I found this recipe online and I had to try it out. A moist, delicious, and most importantly endlessly creative cake with only 3 ingredients? It had to be a scam.
The person who posted this recipe claims she got it from an Amish woman, which means that you don’t need any fancy mixers to prepare it. So I sent my mother out to get the 3 ingredients and, curious to see if it would actually make something, she obliged. The 3 ingredients are:
- 3 large eggs
- 1 box cake mix (any flavor)
- 1 can pie filling (any flavor)
I chose yellow cake mix and peach pie filling, but you can actually choose, for example, yellow cake mix and cherry pie filling and the cake will come out pink! Check it out:
You can also choose blueberry pie filling and the cake comes out blue or chocolate cake mix and the cake comes out, well, chocolate.
The recipe claims that the cake comes out so moist and so delicious that you don’t even need to frost it.
So, then, the recipe says you put the three ingredients into a bowl, mix them well, and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. The whole thing from prep to clean-up took me 10 minutes. Pretty awesome if the cake comes out well.
When I took the cake out of the oven, it looked like this:
I let it cool and took myself a piece:
It’s freaking delicious! It’s got almost a pudding-cake kind of consistency, lighter than pound cake. It’s spotted on the inside with little pieces of peaches. The edges are crispy, like you would get on brownies.
Amazing. The cost of the ingredients is under $6 and the cook time from prep to clean-up can be as little as 10 minutes. Also, you can combine cake mix and pie filling flavors to make tons of different creative cakes. Some interesting cakes to try in the future:
- Pineapple cake mix and blueberry filling
- Chocolate cake mix and cherry filling
