"Absolutely delicious! I used a butter pecan cake mix, the apple pie filling with 2 eggs and included a cup of pecans with in the cake mix. I then topped it off with 1/2 cup of pecans evenly distributed over the cake pan before putting it in the oven. So, so delicious. For an added topping, caramel topping can be dribbled in a zigzag pattern over the cake or individually when served to guests. I would recommend this recipe :)"

"Definitely a 5 star recipe - only changes are to use a 1/2 c of non fat greek yogurt instead of the oil and to mix in half of the pie filling when doing the inital mixing and then adding the reserved amount just before putting in the pan to have some larger chunks. This is my go to recipe every fall. My kids have grown up on it and now they make it to share with their friends and familes. Now that my husband is starting to watch his cholesterol, I may sub 3 egg whites for the 2 whole eggs as well :)"
