A followup: We tried this with cherry pie filling too - and it was very tasty. Don't use a mixer with the cherry filling (unless a pink cake is what you are going for). We carefully swirled the filling through the cake mix. We also omitted the cinnamon/sugar layer.

I made this once for company. Now it is a must have for my gests. I have even given it as gifts and got all sort of compliments, including "give me this for every occassion"
It is easy and a no brainer.

Made this tonight and we loved it. I was leery about using such few ingredients but it was tasty and moist and I will be making this again as it is sooooooo easy.

I make homemade apple pie in a jar and was searching online for a cake recipe. I used this recipe with the addition of adding Smucker's caramel sauce. I put half of the batter in the pan; drizzled some caramel sauce; put the rest of the batter in the pan. When I took it out of the oven I drizzled more on top to form a thin layer and served it with cool whip. It was a great success! very moist and easy when you are limited on time to make a great dessert.

This cake was so dry nobody would eat it. It was awful. Shouldn't there be some oil or water in the recipe?
