Makes: 12-15 servings Total Time: 1 hr

what you need
  • 1 box spice cake mix minus 1/2 cup (save for future recipes*)
  • 2 cans Comstock Apple Pie Filling
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 stick + 2 tablespoons melted margarine
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon-sprinkled on top
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg-sprinkled on top
make it
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick spray. Layer in order, cake mix-breaking up any lumps, pie filling, coconut, and pecans. If using raisins they may be added after the pie filling.

Spooning slowly, or using a baster, drizzle melted margarine all over top of ingredients; try not to have "dry" spots.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until nicely browned. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream for a real treat.
I have been making this quick and easy dessert for 28 years. It is great for potlucks and unexpected company. It can be in the oven in less than 10 minutes-just keep the ingredients on hand. It has become a family favorite.

*I find that the whole box of cake mix was too much. I save about 1/2 cup from each time I make the recipe in a zip-type bag in freezer. When I have added about 2 1/2 cups total, I have enough for another dessert. The dry cake mix is also good to make streusel toppings for muffins; just add 1 tablespoon of softened margarine and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
