So, by now, everyone has probably heard of the cherpumple (cherry pie, pumpkin pie, apple pie baked inside cakes, and stacked on top of each other). So, this year for Thanksgiving, I decided to try my hand at this new classic. Okay, well actually, I cheated and decided only to do a spice cake with an apple pie baked in it. So, I guess I will call mine pake or pie cake since it is not a true cherpumple.

I started with mixing up my spice cake like I normally would. Then after greasing the pan, I poured some of the cake into the pan (enough to cover the bottom). Then, I took an already-baked pie out of its tin and placed it in the cake pan. (I cheated again here, since I bought the pie instead of baking it myself... oh well.) Then, I proceeded to pour the rest of the batter in over the pie. Now, I typically over fill the cake pan in order to cover the pie, I bake the cake on a cookie sheet, in case of any spillage.  
Then, I slide my "pake" into the over at 350 for a little over an hour. I know my oven at home takes forever, but just bake it until your fork comes out clean. As you can see, I did have some cake spill over, but that's okay because it just spilled on the cookies sheet.
After the cake has cooled, I iced it and served it. I prefer to serve the cake a little warm, so you might want to warm it in the microwave before eating! ENJOY!
