Easy Autumn Apple Cake
By Kelli A. Wilkins

This easy-to-make apple cake has lots of flavor and is the perfect snack for the fall season.

1 package Yellow cake mix
1 (21 oz.) can of apple pie filling
3 eggs
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease the cake pan. (For this recipe, I prefer to use a Bundt cake pan.)

Prepare the cake mix according to the box directions. Add spices and stir well. Pour cake mix into the pan, then add the apple pie filling to the batter. (Note: Apples will sink.)
Bake according to box directions (approximately 34-36 min.) Check cake to make sure it doesn’t overcook. Let cool and remove from the cake pan. Apples will usually be on the top of the cake (almost like a pineapple upside down cake).

If you like your cake extra spicy, add more nutmeg or cloves. You can also substitute the spices listed with 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice.

Want to use fresh apples? Substitute the apple pie filling with 2 large apples, peeled and sliced ½ to ¼ inch thick.

This moist and flavorful cake needs no frosting. You can add a dollop of whipped cream on the side or top of the cake when serving, or serve with vanilla ice cream.
To celebrate the Halloween season, I’m sharing a look at my horror novella, Dead ‘Til Dawn.

Dead ‘Til Dawn

Disturbing the dead doesn’t prove you’re brave – it proves you’re stupid.
After touring Gettysburg battlefield, Jessica, Tim, and Steve decide to sneak out to the Devil’s Den for some late-night fun. Jessica’s friend Kathy objects, and warns them about trespassing where they’re not wanted.

Undaunted by ghost stories and fueled by his own arrogance, Tim races toward the Devil’s Den. When the group drives through mysterious battlefield fog, they find themselves surrounded by Civil War soldiers looking for a little fun of their own.

Kathy leaves the others to fend for themselves and flees to Little Round Top. Although she’s rescued by a kindhearted Union solider named Charlie, she refuses to believe that what she’s experiencing is real. As the nighttime battle rages on, Charlie introduces Kathy to other weary soldiers, and she quickly realizes she’s trapped in the land of the dead until dawn.
