This moist spice cake from Sandra Castillo of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin is low in fat but full of flavor! "Apple pie filling is my secret ingredient," she writes. "For a fun variation, try it with a chocolate cake mix and cherry pie filling...or yellow cake mix and peach filling."

  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
