  • 1 21 ounce can apple pie filling
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup water
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 15.25 ounce package yellow cake mix
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼   cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 13- x 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Empty the apple pie filling into a large mixing bowl. Use a metal spoon to break up the apple slices into smaller pieces. Add the eggs, water and oil, and stir to combine. Add the cake mix, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and the nutmeg and stir until well combined. Spread the batter in the prepared baking dish.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the walnuts, sugar, flour, and remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Add the melted butter and toss to combine. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over batter.
  • Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out with just a few moist crumbs and the streusel is golden brown. If the streusel is getting too dark, lightly place a sheet of foil over the top of the baking dish towards the end of the baking time.
  • Cool in the baking dish for at least 15 minutes before serving. Delicious served slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!


This is a very moist cake and will be at its best if consumed within a day or two. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers beyond that point to keep it nice and fresh.
