CranApple Crunch

I love baking and one of my favorite desserts growing up was a cherry crunch my mom used to make. Over the years the recipe has morphed and changed into a variety of flavors depending on the season and my mood, {but really, nothing beats the recipe my mom used to make!!} Maybe it’s because she poured so much love into it.

Well, here is my seasonal take on mama’s recipe – and yes, I added extra love just for you:


You will need:
  • 1 box of your favorite yellow cake mix
  • 1 10 oz. can of whole cranberries in sauce (or make your own with fresh cranberries)
  • 1 14oz. can of apple pie filling.
  • 1 – 1 1/2 sticks of butter

  1. Pour the apples in the bottom of a 9x13 pan and spread evenly
  2. Pour the cranberries on top on the apples and carefully spread evenly
  3. Pour the yellow cake mix evenly (do you see a trend here?) on top of the cranapple mixture. Don’t press too hard, just gently spread across the top!
  4. Pour the butter evenly on top of the yellow cake mix. I used one stick but wished I used two.
  5. Spread the butter (you guessed it – EVENLY) over the yellow cake mix.
  6. (OPTIONAL: pour cake mix into a bowl, then add butter and mix to a crumble, then pour on top of your fruit.) Believe it or not, both methods work!
BAKE at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven until the top is a golden brown:


Let cool and enjoy!!
