Apple-Ginger Spice Cake

Prep time 15 mins
Bake time 20 mins
Cool time 10 mins
Yield Makes 12 servings
Inspired by the super-fast So-Easy Cherry-Fudge Cake, we came up with this fall twist using gingerbread cake mix and apple filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14.5-oz.) package gingerbread cake mix
  • 1 (21-oz.) can apple pie filling
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat first 5 ingredients at low speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer 20 seconds; increase speed to medium, and beat 1 minute. Pour batter into a greased and floured 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

  2. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes.

  3. Whisk together powdered sugar and sour cream until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Serve cake warm or at room temperature.

  4. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cake & Cookie Mix and Comstock More Fruit Apple Pie Filling or Topping.
