  1. Mix the box of cake mix, eggs, pie filling and applesauce till moist. Use a microwave safe bundt pan or substitute a microwave safe bowl that has a microwave safe cup or cone placed in the middle of it (to mimic a bundt pan). Pour mixture into the bowl around the cup.
  2. Bake on high for 6 minutes 30 seconds, turn and bake for another 6 minutes 30 seconds on high. Remove from oven and cover bowl with a dish and let stand for 5 minutes (this finishes the cooking process).
  3. Turn cake over onto dish and remove cone (cup) for a delicious quick dessert. Good hot with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.

So far I have tried the following combinations: chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling, white cake mix with strawberry pie filling, and yellow cake mix with apple pie filling and cinnamon. All three times it has turned out wonderfully. If you are looking for a unique way to serve it, try this: CAKE IN A COFFEE MUG~ Mix your favorite microwave cake combo. Spray a coffee mug with cooking spray. For mugs that hold a 1 cup fluid capacity add 1/2 cup batter. Microwave for 1 min 40 seconds. Let sit aprox 5 minutes in or out of microwave. Great in the mug, but easy to pop out as well. (makes 10 & 1/2 mugs worth) For 1 1/2 cup or larger capacity mugs use 3/4 cup batter and microwave for 2 min and let sit for 5. (Makes 7 mugs worth). Note, the first time I tried the regular recipe, I used a silacone pan but not a bundt pan. It turned out ok, but was a little gooey in the center. I didn't have that problem when I used the bundt pan the next two times. It's not a problem with the mugs as they are so small.

This didn't work for me. Maybe it depends on the microwave? It got very done in some parts and not done at all in others, even though I turned it. It didn't taste the greatest either.

This is WONDERFUL!! I make the chocolate cake with cherry pie filling, then drizzled chocolate syrup over it while it was still warm and served with vanilla ice cream. Sinful! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! :)

The chocolate cake with cherry pie filling is delicious. To frost this cake I take 1 cup of chocolate chips melt them in the microwave just until melted then add half small container ( 250 ml) of sour cream to melted chocolate chips

This recipe came out wonderful... even though I changed several things. I didn't have canned pie filling and I had a Lemon supreme cake mix, not a yellow. But, so remembering another cake recipe from years ago and took some risks... I used a 15oz. container of Ricotta Cheese and increased the amount of applesauce used to make 26oz. of wet ingredients. I used a silicone bundt pan and it came out fantastic! I suspect though, that you must use a high-watt microwave, as baking I've tried in a smaller micro I had several years ago did not come out well. I think the ricotta is a great way to add protein to baked goods, and it probably improved the texture of my cake. The lemon flavor had a real kick to it, which might be enjoyed more by those who mentioned the yellow cake being too bland. I made a simple lemon glaze for it and it disappeared! I took a photo of the finished cake and will upload it this weekend. Thanks for this recipe!

I was quite surprised with how good this was. I ecpected it to turn out rubbery but tried it anyway because it sounded so easy (and inexpensive). Glad I did. I made the chocolate cake using a devils food cake mix (with pudding in the mix), a can of cherry pie filling, eggs, applesauce and added almond extract. (The almond flavor was really good with the chocolate and cherries.) I baked it in a soft-sided silicone bundt pan and the cake came out easily. I think the success of this recipe probably depends on your microwave oven. It worked for me, and I'll be making it again. Thanks!

This was very good. I also like lemon cake with lemon pie filling (dusted with powdered sugar!). Thank you for posting this very easy recipe. Great when the kids are in the mood for cake, but I don't have much time...
