The craziest thing about his cake is how you layer it together.  Let’s get started, I can’t wait to show you.

How to Make a Cake Mix Apple Cobbler

Begin by cutting a stick of butter into cubes and placing them into the bottom of your baking pan.  Place the pan in the oven so that the butter can melt.

While you wait for the butter to melt, core, peel and slice the apples.  Place in a bowl and add 1/4 cup of dry cake mix, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to apples.  Mix until apples are well coated.

Although it is phenomenal at room temperature, warm is where it is at.  Serving up a piece of this cake straight from the oven is like a little piece of heaven.

The apples soften up and the brown sugar makes a thickened caramel sauce that is better than any cinnamon roll.  Did I mention the delicious cake on top?  This is sure to be a new favorite at your house too.
