Three Ingredient Chocolate Cake

Three Ingredient Cake

Some people call this the ‘Are You Kidding’ Cake, some call it the Three Ingredient Cake, and others just call it delicious. You know me, I like easy, and this is SUPER easy and SUPER moist. The icing I make for it is just as easy and yummy. A friend of mine gave me this recipe, so I don’t know the origin. It’s not a recipe I came up with, but I just had to share it.





  • One Box of Cake Mix
  • One Can of Pie Filling
  • 3 Eggs


  • 1/2 Cup Butter, melted
  • 2/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 3 C Confectioner’s Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

For cake: Mix all ingredients and bake in a 9 x 13-inch pan or a bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. You can use so many variations of cake mix and pie filling. I used a chocolate cake mix and cherry pie filling.

For Frosting: Stir melted butter and cocoa powder until evenly mixed. Add confectioner’s sugar and milk – mix. Add vanilla extract and mix with an electric mixer for three or four minutes. Pour over cooled cake.
