  • 5 apples, peeled and thinly sliced (I used honeycrisp, but you could also use gala, pink lady, etc)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (ghee or coconut oil)
  • 2 teaspoons apple pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons maple sugar (coconut sugar or organic cane sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream (or full fat canned coconut milk)
  • 1 package Simple Mills Gluten Free Cake Mix
  • 12 tablespoons butter (1 1/2 sticks of butter), cut into small cubes – you can also use ghee or coconut oil
  • your favorite ice cream, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 baking dish.
  2. Peel and thinly slice apples. Place a large nonstick pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon butter. Add the apples and let them sauté for about 10 minutes, getting soft and caramelized. Then add the apple pie spice and toss with the apples to wake up the spices. After about a minute, add the maple sugar and and heavy cream. Mix to combined and bring to a low boil to create a caramel sauce with the apples. Remove from heat after about 3-5 minutes, once the caramel has begun to thicken. Pour into the greased baking dish and spread evenly throughout.
  3. Pour the cake mix on top of the apples and spread evenly. Place the cubes of butter on top of the cake mix, covering as much of the cake mix as possible.
  4. Place in the oven to bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Top with your favorite ice cream and serve up to your favorite souls.
