Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix dry cake mix and spices, then use to prepare cake batter as directed on package; pour into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Beat dry pudding mixes, sugar, milk and water in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in apples; spoon evenly over batter. Place dish on rimmed baking sheet.
Bake 1 hour 10 min. to 1 hour 15 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly. (Sauce will thicken slightly as it cools.)
The baking sheet is placed under the baking dish to catch any juices that might bubble over the sides of the dish as the dessert bakes.
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Since Granny Smith apples hold their shape when baked, they work well in this baked dessert. Or if you have Golden Delicious apples, you can use them instead.
Substitute 2 chopped fresh pears for the apples.
Prepare using a spice cake mix instead of the yellow cake and spices.
