Chunky Applesauce Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Recipe Type : Dessert, Cake Author: Mary Ellen Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 1 hour 10 mins Total time: 1 hour 30 mins Serves: Serves 12 Homemade applesauce with a spice cake mix topped with a cream cheese topping. Served with homemade caramel sauce.
  • Homemade Applesauce
  • 6 - 8 apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Cake Layer
  • 1 Spice cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Cream Cheese Topping
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups confectionery sugar
  • ½ cup butter at room temperature
  1. Peel apples. Dice and put in a pan with sugar, water and cinnamon. Mix together. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Let cool. I set mine over ice to cool it quickly. Can also be made ahead.
  2. Combine cake mix, egg and butter with an electric mixer. Pat into a lightly greased 9 x 13 x 2 pan.
  3. Top with the apple mixture. You need 5 cups of the applesauce.
  4. Next, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth, add eggs and vanilla. Add confectionery sugar. Mix well. Pour over the apple mixture and spread evenly.
  5. Bake at 350* for 60 minutes. It should remain a little gooey in the center. Cool completely and cut into squares. I baked mine at 325 and it took just over an hour. I started checking it at 45 minutes.
If baking in a glass pan bake at 325 instead of 350.
