Marvis, I never made this particular (3-ingredient cake) recipe, but have made one similar. I have been using the Sugar Free Pillsbury Cake Mixes and changed them up in some of my favorite recipes. I made the yellow cake in a 9x13 pan, but it could be made in a sheet pan also. I used to make a sheet pan cake from scratch, but now that I am diabetic (and have been since 2001), I doctor up the sugar free mixes. After making the cake according to the directions on the box, I used Lucky Leaf sugar free pie filling and put dabs of the pie filling all over the top of the cake. My "from scratch" recipe always had a powdered sugar icing drizzled on top, but this one, we just eat with the light Cool Whip. The cake is nice and moist and my husband really likes it. It could be done with the sugar free chocolate cake too, but I was never a fan of the black forest cake. I used this with the sugar free apple pie filling, too, and used a little cinnamon in the cake batter. I made angle food cake with just a few ingredients like pineapple in its own juice or with lemon pie filling and that turned out good, so I think your recipe would turn out well, also.

Thanks for all the upside down cake recipes, Mary J. You have given me more ideas of how I can make them sugar free.

Bread Mixes from The Prepared Pantry

This is for Dee who asked in the 8/29 newsletter if the freezer fruit cake recipe I recently submitted was to be served frozen. It is good to take the cake out of the freezer a few minutes before serving for easier cutting, but it should basically be kept frozen until ready to serve and any leftovers should be returned to the freezer. You could store it in the refrigerator, but the cake does not hold its shape and needs to be eaten with a spoon not a fork. It is still good, just not really a cake any more.

I made this for my husband's birthday party yesterday and as usual it was a huge hit with no leftovers. It is easy to assemble and requires no baking. You can use any type of crushed cookie, but Oreos are the favorite with my family. You can also use other flavors of ice cream topping, but chocolate is our favorite. You can make this several days in advance and just tightly wrap top with foil.

Oreo Ice Cream Cake Recipe

1 (16 oz.) pkg. Oreo cookies
1/3 c. butter
1/2 gal. ice cream vanilla, chocolate chip, chocolate, or other flavor
1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip
1 jar fudge topping- not chocolate syrup
1 (9x13) cake pan or large springform pan

Crush cookies and set 1 cup or more aside for top. Melt butter and mix with crushed cookies. Press into bottom of cake pan. Let ice cream soften while you do that. After ice cream has softened spread on top of cookie crumbs and lightly press down with back of spoon. Then spread fudge topping on top of ice cream. Then spread the Cool Whip on top of that. Sprinkle remaining cookie crumbs on top of Cool Whip and slightly press down with back of spoon. Freeze for at least 4 to 5 hours, but overnight is better. Serves 10 to 12. For easier cutting remove from freezer 5 - 10 minutes before serving, depending on room temperature and dip knife in hot water. Return leftovers to freezer.

Someone suggested buying an extra item and making a box to give to them. I thought it was a great idea. I have another idea that I think is a good one as well.

So many times a recipe will make a larger quantity of food than 2 of us can reasonable eat in a day or 2. Make up a platter and take it to an elderly neighbor who probably can't cook a lot of different meals. Or maybe there is just one person so things like a meat loaf or a pot roast isn't something they would make for themselves. I take these meals to an elderly lady in my church several times a month and she is so appreciative and it makes it so worth while.

This is a quick and easy recipe when you are in a hurry. I have used this many times and you can even substitute 1/2 frozen sweet potato patty in place of the apple.

Apple Dumplings Recipe

1 Can Crescent rolls 8 count
1 good size baking apple*
1 cup orange juice
1/4-1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs. butter
Vanilla and cinnamon optional

Wrap each piece of apple in a Crescent Triangle starting at widest end, and place seam side down, in pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Melt Butter, sugar and juice on stove to make a syrup, bring to a boil, ( it does not really get thick). When you have a good syrup, pour over.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Newsletter looks awesome today. I don't know if any of our Landers already do this but will pass this tip on. The celery in my grocery stores is priced sky high($3 a bunch). So this week my store ran a special at 98 cents a bunch and no limit! I bought 10 bunches - took them home and chopped them all up. Laid them out on large pan and froze them. When frozen I broke them up with my hands and put some in each quart resealable bag. You wouldn't be able to put them in salads but for soups-stews or casseroles they work great. I also do this with super big onions I buy at our Farmer's Market. Sure beats running to the store when I'm out in the middle of winter. I'm kind of a pack rat with anything I can freeze and use in winter lol. I also buy big quantities of potatoes when on sale and cook them up then mash them with skins on and put 2 cups per bag and freeze them. Thaw in microwave with a little butter and they taste like fresh.
