Making apple crisp with cake mix is an easy recipe. Ingredients required are 6 apples (peeled, cored and sliced), 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 cup butter and 1 (18.25 ounce) package of white cake mix. Two 21-ounce cans of apple pie filling can be substituted for the apples and water.
To make apple crisp with cake mix, preheat the oven to 350 F and lightly grease a 9- by 13-inch baking pan. Arrange the apples in an even layer covering the bottom of the pan, then add the water. In a bowl, mix the cake mix, brown sugar and cinnamon together, then pour in the melted butter and blend thoroughly. Sprinkle this over the apples. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes.
