How to make an easy apple pie bread with a cake mix. This is a semi homemade fall dessert that's easy to make. You can also make it as muffins.

This uses applesauce and a cake mix, so it's very simple to make. My kids liked making cake mix quick breads when they were learning to cook.

I used a spice cake mix, but you can use a yellow cake or white cake. I have directions for modifying by adding extra spices in my easy apple bread from cake mix recipe. I also have some tips and variations and how to make muffins with this recipe.

This is a delicious fall recipe that will become a family favorite for sure!15

  • 2 Cups Applesauce
  • 1 Box Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 Apple (Diced)


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, diced apples and apple sauce.
Pour the apple batter into a nonstick bread pan. You can also line the bread pan with parchment paper if you’re worried the batter will stick.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until you can poke a tooth pick into the center of the bread and it comes out dry. It can take awhile.

      I thought the original sounded too good to be true. Your recipe sounds just as good! I make sourdough bread quite often. Using the banana bread recipe, I substituted apples for bananas and added raisins, craisins, and (unchopped) walnut halves to it. I think your EASY bread would be just as good...probably better with the nuts toasted. Thanks for posting the recipe!

    What size bread pan, please? And why did it fall flat instead of a nice rounded rise?
