Easy, Frugal, No Waste Yummy Bite!

 We all like easy, frugal and not wasting.  I saw an acquaintance on FB post a recipe she tried, and I figured I had to give it a try.  Well, let me say - this will be my use it up go to recipe for a tasty sweety bite from now on!

Seriously you need to give this a try.
I used an older box of cake mix and a very much past 'best by' date of pie filling!  I smelled it, tasted and all was good.  So I used it.

Here is the easy-peasy cake!
1 box cake mix
1 can pie filling (home canned or store bought)
3 eggs
Mix together and follow the instructions for baking that were on the cake mix box.
THAT'S IT!

                                              I used yellow cake and raspberry pie filling.

Probably not the prettiest color of cake - but it sure is tasty.  Very moist, yet light and has a nice hint of raspberry taste.  I didn't ice the cake - just used a little whip cream on top.  The 2nd piece was eaten plain!!!!!  LOL!  Yes, it was that good.

Think of the possibilities.
Spice cake mix with apple or peach fruit
Chocolate mix with cherry or any berry
White/yellow mix - no limit to what pie fillings you could use

Yes indeed, I will be doing this again.  I still have a few cakes mixes I got for next to nothing that need used, and I have lots of different pie fillings - both home canned pints and store bought.

Great way to use up those past date items, it saves money on snacks, and it does taste soooooo good.  You can't eat just one piece!
Give it a try and ENJOY!

  1. made raspberry pies yesterday. I've never seen raspberry pie filling in the store. Your recipe is similar to the dump cakes where canned fruit is added to a cake mix.

    1. I got the raspberry at Aldi. Yes, similar - just no butter and only uses one can of filling.
      I love raspberry pie!

  2. That definitely sounds easy. I'll have to check the cupboard for cake mixes, but I'm pretty sure I don't have any pie filling. What I do have are several apples that are starting to wrinkle. They'll work, I'm sure!

  3. Sounds yummy, and I do need to bake soon. I tried your dump cake recipe, but Husband found the topping hard to eat. I think he'll have no trouble with this. LOL at how you used "a little" whipped cream!

  5. Thanks for this! I have about a half can of cherry pie filling, leftover from the cheesecakes I made for my mom's birthday. Think I'll use it up with a Jiffy cake mix I have on hand. Yummy for dessert tonite!

  6. I don't eat sugar but this would be great to bring to a dinner, you could sprinkle powdered sugar on top for pretty. Thank you for sharing!

    1. It depends according to what your cake mix box says. I used a 9 x 13. Box tells baking temps and times for the size pan. Bake according to box.

  8. Yum! I wrote this one down. Easy peasy and the combinations are endless. Raspberry is my favorite but I don't know if I've ever seen it.

  12. Several years ago, I poured prepared chocolate cake mix over a can of cherry pie filling. It was like chocolate covered cherries!
