Fast Fixin' Cake

I got this recipe from my dear late aunt.  She shared a number of wonderful recipes with me and I am happy to pass this one on.

1 cake mix (I usually use white, yellow or french vanilla)
1/4 c oil
2 eggs
1/2 c water
1 can pie filling (strawberry-rhubarb on one of our favorites as is blueberry, peach or cherry)

Variations - I also like spice cake mix with apple pie filling, or chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling.

Pour oil into a 9x13 pan.  Tilt pan to cover bottom.  I usually dip my finger in the oil and spread it up the sides as well.  Pour in dry cake mix.

Add eggs and water.

Stir until blended.

Scrape sides and spread batter in pan.

Spoon pie filling onto batter.

Fold in with fork.

Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Cool before slicing.

Enjoy! ;)

This is a quick, easy, delicious dessert that can be different each time you make it depending on the flavour of cake mix and pie filling you use.


  1. Wooweeee... that cake looks so good! I will be makin this soon. Chocolate cake & cherry pie filling sounds good to me. My husbands 40th b-day is Sunday so I seen this post just in time :)

  2. That looks very good, the only thing is I don't like to use boxed cake mixes, do you think it would work with a home made mix?

  3. Ms. Mayhem - You probably could. I haven't tried it yet but have thought about it. This is one of the few times I use cake mixes. Let me know how it works if you do try.
