Apple Pie Cake

Apple Pie Cake! Say what? Yep, Apple Pie Cake is exactly that using apple pie filling in a cake. I had one jar left of homemade apple pie filling in the pantry, and thought why not add it to a cake?

Similar to many other cakes with a filling, a little batter goes in the pan first, topped with the apple pie filling, then more batter and lastly an easy crumb topping.

Oh my goodness, so yummy, and so easy! Really easy, and no mixer required. Simply mix the batter in a bowl with a spoon, stirring until batter is smooth. See what I mean? So easy!! Don't just serve it for dessert, this Apple Pie Cake makes a great breakfast treat with a nice cup of coffee or tea.

Don't have any apple pie filling? This would be amazing with any pie filling you like; blueberry, cherry, strawberry, peach and more.

2 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1 can apple pie filling (16 oz)

For crumb topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tbls softened butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, oil, vanilla and milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl and mix to combine.

Pour half of the batter into a greased (or sprayed with baking spray) 8 x 8-inch or 9 x 9-inch pan. Spread apple pie filling over the batter. Pour the remainder of the batter on the top of the apple pie filling, covering completely.

For the crumb topping, mix in butter with flour, cinnamon and brown sugar until crumbs form. Sprinkle crumbs over top of cake.

Bake at 375 for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Yield: 9 servings

  1. This recipe looks amazing, and I love that it makes a smaller pan so John and I can devour it between the two of us.

    1. Julie, yes, love using the small pan since it's just the 2 of us at home also.

  2. I love everything about this cake! The pie filling would really add sweetness and flavor.

  3. I have a bunch of canned apples I made last year when we had too many honeycrisps from my dad's tree. This looks like the perfect use for them!

  4. I made this today using apples I had peeled, diced, and seasoned with sugar & cinnamon, and froze. The extra moisture from being frozen really resulted in very moist cake. I did bake it an extra 10 minutes, and it was AMAZING!
