“This is a cake recipe adapted from one Tupperware consultants have passed around for years to make in the microwave. I don't like it that way, but baked in the oven it makes an excellent special occasion cake. The key is to use cheap ingredients. Generic branded pie filling and cake mix seem to work best.”
