3. Fangtasia. (This was tricky! Notice I saw ‘vampire’ bar, not ‘the bar.’ Hehehe.)


Those who qualified are:







If I missed anyone, please let me know!

Thanks for playing! We have one more round next week to win Martha’s cookie book!



This is the simplest, tastiest chocolate cake ever. It takes about 5 minutes to make, 35 to bake, and 1 second to devour. It is incredible – mostly because it is super-easy.



This recipe comes from my other grandmother (not Mother Lovett), who I haven’t really touched upon too much on the blog yet.


The reason I haven’t? The words can’t come without the floodgates opening. Thankfully she is still living, and very healthy.


She is perfect. There are no other words. She is the perfect wife. The perfect mother. The perfect grandmother.


She is the sweetest soul, and spins everything with a positive twist. She is also gorgeous!


She is the classiest woman I know. I have always been very close to her and felt that we had a very special bond. I will write much more about her at a later date, since this is just the tip of the iceberg.


But she makes this cake. It is so incredible.


And easy. Did I already say that?



Check out how easy this is. 3 ingredients only.



Devils Food cake mix.





A can of apple pie filling.




And 3 eggs.



Does it even get any easier than that?



Mix it all up.



So simple!


Pour it into a 9 x 13 pan and bake away. I followed the directions on the box for baking times.



This beauty is born.




Yes, there is apple pie filling in the cake. No, it does not taste like apples at all. The apple pie filling gives an unbelieveable moistness to the cake. There may be a few chunks of apple depending on how much you mix it, but they still taste like chocolate.


I used a ‘light’ apple pie filling to lighten the cake up a bit. It tasted phenomenal. I am sure that it tastes even better with regular apple pie filling. It is your choice – make it your own!






We finished you off in 2 days. Please make more of your self so we can enjoy you again.





Simple, Moist Chocolate Cake

1 box Devils Food cake mix

1 20 oz can of apple pie filling

3 eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla (I added this in)


Optional add ins: nuts, chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350.

Using the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, apple pie filling, vanilla and eggs. Mix on medium-high for 2 1/2 minutes. Fold in any additional add-ins. Pour into 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

Bake according to directions on box.



Frosting is optional here. My grandmother does frost this cake. It was so light and fluffy, that I just could bear to frost it and weigh it down, even with a light frosting.

We ate it like brownies.

We ate it like we were children.

We ate it in 24 hours.




See how incredibly easy that is?




You can’t pass it up.




Sure it is light and fluffy, but when you eat the entire dish like we did, you have to work that booty. Try some of these workouts after eating.


Well, a few hours after eating. Throwing up cake mid-workout doesn’t sound too appealing now, does it?





Stay tuned: Over the next few days, I’m going to be doing Holiday Appetizer 101 segments. I have dozens of delicious apps to share – some you’ve probably made, some you may not. Tis’ the season!
