my holiday baking. Shhh ! :)

  2. So was it good? I'm gonna make it right now.

  3. any butter substitutions you think would work?
