Hankering for a little cake?

I love me some coconut cake, but it's just my hubby and I and I only bake a whole cake on special occasions.  I found JUST the thing: cake in a cup! I just made it and it's pretty good! 

Here's the ingredients that you mix in a large coffee cup.

4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa 
( plus 1/4 cup of chocolate chips for more chocolatey taste)
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
1 tsp. vanilla

Microwave for 3 minutes and let cool before eating! Wow, too easy to have your cake and eat it too!

Have a great weekend friends! Bethany and I will be working on her One Room Challenge. What are you doing?

  1. Brilliant, brilliant idea! I'm going to try this over the weekend.


  2. ha! just what we need. I toss out so much cake whenever I make one, we can't eat it fast enough. this is perfect...donna

  3. We have done this, and it's great! Coconut is my absolute favorite. So, when I saw the first image I was hoping that you were making that! Do you have a good coconut cake recipe, too?

    1. really, coconut is your favorite, too? Could we have any more things in common? I will experiment with a coconut version and let you know. Just what I need: instant cake when I want it. oh no!

  4. Hooray! I gave my mom this recipe and promptly lost my own copy. She is always traveling (Siberia this time) so when I want it I can't call her for it. I am printing it now.

  5. Adorable! I would actually do a few and serve them at a party.

    1. Hi Phyllis!
      Michael Symon's Cake in a Cup recipe is for 4 people, so check that one out!
      But it does have 4 eggs in it, and a boatload of the same quantities in making a WHOLE cake! But sometimes we don't need a whole one, so I guess it's still great...

  6. I don't need this but I want this...It's late...too late to bake. But there is tomorrow!

  7. O.M.G.@the cake in a cup!! SO doing this for "slumber party" time with my daughter and her friend this Saturday! Thanks, Nanc!
