Can this be made with cherry pie filling without the cinnamon nutmeg?

Hello again! Yes, this can be made with cherry pie filling without the cinnamon nutmeg. Enjoy!

This sounds and looks tasty so I have pinned for later. Thanks for the recipe!

I have a similar recipe but use the whole can of pie filling. I don't take it out of the can to slice the apples. I just run a sharp knife through the fill while it's in the can Usually just quarter the pieces. I use the whole can in the cake. Also throw some chopped walnuts on the batter before baking. I am going to try this recipe because this apple spice cake sounds different with the jelly. Apple spice cake is one of my luncheon groups favorite.
