Five Ingredient Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

I Love Apple Season! Maybe it is the Michigander in me, but once football season starts, I sure do get a hankering to make cobblers, stews, and casseroles. Granted, it is still in the 80's right now in North Carolina but I did see a few leaves in my pool so that counts, right? I have never used a boxed cake mix before with my cobblers but I had a box of Glutino Gluten-Free Old Fashioned Yellow Cake Mix in my pantry and a bunch of gala apples and decided to give it a try. It was a big hit in the house! I will definitely be making this recipe again:


  • 6 apples (I used gala apples)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix (I used Glutino's GF Old Fashioned Yellow Cake Mix)
  • 1 stick of butter
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Peel the skin off of your apples and thinly slice them. Place sliced apples in a bowl with the cinnamon and sugar and stir apples until they are coated with the cinnamon and sugar.

Place the apple mixture in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover the top of the apples with the yellow cake mix. Melt the stick of butter and pour over the cake mix. Make sure to take a spoon and spread the butter so it coats over all of the cake mix.

Bake for 45-50 minutes. Enjoy alone or with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.


  1. Do you mix the cake mix or put it on dry?

    1. Hello! You put the cake mix on dry & then drizzle the butter over it. The mix will only brown where the butter has been (gives it more of the traditional look). Hope you enjoy it!

  2. Can honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar be used in place of the sugar?

    1. I'm sure you can! The ratio of sugar to honey would be the same. Let me know which one you go with, I would love to hear.
