Cake in a Mug

Pinspiration Thursday

Mug Cake Mix  I generally don’t keep ready-made sweets in the house because when I do, they just get eaten and I no longer have ready-made sweets in the house.

It’s a vicious cycle.

However, I do get cravings, as does the man-child, and I need a quick fix for that. We’ve played around off and on with the brownie in a mug cakes. I recently purchased a product called “Mugging” at the grocery store – which works, but is a bit high for my budget.

Duncan Hines to the rescue!

This is super, super easy, people. Just mix together a box of cake mix of your choice (I currently have yellow and chocolate – pictured, and plans for spice and lemon) and a box of angel food cake mix. The mug cake is 3 tablespoons of mix, 2 tablespoons of water, and 1 minute in the microwave. Feel free to add fruit or baking chips or extract flavoring of your choice (no more than a teaspoon). There are tons of ways to dress this up.

The jars are half-gallon Ball jars – which I use for soooo many things! In fact, I just emptied one of these jars of limoncello that I started last year. So yummy. I can see that I may have to go purchase more jars, though…
