Easy Peasy Apple Cake!

Not really sure why this post took me a million years to post.  Perhaps my time management skills have taken a vacation as of late.  This is the easiest recipe in my book.  Seriously, you could pay your kid to make it.  So easy.

Here’s what you need:

A couple of apples sliced into thinnish slices.  Enough to cover the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

stick of butter

box of ready made cake mix like Pilsbury, Duncan Hines, or Betty Crocker – vanilla type flavors work best or anything that goes well with apples.

Lay out the apples in the pan

Cover with dry cake mix

Pour melted butter over the top

Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees

You won’t believe how incredible this tastes!  It’s great with a scoop of ice cream!  A little tip, check on it while it’s baking, if you see any dry spots just add a little water to that spot.  The moisture from the apples should come through most of it, but sometimes you get a few dry spots.

Let me know what you think!

Come holiday time you can mix together angel food cake mix and apple pie filling from the can, bake for 30 minutes or so at 350 degrees or until the top is brown.

3-2-1 cake!

I love cake but with just my husband and I to consume it, making a whole cake seems excessive. So I’ve got this great way to make a single serving of cake. It gives us the cake fix without a million calories looming before us!!

Here’s what you need:

1 box angel food cake mix
1 box any flavor cake mix
Coffee mug or bowl
Water

In an airtight container mix the two boxes of mix together.

Take 3 tablespoons of mix and 2 tablespoons of water in a coffee mug or bowl that you can microwave. Mix together-it will be a frothy consistency.

You can add any toppings you want.

You see where the 3-2-1 comes from? 3 tablespoons cake mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in the microwave!

I used chocolate but you can use any flavor you want. Just make sure that one box is angel food cake. It’s great to have the mix on hand because if you have someone stop over you can make them a quick impressive dessert!

I wish I had figured this out during my pregnancy. I always craved marble “birthday” cake and I could have just made it in one minute!!!

If you guys try a different flavor please tell me!! I want to try red velvet or lemon next.

Bon apetit!
