Cook bacon in large skillet on medium heat just until bacon is lightly browned, turning occasionally. (Do not cook until bacon is crisp.) Remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.
Arrange bacon slices on bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray; top evenly with apple slices. Sprinkle with sugar.
Beat cake mix with reserved bacon drippings and remaining ingredients in large bowl with mixer until blended; pour over ingredients in baking pan.
Bake 35 to 40 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake 5 min. Run knife around edges of pan to loosen cake; invert cake (in pan) onto serving tray. Let stand 5 min. before carefully removing pan. Serve cake warm.
Stir 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon into cake batter before pouring into prepared pan.
