1 Minute, 1 Serving Cake

First post of the new year! Can you believe it’s already 2012??

So maybe your new year’s resolution was to cut down on eating dessert.
Well, 1. What are you doing on a sweets blog?? That’s like self-induced torture
and 2.  I have good news!!! Now you can have your cake AND eat it too (excuse the cheesy line)

If you’re like me, you can’t be trusted with lots of sweets in your house.  Believe me, even a future dietitian can have one of those “screw baking it, I’ll just eat the cookie dough” nights. (Yes, I can be impatient)
Everything in moderation!!

Which brings me to this post:  how to make a single serving of cake in the microwave.  Small, guilt-free, and you won’t end up eating 6 servings of dessert.

Yes, you can buy Warm Delight Minis, but this is a better (and cheaper!) option.

You’ll need:

  • 1 box cake mix, any flavor
  • Water
  • Small ramekin
  • A little frosting or topping of your choosing
  • Spoon!
  1. Place about 3 tablespoons of cake mix into your ramekin.
I used vanilla this time…
     2.   Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons cool water into the ramekin.
     3.   Mix well. (it’s ok if there are still a few lumps)


It won’t look like much, but don’t worry, it puffs up!
     4.   Microwave on high about 45-60 seconds, or until the top of the cake looks slightly dry.



5.   Top with a little jam, icing, whipped cream, or sugar-free chocolate sauce.  Dig in!!

So there ya have it, a little dessert that’s super simple and that won’t throw you off your healthy eating course.  Enjoy!!
