These make for a special treat when your day hasn't gone too smoothly or as a special reward for the kids. Like the days when the kids don't want to go down for a nap! They would be a great Christmas gift as well packaged inside a mug. Individual cakes - not cupcakes. They take a couple of minutes (literally) to make.
You will need:
Cake mix of your choice.
Yolk overboard! Salt will clean that up.
While it is cooking you have just enough time to clean everything up and maybe the yolk.
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 ½ tsp dry flavoring
( ex. powdered lemonade mix, powdered orange breakfast drink mix, cocoa powder)
I had tried the glaze, but didn't care for it too much. Let me know if you come up with something that works great with this. The cake itself is pretty moist, so without it is still pretty good. Of course, you HAVE to test it - when and if you can manage to get the kids are down for a nap. Make it a mommy moment!
