Easy Smeezy Apple Muffins

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Anyone can make these 4-ingredient muffins that begin with a cake mix.

The slight dent in the top is an apple slice.

Easy Smeezy Apple Muffins are made with a cake mix.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 21 ounce can apple pie filling*
  • 18 ounce yellow, white, lemon or spice cake mix*
  • Optional: Freshly ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or paper-line 18** muffin cups. Combine eggs, sour cream and apple pie filling. Add cake mix, but don't over mix. Place batter in muffin cups***. Sprinkle tops with optional cinnamin. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing. Serve warm with real butter.

*Flavor variations are only limited by your imagination and what's in the grocery store.
**I made 12 large muffins and one small loaf pan. It all baked at the same time.
***Be sure that there is at least one apple slice in every cup.
****Final note: As there is no added fat, the muffins are a bit sticky, but they still taste wonderful.
