I thought I would try this 2-ingredient cake that is making the rounds on Facebook. It takes only an Angel Food Cake Mix, and a can of fruit pie filling.
It was so easy to mix up, this is one recipe you could teach your 5 year old to make: Cake Baking 101.
I used peach pie filling, but any fruit filling may be used. Apple or blackberry are suggestions I want to try.
Yes, I will be making this one again!

How to Make Easiest Cake Ever!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9 x 13" cake pan.
    The cake mix should be the type that you just add water to - but don't add the water. The fruit pie filling can be any flavor you like.
  2. Stir together the cake mix and pie filling until all is totally combined. It will look really dry at first, but gets moister the more you stir. Do not add any water or liquid. Scrape the bottom and sides of bowl often to be sure you mix everything. I mixed mine by hand. If you use an electric mixer, it will cut up the fruit some, but that won't matter.
  3. Pour and spread in prepared pan. Bake 22-27 minutes, until top springs back when lightly touched. Mine took 25 minutes.
  4. Cool in pan 20 minutes before cutting. Serve with topping of your choice, such as ice cream, whipped cream, or more fruit topping. Or serve plain for a great coffee cake.
    It may also be served warm right from the oven, but will not cut into neat squares if so. But who cares, the flavor is awesome!
  5. NUTRITION INFORMATION
    This cake is high in carbohydrate and sugars, so it is not really "diet" friendly; however, it is fat free.
