Try It Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, peeps!

We’re only 5 days into November and I’m sure you can already taste the turkey you’re going to bury your face in in a matter of weeks!

If you’re like me, you like to take it easy the first few weeks of November so on Thanksgiving, you can gorge like Kevin and Pam at Ultra Feast. But, if you’re also like me, you find it hard to have self-control when it comes to sweets and anything chocolate. So on those nights when you “just gotta have something” I have found what you’re looking for!

I get Hungry Girl emails all the time and she has a crazy truckload of recipes for desserts. One of her staples is called “Cake Mugs”. These are single serving cakes in a mug made with (typically) less than 5 ingredients!

 

My sister found one the other day and we tried it! It was DELISH!

 

Here’s what you need:

I box Angel Food Cake Mix

1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix

Water

 

Simple recipes are the BEST!

That’s it! That’s seriously all you need! Well, you’ll need mugs and a microwave of course, but that goes without saying.

Here’s what to do:

Mix the 2 cake mixes together in a gallon zip-lock bag.

Take 3 tablespoons cake mix; mix with 2 tablespoons water in a microwave-safe mug.

Bake, bake, bake a cake! Stir that baby with a garden rake!

Microwave for 1 minute. Then, let it set for about a minute or two and enjoy!

So light and fluffy!

So light and fluffy!

We sprinkled mini chocolate chips on ours—so tasty! You can choose any cake mix you want to, BTW. It doesn’t have to be chocolate. But, I will say that chocolate is the BEST!
