Instructions
  1. Heat the butter & brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon and vanilla. Butter a cake pan and pour in sugar mixture.
  2. Peel and slice 2 Pink Lady® Apples.
  3. Arrange the apple slices on top of the sugar mixture.
  4. Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box. Pour on top of apples, and tap to remove air bubbles.

  6. Let cool slightly, and remove from pan.
  7. Serve, and top with whipped cream.
Recipe Notes

*Squeeze half a lemon over the apples before baking to prevent oxidation. You can also use 100% pineapple juice to prevent oxidation.

*You can substitute yellow cake mix for a spiced cake mix for extra fall flavors.

*You may not need to use all of your boxed cake mix. If you have extra, save it to make a microwave mug cake.

Can you believe a cake this beautiful can be made so quickly? It’s so good, it’ll rival grandma’s apple cake. Enjoy!
