Blend with 9001 steps. Does the job but isn't "pure"

There's no one "real" solution, but you can do pic related. Extract edges with direct selection and cmd-X & cmd-F, join them with cmd-J.
Works easy with simple geo shapes, but for O and R and P etc. it's a bit harder.

Just do 3D extrude in Illustrator with shading turned off. Apply the effect then expand. Select your shadowy bits and use whatever color you want. There are probably a zillion ways to do this, but this one works for me.

this turns the text on a 3d axis, what OP is looking for is a 2D effect.

Contrary to popular belief, you can do it losslessly with the 3D Extrude function but it's retarded and it gets real ugly real fast if you have curved characters like O or S. Still fixable tho.
Works in most cases.
