1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist yellow cake mix
3/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 eggs
1 cup coarsely shredded peeled tart apples (2 medium)
optional: 3 teaspoons apple pie spice
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with baking spray with flour.

2:  In large bowl, add cake mix, apple cider or juice, melted butter and the eggs (also add the apple pie spice if desired).  Beat with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.

3:  Stir in apples and pour into pan.

4:  Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven. Let stand 20 minutes.  Run metal spatula around outer and inside edges of pan to loosen cake. Remove from pan to cooling rack.

Darlene’s Tips: You could try this with spice cake mix if you like the spice flavor.  If you want to add spice but you don’t have apple pie spice, just use equal parts of cinnamon and nutmeg or even just cinnamon.  Want a more luxurious cake?  Brush about a 1/4 of melted butter over the top of the cake immediately after removing from the pan then sprinkle with sugar (or cinnamon sugar).  If you don’t have a bundt pan, just use a cake pan and bake as directed on the cake mix box for whatever size pan or pans you use. Could make cupcakes (more like muffins?) too!
