What you’ll need:
1 1/2 Cups Spice OR Pumpkin Cake Mix (I used Pumpkin Cake Mix that I had hanging around)
4 tbsp. Melted Butter
1 Cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
A 8x8x2″ Pan..sprayed!
THE GINGER SNAP CRUST:
1 1/2 Cups crushed/powdered Ginger Snap Crumbs
3 tbsp. Melted Butter
THE DUTCH CRUMBLE TOPPING:
3/4 Cups Flour
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tbsp. Cinnamon
1/3 Cup cold butter (cubed)
In a medium bowl mix together the Cake Mix, Water, Eggs, and 4 tbsp. Melted Butter..combine well, set aside!
In another medium bowl combine the Ginger Snap Crumbs with the 3 tbsp. Melted Butter and using your fingers, make an even bottom crust in the pan. Bake the crust at 350 degrees for 5 minutes!
After the crust has baked for 5 minutes, pour the Cake Batter into the HOT pan, on top of the HOT crust…
Spurtle up that rich, thick Musselman’s Apple Butter…
…and evenly swirl it into the batter, being very careful not to scrape the bottom crust with your fork…
Put it back into the oven for 25 more minutes.
While it’s baking prepare the Dutch Crumble Topping, by combining the Flour, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon & Butter. Cut the butter into the flour/sugar until you have a sand-like consistency …
At 25 minutes, add the Dutch Crumb Topping onto the par-baked batter…
Finish baking it for approx. another 25 minutes, or until the topping is golden, let it cool VERY WELL before slicing it up…
You will LOVE the gorgeous layers of Fall colors and flavors…
Serve it up…
Grab a plate all for you! ~Enjoy! 🙂
