My friend April posted a recipe on her Facebook that I thought sounded interesting. It said to mix a can of fruit pie filling with a box of angel food cake, and then bake it. That was it — just mix the two together and nothing more. Sounded pretty good to me, so I bought the ingredients last night. Then I went online to see if I could find another recipe similar to that one. I found this recipe for Gooey Blueberry Angel Food Cake.
We weren't doing anything special today for the 4th of July, so I thought I'd make this cake to keep things simple. It turned out really good. Mind you I took this picture right after I took it out of the oven. Within a few minutes the cake had sunk down, but the recipe said that was normal. The only thing I was missing was some whipped cream, which would have made it perfect. Even a small scoop of vanilla ice cream would be nice. However, it was fine just the way it was. Just remember to buy the angel food mix that doesn't require any other ingredients added to it. All you do is mix the fruit filling with the dry mix. That's it! Then you bake it for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. It doesn't get any easier than that. The recipe said to use an ungreased 9x13" pan, but I went ahead and sprayed mine with cooking spray just to be safe. It turned out really good and was so simple that it was ridiculous. I'm looking forward to trying it with other fruit fillings, and maybe even adding some fresh fruit in there, too.
Happy 4th of July!
