Bob Marley Microwave Cake

I posted once before about a Cake in a Cup recipe, but it was not nearly as easy as this one. And really, if you are anything like me, easy does it trumps all.

Here's what you'll need:

1 box angel food cake mix
1 box cake mix of whatever flavor you choose
1 gallon size zip lock baggie or other sealable storage container
2 Tablespoons cold water

First, take both cake mixes and dump them into your zip lock bag or other sealable container. Give them a good shake and make sure the dry mixture is well blended. You can store this mixture in an airtight, dry container kept in your pantry or cabinet until you are ready to use it, one delicious serving at a time.

Now, you've decided you want some cake, but not too much cake. Maybe just for you, maybe just for two. You don't want to have to make a whole cake. So here's where I'm gonna help you out of this predicament. Grab yourself a large coffee mug, I like to spray the inside of mine with no stick spray, but that's just me. Place 3 tablespoons of that cake mix mixture and 2 tablespoons of cold water in the cup* and make like Bob Marley and Stir it Up, little darlin', stir it up! Come on, baby...
Squeeze the excess air out of the zip lock bag and reseal for longer storage time.
Now, place that cup full of stirred up goodness into the microwave and zap it for 1 minute.  Top with whipped cream, icing, powdered sugar, fruit compote, or whatever topping your little heart desires.

You're welcome!

*You can also add nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruits like cranberries, raisins, etc- go crazy! Experiment. That's what life's all about, after all.
