Barefoot in the Kitchen (Vol 5)

Welcome to fifth post of Barefoot in the Kitchen!

The recipe I am posting about this week is sheer genius. For starters, you can  make it with just two ingredients (unless you include a glaze, which I did). What's that you say? Impossible? Wrong! Another fantastic part of this recipe is that you can make it with virtually any pie filling! But I'm getting ahead of myself.....
Apple Angel Cake with Caramel Glaze

Prep Time : 5 - 10 minutes

Cook Time : 35 - 40 minutes

Servings : 12 - 16

Ingredients :
  •  Pie filling (I used apple but you can use any filling you like!)
  • Angel food cake mix (just the mix - no egg, oil, etc. needed)

Step 1. Turn your oven to 350. Mix the pie filling of your choice with the angel food cake mix in a bowl. 

Step 2. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 pan

Step 3. Cook for 30 - 45 minutes (cook time can vary a great deal depending on oven)

Step 4. (Optional) Wait until the cake has cooled and add glaze of your choice. I was torn between a cinnamon and caramel glaze but ended up going with the latter. I am sure the cake would taste great even without the glaze but I loved what it added. The next time I make this recipe I plan on using a blueberry pie filling and either a vanilla or lemon glaze. Can't wait!!!

Step 5. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream
Caramel Glaze

Ingredients :
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Verdict : Success! The only thing I might change in the future is instead of using a can of pie filling I would probably make it from scratch. The can of apple pie filling we used was tasty but could have used a bit more apple and maybe a dash of lemon for a sharper flavor. Enjoy!
