Ugly Cake

Ugly Cake
50 Min

When we first turned this cake out of the pan we didn't think we were going to like it. It didn't look very good, but the taste was incredible! So we gave it a whole new look by topping it with dollops of whipped topping and some gummy worms. Now it tastes great and looks great!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (21 ounce) can blueberry pie filling
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Gummy worms for garnishing

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a blender, puree blueberry pie filling until smooth. In a large bowl, combine pie filling, cake mix, eggs, oil, and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer about 2 minutes on medium speed.
  3. Stir in walnuts and pour into prepared Bundt pan. Bake 50 to 55 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool slightly then remove from pan and continue cooling on a wire cooling rack. Before serving, top with dollops of whipped topping and decorate with gummy worms.


We usually use walnuts here, but shelled pecans and pistachios give it a different delicious taste!

I have a recipe almost exactly like this with pumpkin and it does work. No dirty blender either!!!

Pumpkin pie filling work. I have a recipe like this using pumpkin. Not my favorite tho.

I will make as recipe states but add some lemon zest as I always use lemon and blueberry together. Brings out the flavor of the berries

Baked this yesterday using cherry pie filling. Just thought it was o.k.

Well, let's see . . . it says blueberry pie filling. Maybe if you actually made THE RECIPE!

I just made this with cherry pie filling, as I didn't have blueberry in the pantry. It's delicious and moist! I left out the nuts and made a bit of simple syrup with almond flavoring, and soaked some into the cake. Absolute perfection! What a great idea to use pie filling for flavor and moistness!

Have not tried yet but wondering if this would work with other pie fillings as well... hmmmm

It will work with all kinds of pie filling. Not quite sure if Pumpkin pie filling would work. Might be interesting to try it. )

I think pumpkin would be awesome!


used white cake mix. & left yolks out. cake was so good. & much more attractive!!

Made this last week. Awesome tasting! I just sprinkled powdered sugar over mine. Will definitely make it again! Makes a great "breakfast" cake with coffee!

have made several ugly ducking cakes this ugly cake uses blueberries, not many blueberry cakes recipe out there, thanks!!

I made this ugly cake 2 days ago - a waste of a can of blueberry pie filling. The color was Ugly - but that was not a problem - not a taste of blueberries - not a distinctive flavor of any kind - just a not very impressive tasting cake. Not a keeper. VS

Just out of curiosity...why did you give it 4 stars??

Yeah, what steinert said. I still don't understand that way of thinking.
