3-Ingredient desserts? YES!
The Basic Ingredients:
2 regular cans (or a large 29 ounce can) fruit, like peaches – undrained OR 1-2 cans pie filling
1 box of yellow or white cake mix
at least 1 stick of butter or margarine, sliced into pats
The Optional Ingredients:
Vanilla Ice Cream
I will take a picture of this next time. It was SO easy and SO good!
PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees.
GREASE a 9×13 pan with butter or margarine
POUR fruit/pie filling into pan. (BTW, many recipes say to use peaches in heavy syrup, but I only had peaches in juice. It worked great!)
COVER with dry cake mix. Create an even(ish) layer and pat down.
PLACE pats of butter over dry cake mix in even rows.
BAKE 35 – 45 minutes. The top should be turning a nice brown and the filling should be bubbly.
REST cake for at least 5 minutes before serving. Top with ice cream, whipped cream, or cinnamon.
I’ve broken down the steps for this recipe, but really you grease the pan, dump in the filling, top with cake, add butter and bake. It takes minutes to prepare and smells AMAZING while it bakes.
Some recipes call for pouring Sprite over the dry cake instead of using pats of butter. Also, some people melt 1/2 cup of butter, combine the cake mix and butter into a crumbly mixture, and then sprinkle the crumble onto the filling.
In addition to traditional flavors (peach, apple), this recipe is fun to play around with.
What about Butter Pecan cake mix with Carmel Apple pie filling?
Or sub in fresh or frozen fruit (2 – 5 cups) and create a blueberry (or mixed berry) cobbler!
Cherry-Pineapple could be a lovely combination in the summer! You could even use Pineapple cake mix.
