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).

Preheat the oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray. Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder in a separate bowl. Set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugars until combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until fluffy. Then, mix in the dry ingredients until combined well. Add the 12 oz. of chocolate chips and mix well.

Roll 2-3 Tbsp of dough, at a time, into balls. Place them evenly spaced on your prepared cookie sheets. You can also use a small cookie scoop to do this. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 8-10 minutes.

Take them out when they are just BARELY starting to turn brown. Remember, the bottoms will brown quicker than the top.

You could slather your naked body with the dough. Just a thought cause the dough is FANTASTIC. Also, you can bake the cookies until they are crispier. My father-in-law loved burnt cookies. These cookies remind me of the Soft Batch Cookies from back in the day.
