“This is a delicious German recipe.” - by Cathy
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Peel, core, and cut each apple into 8 wedges. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, coconut and margarine until crumbly. Pat mixture lightly into prepared pan, building up the edges slightly to form a crust. Arrange the apple wedges on top.
- Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the apples and the cake mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and sour cream. Drizzle over the top of the cake.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until the edges of the cake are golden and the apples are tender.

"I have been using this recipe since I found it in a Betty Crocker ad in Woman's Day when I was 9 (which would have been 32 years ago). However, that recipe was slightly different, calling for double ..." See morethe amount of butter/margarine (1 stick, or 1/2 up) and 1 cup of coconut. Using that much butter helps to get it out of the pan (I never grease the pan, per the recipe). Also, it had you prebake the crust for 10 minutes, and slicing the apples more thinly (which helps with making sure the apples cook all the way). Fat free sour cream works just fine, and patting it LIGHTLY (the crust) into the pan is critical, as noted in other reviews. It is important to watch that it does not overcook, as that also makes it hard to get out of the pan, while undercooking means it won't hold together. It is really not hard, and it is fast and impressive. I have not met anyone who didn't lvoe this dessert!"
"Fast & yummy! I used white cake mix b/c I didn't have any yellow on hand. I also had to add a touch of orange jce to get the cake mixture "crumbly". I used toasted coconut b/c I already had some made ..." See moreup and it worked great! The apples turned out a bit firm but if I would have baked it any longer the crust would have have gotten too brown. But it was delicious. I am taking it to work tomorrow but I DO NOT want the leftover in my house. It's addicting! :)"
"I completely omitted the sugar in this recipe. I added a little more cinnamon and some fresh ground nutmeg. Instead of Granny Smiths I used about 6 Red Delicious Apples and it turned out wonderful!!..." See more Instead of using coconut because of the high sugar content, I added finely chopped walnuts to give it the same texture. Even without the sugar and coconut, my family still found the dessert almost too sweet. It was very easy and versatile!!!"
