Total time: 
Serves: 12 muffins
  • 1 box of spice cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix)
  • 1 21oz can apple pie filling. You'll probably need to chop the apples.
  • 1 C all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ⅔ C water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ C cold butter, cubed
For the Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • 4oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ C powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  1. In the bowl fo a stand up mixer, beat together ½ cake mix, water, flour and baking powder.
  2. Beat in the eggs until well blended.
  3. Drop batter (about 2 tbsp but more if you want bigger muffins) into lined muffin cups. Then drop some of the apple pie filling onto the top of the batter.
  4. In another mixing bowl, cut the butter into the remaining cake mix until it's crumbly.
  5. Top the apple pie filling with the some of the crumb mixture. Do this to each muffin. You don't want to leave anybody out, do you?
  6. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes
  7. Meanwhile, make the cream cheese glaze. In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Beat in the vanilla extract, whipping cream and gradually beat in the milk until the desired consistency is reached.
  8. Remove the muffins from the oven when they are done baking. Check to see if they are done by inserting a toothpick into the center of one of the muffins. If it comes out clean, you're good to go. Well, clean of cake batter. You will probably get apple pie filling on the toothpick. :)
  9. Allow the muffins to cool for 15-20 minutes and then drizzle with the cream cheese glaze.
