• 5 lbs. Basic Muffin, White Cake, or Yellow Cake
  • #10 can Fruit or Pie Filling
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbs. Cinnamon
  • Extra Cinnamon


  • Prepare baking pans (one 18 x 26 or four 9 x 13, with at least a 1 inch edge) by greasing and dusting with flour.
  • Sprinkle half the bag of the mix evenly in the pans.
  • Distribute the fruit and syrup in the can evenly over the mix. Lightly sprinkle or sift cinnamon over the fruit (just a light dusting for flavor).
  • Sprinkle remaining half of mix over the fruit.
  • This is the tricky part — if vacuum packed fruit or a very solid pack is used-extra water will need to be added. The mix/fruit/mix needs to be moist, but not wet or soggy.
  • The maximum water that should be added is 2 1/2 cups. Start by drizzling 1 cup over the surface and allow to soak in to the mix. Add more water if needed.
  • Using a fork mix brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon together. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the sheet pan.
  • Bake at 350° – 375°F for 20 – 30 minutes.
  • It can be served hot or cold.
