I was all set to make this and looked through my cupboards and found out I didn't have apple pie filling. So, I made my own. (In small saucepan, I used 1 1/4 c. water, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, 2 tbsp. cornstarch, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. allspice and cooked it until thickened, then added three large cored, peeled and chopped Granny Smith apples.) Other than that, I made no changes. Smells wonderful. I'll update my review once my family's been able to try it. It really wasn't all that difficult to throw together as a quick dessert, even with making my own substitute apple pie filling. EDITED: I don't think the cream cheese type of frosting is the right frosting for this cake. It tastes off to me. It might be better with a brown sugar frosting or even a vanilla glaze. If I make this again, I'll try that. The cake and frosting are good on their own but would be better paired with different recipes. EDITED SEVERAL DAYS LATER: Noone ate this. Sorry.
