60 Second Microwave Cake

Submitted by: -BETH-
60 Second Microwave Cake

Introduction

I believe we're all familiar with the recipe to bake a cake by mixing a standard cake mix with a 12 ounce diet soda. The calories are much reduced because the eggs and oil are eliminated. Your cake still bakes up moist and fluffy.

I recently saw my brother eat one of these microwave mini cakes that they have in the cake mix aisle. That, combined with a recent post basically describing how to make such a (full calorie) microwave mini cake from scratch got me thinking--would the diet soda recipe work on a small scale in the microwave?

It does.

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/12 cake mix (for me, that was 43g.*)
    1/12 can diet soda (equal to 1oz. or 1/8c. or 28g)

Directions

Stir together in a small microwave safe container. Microwave 60 seconds.

Makes 1 mini cake

Probably it's better if you let it sit a minute or two before eating...I did not wait. *The mix was about three heaping spoonfuls, or if you don't have a scale, try dividing it into 12 ziplocks.

In future, I will probably not use "reduced sugar" cake mix. Otherwise, it's fantastic.
