This 2-ingredient apple cake couldn’t be any easier. All you have to do is combine a couple of ingredients and pop it into the oven.
Then when it’s done, serve it warm. It is so good! We really enjoy it after having this chili con carne because it offers the sweet balance to the spiciness.
I know that a lot of people make 2 or 3-ingredient cakes. One of the differences with mine is that I use gluten-free cake mix.
However, if you don’t have an issue with gluten, I highly recommend using a regular cake mix. It’s much less expensive than the gluten-free versions.
2-Ingredient Apple Cake for the Win
If you’re looking for something super easy, then you need to try this cake recipe. For one thing, you only need a couple of ingredients that you may already have in your pantry.
Another thing is if you have last-minute guests, this is the perfect snack to serve. Whether they call in advance or show up on your doorstep unannounced, you can excuse yourself for 5 minutes.
Then go into the kitchen and whip this up. Since it takes practically no time to make, no one will know what you’re doing unless you tell them.
As it bakes, you’ll enjoy the aroma of apples wafting through your house. Your guests will think you’re the most brilliant host ever.
The only things you need to make this cake are cake mix and apple pie filling.
You can also add cinnamon and frost it with cream cheese frosting. Or if you don’t have cream cheese frosting, you can top it with ice cream or whipped cream.
How to Make a 2-Ingredient Apple Cake
Combine a yellow cake mix with a couple of cans of apple pie filling. Mix it well.
Pour the mixture into a greased pan, smooth it out, and bake it until it’s done.
I added cinnamon to the mixture before baking it, but it’s not necessary. I also topped it with cream cheese frosting after it cooled.
However, it’s delicious any way you eat it. You can serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Or you can serve it as-is. It’s certainly moist and delicious enough to stand alone.
If you decide to frost the cake, use either canned frosting or this insanely delicious cream cheese frosting. I’ve found that all of the recipes from the Back to My Southern Roots blog are wonderful.
