So another Pinterest cake. You can’t really call it a recipe when it is only 2 things. The idea and picture on Pinterest is for an apple cinnamon cake. I didn’t have apple pie filling in a tin, so I substituted raspberry. And that is it Angel Food cake mix and a tin of pie filling mixed together. I have heard you can also use crushed pineapple instead of the pie filling.
I was getting worried at this stage, would the batter be dry with lumps of pie filling every so often?
But it did mix in and became a pink batter that filled a 9 x 13 greased pan.
The instructions said to bake for 20 minutes or until the top turned golden. I think mine was in for about 30 minutes at 350 F.
It rose above the pan and was kind of ..wobbly. It smelled very good. I could smell almonds, which is weird.
It was not really pretty and almost as soon as I took the picture it kind of deflated. The flavour is good, very strong raspberry. The texture is …sticky and there are the seeds… The whole thing shrunk away from the edges of the pan and it is a bit heavy. So, not the nicest cake to take to a potluck. But I am thinking if you cut it into chunks and made it into a trifle it would be lovely. Anything is improved by the addition of Birds custard. I should have made some. Also I think the apple version would be better, more of a breakfast cake. Should those words even be together?
Mr Murfin liked it enough to have 2 pieces, but then cake and Mr Murfin are best friends.
I’ll wait for the trifle.
Thrifty Thursday will be back next week. I did get some good finds, but failed to take any pictures.
This weekend the weather is to turn to spring. There is a layer of snow this morning but I heard double digits for Sunday, so I hope to have garden pictures. little green sprouts are everywhere. I saw a robin the other day. The size of a small chicken, must be a hardy one.
Ta ta for now!
