I love fun recipes like this so much! I was stumbling around the world wide web the other night and I saw a recipe for Are You Kidding Cake. It totally intrigued me and got my attention. So, I clicked and looked. 1 cake mix, 1 can pie filling, 3 eggs. That is it! Nothing more, nothing less! Thus the name are you kidding? People just don’t believe it can be that easy.
Well, I forgot where I saw it, so I am sorry I am not giving credit where it is due. However, the recipe was so easy to remember I wanted to give it a shot. So I got out a Lemon cake mix and a can of blueberry filling. Sounded like a great combo. I mixed them up, tossed them in the oven and twiddled my thumbs for about 25-30 minutes. The batter was thicker, almost like a brownie mix, so I was expecting a dense cake. I was astonished when I opened the oven to find this fluffy moist cake! Are you kidding?? ~giggle~
The cake is fluffy, moist, and not a bit crumbly. You can put frosting on it, but it is great without. Perfect to pack in a lunchbox. I will be making this cake again in a gazillion different combos. I am so excited to find new flavors to try. If you don’t have a cake mix, try this Homemade Cake Mix Recipe.
