Servings
19″ x 13″ Cake, 24 cupcakes or two 8-inch round layers
Ingredients
  • 115.25-ounce cake mix
  • 121-ounce can pie fillingUse traditional pie filling, not the newer “simply” version.
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare baking dish by spraying with nonstick baking spray or lining cupcake pan with paper liners.
  3. Mix together cake mix, pie filling, eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined, but do not over mix. (The batter will be thick.)
  4. (You want some of the fruit to remain whole, while some fruit pieces break down, adding great fruity flavor throughout the batter.)
  5. Bake 9” x 13” pan for about 30-35 minutes or until springs back in center and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Bake cupcakes for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. You can use the cake mix box directions as a general guideline for baking times. I always check on it early and see if it’s set in the center.
  8. Allow to cool completely then sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with you favorite frosting.
Recipe Notes

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.

A Note on Types of Pie Filling: Traditional Style Pie Filling works best for this recipe. The newer “Simply” style of pie filling did not work well in the cake. The cake did not rise and the edges caved in. Stick with the traditional style of pie filling.

For Layer Cake, I used two 8″ rounds
