Sometimes you need a quick & easy cake recipe…
This one uses just 4 ingredients and makes a moist, fluffy, fruity cake! All you do is mix together a cake mix, can of pie filling, 2 eggs and some vanilla extract! You can bake it as a 9” x 13” cake or 24 cupcakes! The cake is so moist, it doesn’t really need frosting, I sprinkled the 9” x 13” version with powdered sugar. For the cupcakes I did top with some vanilla buttercream and maraschino cherries!
Think of all the flavor combinations:
spice cake + apple pie filling
yellow cake + blueberry pie filling
strawberry cake + strawberry pie filling
I used Devil’s Food Cake + Cherry Pie Filling
Pie Filling Easy Cake Recipe:

Makes 9” x 13” cake or 24 cupcakes
1 (15.25-ounce) cake mix
1 (21-ounce) can pie filling
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare baking dish by spraying with nonstick baking spray or lining cupcake pan with paper liners.
Mix together cake mix, pie filling, eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined, but do not over mix.
(You want some of the fruit to remain whole, while some fruit pieces break down, adding great fruity flavor throughout the batter.)
Bake 9” x 13” pan for about 30-35 minutes or until springs back in center and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Bake cupcakes for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely then sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with you favorite frosting.
I use either my KitchenAid Hand Mixer with the turbo beaters or my KitchenAid Stand Mixer fitted with the flex edge beater to mix the batter. You could certainly mix by hand as well.
I have mixed a triple batch at one time in my KitchenAid Pro 600 6-quart Stand Mixer - It makes about 72 cupcakes.
