Even though I'm not much of a baker, I look so forward to this hop every year. I work very hard at finding a dessert recipe of some sort that I can literally whip together for pictures for the hop. I have skipped altogether a couple of times and always regret it.
This year I tripped over a wonderful apple spice cake recipe by Michelle at Weekend Craft. The recipe calls for just 3 items. Cake mix, canned pie filling and 3 eggs baked in a 9 x 13 pan. Right up my alley.
I tried the recipe, as written, for a pot luck, it was a major success, not a crumb left. Next I tried swapping out the apple filling for peach filling, wonderful.
A friend decided that if I could change the filling she could change the cake mix. For this Christmas Exchange I'll be using her choices,
