  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Peel, core, and cut each apple into 8 wedges. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, coconut and margarine until crumbly. Pat mixture lightly into prepared pan, building up the edges slightly to form a crust. Arrange the apple wedges on top.
  3. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the apples and the cake mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and sour cream. Drizzle over the top of the cake.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until the edges of the cake are golden and the apples are tender.

I have been using this recipe since I found it in a Betty Crocker ad in Woman's Day when I was 9 (which would have been 32 years ago). However, that recipe was slightly different, calling for d...

I agree with the others, it's too sweet and I used half the sugar. I added another 1/4 C of butter because the cake mix was still powdery not crumbly at all. The topping hardly covered the pan...

Fast & yummy! I used white cake mix b/c I didn't have any yellow on hand. I also had to add a touch of orange jce to get the cake mixture "crumbly". I used toasted coconut b/c I already had some...

I completely omitted the sugar in this recipe. I added a little more cinnamon and some fresh ground nutmeg. Instead of Granny Smiths I used about 6 Red Delicious Apples and it turned out wonde...

One of my favorite desserts of all time. Always a crowd pleaser! I used 1/2 cup butter, and pie sliced apples (not apple pie filling). Very easy and quick. It's a keeper!!!!!!!!!!!1

Nice recipe but I made some mistakes. First, it seemed undercooked so I baked it longer. This was a big mistake b/c the crust got very hard. It was still delicious though. Used peaches since...

My mom has a recipe similar to this one, but we use peaches. Our recipe calls for baking the crust for 10 minutes BEFORE you add the fruit to it. To those that say the sour cream topping isn't...

I made this for an Oktoberfest party and everyone loved it. It stuck to the pan though and I had a hard time getting it out. You really need to use a spatula. I agree with another who said th...

Wonderful cake that is easy to make! Sliced the apples thin with a peeler/corer/slicer which made the cake perfect. Will definitely use this recipe over and over. Thank you.

I loved this and so did my friends. The first time I made it, I used walnuts instead of coconut in the crust, as suggested by someone else. I also cut back on sugar and it was still really sweet...
