Apple Spice Cake

Apple Spice cake is a quick and easy dessert perfect for any occasion. This recipe is easily made to be dairy-free by subbing out the butter for a plant-based option and the milk from another milk substitute.  My sister has a dairy allergy, so this is one of the deserts that are easily made to fit her dietary restrictions. Of course, it’s still just as wonderful with dairy, I prefer the recipe with dairy. I originally found this recipe on Pinterest but have made some changes to suit my liking.


  • 1 box of spice cake mix
  • 1 20 oz. can of apple pie filling
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp of milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Directions for cake:

  • Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix cake mix, pie filling, and eggs until mixed completely. (There will still be chunks of apple)
  • Grease a 9X13 pan, and pour the mixture into the pan
  • Bake for 25-30 min, until a knife comes out clean
  • Cool completely before frosting

Directions for frosting:

  • Whip the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until fluffy
  • Slowly add in the powdered sugar one cup at a time
  • Add milk to reach desired consistency
