Well I followed the instructions ... can of pie filling on the bottom of the DCB, a box of cake mix on top, 1-1/2 sticks of butter (YIKES) cut into small pieces on top.

10 minutes on High in the microwave (covered), still everything together, 3 more minutes in the microwave.

Let it sit covered for 10 minutes ...

Boy was that a gummy mess. Not quite the consistency of a breadpudding. Not quite a cake. Sorta gummy. Naw, VERY gummy.

What should I have expected?

I wouldn't let it sit covered after you take it out - that probably made all the moisture settle on the cake and made it gummy. I just make sure it's relatively dry on top before I take it out the last time, and then I serve right away with ice cream.

When I made it with butter, I only used 1 stick (here in Canada that would be a 1/2 cup, I believe).
I've since tried it with a can of Sprite instead of the butter (I don't know if Diet Sprite would work...), and it's just as good, perhaps a smoother texture yet.

A can of Sprite? I've been trying to figure out how to make this lighter... I'll have to try a can of sprite!!

When I make this, I only use one stick of butter. I put the apple pie filling on the bottom, sprinkle the entire white cake mix over that. I melt the butter first, and then pour it as evenly as possible over the cake mix. 13 minutes in the microwave WITHOUT stirring at all!! When it comes out, it's not gooey - the topping is more like a crust. It's really good!!!

I think I'll try it with sprite today!!

I have made this in a regular oven, but you don't stir it. It's just a cobbler and the cake mix and butter on top make a cakey crumb top.

Someone made one at our sales meeting last week and they didn't stir. It was yummy.

Yes, I make it without stirring, too. I prefer the top to get golden brown so I put mine in the oven. It stays nice & hot for hours after. It is a big hit at work.

I've had these a few times at sales meetings and personally I think they taste pretty nasty. But then, I'm also a cake snob and I can't stand a cake mix and I don't like the texture of the cakes cooked in the microwave.
