  • Pour half of the cake mix into the baking dish and spread. Add half of the crumble and distribute evenly.
  • Pour in remaining cake mix, one spoon at a time, and gently spread. Finish with the filling on top.
  • Place in the oven and bake 40 minutes or until the cake is cooked and a toothpick comes out dry when poked in the center. Remove the oven and let cool 20 minutes before cutting and eating!
