  • 20 oz apple pie filling see note
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 13" x 9" baking dish.
  • Spread apple pie filling in the dish.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together.
  • Drop cut butter and cut in with dry ingredients with a fork or pastry cutter. You can also use your hands. The mixture should be crumbly.
  • Sprinkle it over the filling.
  • Bake cake for 40 minutes, until bubbly on the edges.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before serving.


  • In general, one can of filling is 20 ounces. I used my homemade Apple Pie Filling recipe. It's very easy and quick to make.
  • You can use other fillings too! We love it with berry fillings and peach filling too. It’s even better if you can make them from scratch too.
