“This is a wonderful moist and full bodied cake. The frosting is creamy and very colorful.” - by Dave Loucks
Original recipe yields 1 -9inch round layer cake
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and lightly flour the bottom and sides of two 9 inch round cake pans.
- In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, egg whites, water and cranberry apple sauce. Mix on low speed until batter is moist. Then mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared pans.
- Bake cake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool cakes on wire racks in pans for 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans and let finish cooling on racks.
- To Make Frosting: In a medium sized bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, sugar and 1/2 of the whipped topping until smooth. Fold in the cranberry sauce and the remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate frosting until chilled. When cakes have cooled, frost the center and top of cake only. The frosting will be very soft.

"This was super easy. I could not find cranberry applesauce in the store so I mixed canned cranberries with applesauce. I am sure the use of the applesauce instead of oil makes the cake slightly lower..." See more in fat. I anticipated the frosting being overly soft...but it wasn't. I used it to frost the entire cake....and it held up fine. I used the jellied cranberry sauce for the frosting not the kind with the whole berries....maybe this made the difference."
"This recipe was easy, but the presentation was a huge disappointment. The frosting was much too soft to support the cake and went all over the place...." See more"
"I used a regular yellow cake mix and followed the directions on the box. I used a 9x13 pan. I also added another 8oz box of cream cheese. I did not increase the sugar. The frosting was nice and fi..." See morerm and would work great for a layered cake. I got rave reviews. It makes a lot of frosting, so I cut up apples and served them around a bowl of the extra frosting. My cake wasn't as calorie friendly as this one, but it was very good!"
