This was way to sweet (and I like sweet). Next time I will use the unsweetened pie filling and either use 2 cans of filling or reduce cake mix to 1/2. I also think the oven would to a better job than the slow cooker.
I have varied tastes to provide for, so I used two different kinds of pie filling. I made a "pan divider" out of folded tin foil to split my 9 x 13" pan in half. I poured a can of blueberry on one side, and a can of cherry pie filling on the other. After I added my cake mix crumbs, I removed the divider and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Everyone's happy! It IS sweet, but my husband has a (very) sweet tooth - and he liked it.
Made the recipe in a 3 quart with 2 cans of filling, cooked almost 3 hours but still looked "raw". Next time I will make it with enough time to use a backup.
This is a five star recipe for sure....easy to make, easy to take along, taste wonderful to young and old alike. I have enjoyed it for years, and have never been disapointed with the results. We like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to guild the lilly.
Also need 3 hours on low, not 2 hours.
