  1. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs on high for 3 minutes; gradually add sugar. Combine flour and baking powder; stir into egg mixture alternately with water. Beat on low for 1 minute. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until the cake tests done. Cool. Split cake into two layers.
  2. For filling, combine the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan; stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook for 2 minutes. Stir a small amount into eggs; mix well. Return all to pan. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thick. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Add the butter and vanilla; cool completely. Spread between cake layers. Cut into squares; top with pie filling and whipped cream.

Great cake, tried it today and I know it will be gone by tomorrow. Everyone loved it!

very,very scrumptious!

"until cake tests done". I left it in that long and ended up with a really tough cake. Next time if it looks done, it is. And make the filling thicker than pudding or it's going to run all over...
