Dee Posted December 31, 2022 Share Posted December 31, 2022 Have you ever made a single serving of cake using the microwave? When my kids were in school, I often had a piece of fresh cake waiting for them as they came in the door. If you've never made it, it's so simple and so good. Using a boxed cake mix, fill a Styrofoam cup 1/2 full. Add enough water to make it the consistency of cake batter. Put it uncovered in the microwave for 1 minute. I don't buy Styrofoam cups anymore, so I use cereal bowls for DH and me. Proceed the same as above. However, it may take 1 1/2 minutes to cook if you use a little extra mix. For us, I put a little butter on top. When the kids were home, I made up some frosting and froze it in individual packets to top theirs with. I store the opened cake mix in the freezer where it will stay fresh long past the best buy date. 4 Quote Link to comment
