Fluffy strawberry cake envelopes a sweet blueberry and cream filling, making it almost like an inside-out shortcake! You can switch up the cake mix and pie filling to make a huge variety of flavor blends. Try vanilla cake with cherry pie filling, lemon cake with lemon pie filling, or spice cake with apple pie filling. Have fun with it! :)

Fruit & Cream Cakes

Fluffy strawberry cake envelopes a sweet blueberry and cream filling, making it almost like an inside-out shortcake!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box cake mix , any variety, prepared as directed on box but not baked
  • 1 can fruit pie filling , any variety
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese , softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. By hand or with a mixer, cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Mix in the vanilla and egg.
  2. Fill cupcake wrappers 1/2 way with prepared cake batter.
  3. Spoon 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into the middle of the cupcake.
  4. Spoon 1 teaspoon of pie filling onto the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Top with 1 tablespoon of prepared cake batter.
  6. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, or until tops are springy and firm when lightly touched.
  7. These mini cakes are best when allowed to cool completely, or even chilled in the fridge, since the filling makes them extra delicate.
  8. When ready to serve, carefully unwrap the mini cake and place it on a plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, add whipped cream and additional fruit topping, or serve with ice cream, as desired.
