4 Ingredient Dessert
Like to have baked goods in your house? Work full-time and can't be bothered to bake most days? I've got the solution for you. A four ingredient dessert that's easy peasy!
1 instant cake mix, any flavour. (I happened to use marble as that was what was in my cupboard.)
A can of fruit pie filling. (Any flavour)
1/2 brick of cream cheese
Mix the dry cake mix with the eggs. Add in the can of fruit bit by bit while mixing on high speed. Pour cake mix in a rectangle greased baking pan.
Cut up cream cheese into small cubes. Push cubes into the cake mix so they are buried sporadically throughout the pan.
Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Use a toothpick to test doneness if you are uncertain.
Once cooled, ice with an appropriate icing that suites the cake. I happened to use cream cheese icing for this particular cake.
**Some combinations might be Chocolate or Devil's Food Cake with Cherry filling, or Spice cake with Apple filling, lemon cake with Raspberry filling, Vanilla cake with Strawberry/Rhubarb filling. My suggestion is, of course, to try them all! You kids will love you for it.
