Magic Cake

For each petal on the shamrock.
This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

The chemistry involved in baking sometimes eludes me. I am sure if I could consult with Alton Brown (Food Network Star The Science Guy) he would be able to solve this baking mystery. The church ladies gave me a cake recipe which I have titled Magic Cake. They said all I needed to do was follow the instructions carefully, bake in a jelly roll pan, don't frost the cake and bring cake to the church dinner show on Sunday. Now here's the mystery; there are only three ingredients in this recipe:cake mix, pie filling and 4 large eggs. I shook my head not quite understanding how this could possibly work. 
But it all came together perfectly even though I did cheat and sprinkled in some magic leprechaun dust right before the pan went in the oven for good luck.
Magic Cake-Lemon Bars
Cook's note: Be creative use any flavor cake mix combined with any pie filling flavoring and variety of cake toppings. Make sure cake mixture is level in jelly roll pan for even baking
  • 1 box of lemon cake mix
  • 1 can Wilderness Lemon Pie Filling
  • 4 large eggs
  • Mix cake mix and pie filling together
  • Beat 4 eggs lightly in a separate bowl and stir into cake mixture
  • Pour into greased jelly roll pan
  • Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes-test with toothpick
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost using your favorite frosting
Hard to believe this really worked. Now consider all the possibilities with this super easy cake recipe that even a wee little one could put together.
