Description

Pour pie filling into bottom of crockpot.
In a larger bowl, crumb soften butter into cake mix. Carefully sprinkle all of the mix on top of the pie filling.
Place crockpot lid on top. Turn crockpot on high and let it 'cook' for about 3 to 4 hours. You may have to adjust your cooking time depending on your crockpot. I found my old one took 4 hours, but my new one can do it in 2. Try not to lift the lid and just let it sit. You'll know when it's done when the filling is bubbling up through the cake mix on top and has turned 'gooey/crusty'. Plus it will smell oh soooo good! (It will not turn out like cake, and be ooey and gooey.) Serve with vanilla ice cream scoop on top.
To 'jump start' it. If your crockpot can fit in a microwave, place it in and let it cook on high for 5 minutes, then place it in your crockpot to cook for a couple of hours. I usually turn on the crockpot base while it's in the microwave so it's hot by the time I put it in there. If it can't fit, then put the pie filling into another bowl first, and nuke it for 5 minutes so the filling is nice and hot. Then follow the recipe as above.
I use this recipe all the time, it's my families favorite. You can mix the cake flavors with different pie fillings for some ooey gooey desserts. Depends on the helping size! Good for potlucks2401 cake mix- any flavor. Yellow cake or spice cake works best.1 stick of butter 2 cans of pie filling- any flavor. I perfer apples, cherries or blueberries.
