Souped Up Apple Junk Recipe

Souped Up Apple Junk Recipe was so easy to make and a simple crowd pleaser. This is a recipe that I have been making for years. It really hits the spot in the fall but one of my son-in-laws absolutely loves apple anything, so I try to make something for him when he comes for dinner. This is simple with easy ingredients. Typically, I make this in a dutch oven, but I don’t have one of those anymore so I used a 13×9 dish and it worked out just fine.


2 cans of apple pie filling

Cinnamon and sugar

1 box of yellow cake mix

1 stick of butter

Brown Sugar

Caramel Sauce


In a greased 13×9 dish, put in your 2 cans of apple pie filling.  On top of that, sprinkle a layer of brown sugar and then the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Next, squeeze on a layer of caramel sauce. After that, pour on the yellow cake mix (just the mix, do not make the batter). Lastly, cut your stick of butter into pats and place it all over the cake.

Bake, covered, at 350 for about 30 minutes. Then, I took the aluminum off and baked it for an addition 5 minutes.

Serve hot and for weirdos out there, you can add ice cream (enter gagging sounds because that concept is NOT my jam).

On a whim, I decided to come up with an apple dessert. This is the IInstant Vortex Air Fryer Apple Dessert with Streusel (Gluten Free). I had bought some red delicious apples last week and they were not getting eaten. Red delicious is not really a great apple to bake with, so next time I will use a gala apple. Though I used what I had, this turned out really well!

I started with just one apple to see how it would do. The skin was nasty so we scooped out the middle and then B and I gobbled it up! Then we realized that I had about 20 more apples and the instant vortex was not going to cut it. I thought it would be the same, so I put it in the oven.

It wasn’t the same.

Still good.

Not the same though.

Instant Vortex Air Fryer Apple Dessert with Streusel (Gluten Free)

Apple (preferably Gala)

Cinnamon/Sugar mixture


Cut your apple in half and then use a spoon to get the core out. Spread with some melted butter and then sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar. Air-fry at 350 for 10 minutes.


1/4 c. butter, melted

1/2 c. gluten free oats

1/4 c. brown sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix well. Once the apples are done, pull them out and place the streusel on top. Place them back in the air-fryer for another 5 minutes.

Scoop them from the peel.

Oven Version

A bunch of apples (peeled). Next time, I will cube them up and put them in a large bowl. Pour over about 1/4 c. melted butter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. Then, place in a greased 13×9 dish. Put aluminum foil over the top and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Use a knife to check to see if they are done.

Once they are done, do the above streusel recipe (double it) and sprinkle it on top. Take the top off and throw back in the oven for another 8 minutes or so. Keep in mind, this is not what I did so it took much much longer but it was still really good!
