Preparation Directions


HEAT oven to 375°F. Place 1/4 cup butter in each of 2 (9-inch) round baking pans. Bake 5 minutes or until melted. Tilt pans to coat bottoms of pans with butter. Add 1/3 cup brown sugar to each pan, sprinkling evenly. Arrange apple slices in prepared pans, beginning in center of pans and working out, slightly overlapping slices to create a spiral pattern. Set aside.


BEAT applesauce, milk, oil and eggs in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Add cake mix and cinnamon. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes.


SPOON batter evenly into prepared pans. Spread evenly. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Invert cakes onto serving platters. Cool completely. Serve with whipped topping, if desired.
