Lucky Leaf got their start by selling fresh applesauce, but soon began making ready-to-use pie filling when American women became busy with more than just housewife duties! Today, they offer a wide selection of ready-to-use pie fillings including Premium Cherry, Apple, Peach, Blueberry, Lemon, Red Raspberry, Lite, and Crème.
I love working with Lucky Leaf and trying out their fabulous recipes. This time, I got to make some yummy summer treats!! They sent me a sweet gift package that included three flavors of Lucky Leaf Pie filling, recipe cards, and a really cook ice pop mold.
Perfectly Peach Cinnacake
One 18.25 oz package dry yellow cake mix
one 21 oz can Lucky Leaf Premium Peach Pie Filling
6 Tbsp. sugar
2tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350
Blend together dry cake mix, 1/2 can of the Lucky Leaf Peach Pie Filling and eggs in large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in remaining pie filling until well mixed.
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Spread half the batter in greased 13x9 baking pan; sprinkle with half the cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining batter and cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool.
Makes 12 servings.
Results: I wasted no time after making this incredible easy dessert and put the recipe right in my recipe book. My daughter helped me prepare the cake as part of our Kids Can Cook Too experiment and the whole family went bananas (or should I say peaches) over this delicious and moist desert. It is perfect for a summer event or just to enjoy after a family meal. I loved getting the occasional chunk of peach in my cake and it tasted perfect with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
Frozen Pie Pops
1/2 21 oz can of any flavor Lucky Leaf Premium Pie Filling
1 cup milk
1/2 lemon, squeezed
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and pour blended mixture into ice pop molds. Freeze. Serve as ice pops. Pour any remaining mixture into a freezable container and serve as a frozen pie treat. Remaining filling can also be used on pancakes ,waffles, or mixed into yogurts. Once we got used the removing the silicone molds and realized they needed to freeze longer, they looked much nicer than the one before (but they kept tearing into them before I could take a good picture!)
Results: These were another fun and easy dessert/treat that kids can totally make. They reminded me of a hardened frozen yogurt. My kids really liked the taste and they are the perfect treat for a warm summer day.
