Then, I went to The Hidden Pantry and followed that blog, because she has a ton of awesome looking recipes (even one for home cured bacon!!!) So check it out!
Now back to the cake.
I used Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake Mix and Betty Crocker Super Moist Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix.
The result was a spongy, light and airy, little cake... like a chocolate Angel Food cake.
I used coffee cups. My coffee cups are really thin, so I only needed 45 seconds.
I also decided to drop a few chocolate chips into the batter. They sunk to the bottom of the cup, but when inverted into a bowl, they made a nice little "frosting".
While this isn't your typical thick, rich cake, there are a lot of things that I really like about it.
- Each serving is only about 126 calories (before adding chocolate chips). Yes. I calculated it out. And in case you are wondering, there are about 26 servings... which brings me to my next point...
- It is economical. I bought both cake mixes for a total of about $3. That's around 11 cents per serving.
- My kids like it! They also like that they can make it themselves. I like that, too!
- There are so many flavor possibilities! I don't even know what I want to try next. Carrot cake? Lemon? Strawberry?
- It stores well, and is nice to have on hand when we want a little treat.
- It is so quick! Simply measure it out, add water, and nuke. Cake in one minute!
