ARE YOU KIDDING CAKE

I have named this cake appropriately because that's what people say when they ask for the recipe. I have an Amish friend named Rosie. She gave me this recipe one day and I didn't believe her at first. I thought she surely forgot an ingredient or two. But, she didn't. This is a moist cake and tasty. No icing is needed so it makes a nice lunchbox dessert.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We can see why this dessert is named what it is. When people ask you how you made it and you tell them, they're going to say are you kidding me! We love how this is made with three ingredients (that are probably in the pantry already) and you can mix and match different boxed cake and pie filling flavors. We opted for lemon cake mix and blueberry pie filling and went with the extra inch on the hips version. The cake is nice and fluffy. The bits of cream cheese you get add a punch of tangy flavor. Get creative and try a version that suits your taste buds. Top with a bit of extra pie filling and a dollop of whipped cream for a yummy treat. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make ARE YOU KIDDING CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather your ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, dump dry cake mix, eggs, and pie filling. Stir together until well mixed.
  3. Pour into a greased 9x13. For an extra inch to the hips, chop room temp cream cheese into chunks. Poke the chunks randomly into the batter after pouring it into the baking pan. Make sure the cheese is in deep.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or test with a toothpick for doneness.
  5. NOTE: Pair flavors of cake mix and pie filling. Apple filling with maybe butter pecan cake mix. Cherry pie filling with a devil's food cake mix, etc. I enjoy a pineapple cake mix with blueberry filling. I do this with a strawberry cake mix and strawberry filling and also blueberry filling.
