Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
For the cake:
- 2 packets Martha White Apple Cider Muffin Mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1 21 oz can apple pie filling
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon optional
For the icing:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 350F.
Spray bundt pan (really well) with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix up one packet of muffin mix according to packet directions (adding 1/2 cup milk) and stir until combined well. Batter will be lumpy.
Pour batter into the bottom of the bundt pan.
Keep out that mixing bowl, you'll use it again in a minute.
Open can of apple pie filling.
Take a sharp knife and make slicing motions to cut apples while still inside the can. You want them in about 1/2-inch size pieces.
Spread the pie filling evenly on top of the first layer of batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Now, make the second packet of muffin mix according to package directions.
Again, adding 1/2 cup milk and stirring until combine.
Add this final layer of batter on top of the apple pie filling layer.
Place baking pan in the center rack and bake for about 50-60 minutes.
Allow cake to cool completely.
Carefully invert it on a plate. Make icing and drizzle over the top.
If you like, you can make a glaze to drizzle on top or just dust it with a little powdered sugar or serve it as is. To make the glaze, just combine powdered sugar with a tablespoon or two of milk. Whisk it together until smooth, then drizzle it over the top of the cake.
This can also be made in a 9 x 9 square baking dish if you don't have or don't want to use a bundt pan. Can't find the Apple Cider muffin mix? Just use the Apple Cinnamon instead.
