Quick and Easy Halloween Cake

Stove-top Halloween Cake is ready to serve 6 in the time it takes to preheat the oven for conventional baking!


To make a quick and easy Halloween cake, you will need:
½ box Duncan Hines Orange Supreme Cake Mix
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup water
¼ cup canola oil
1 Tbsp. butter
1 1.45 oz. Hershey’s plain chocolate bar (or equivalent)

In a 1 ½ quart size quality stainless steel pan (with cover), melt the butter in the pan over low heat.  Combine all ingredients except the chocolate bar.  Pour batter into the pan, cover, and time for 15 minutes.  Check the batter for doneness.  If needed, cook in 5 minute increments, testing for doneness.  (Wipe moisture from the inside of the lid each time you check the batter) Keep temperature on the lowest setting to avoid scorching.

When the cake tests done (use a cake tester or toothpick), gently shake the pan, remove the lid, then invert the cake onto a plate. Unwrap the chocolate bar and place it on the cake to melt. After about 10 minutes, the chocolate should be soft enough to spread as frosting. Frost only the top for contrast, or you’ll need two chocolate bars.
