Cake for One, Please! [Funfetti Mug-Cake]

I’m obsessed with the Bailey’s mug cake I discovered on Kirbie’s Cravings. Unfortunately there’s a weird part of me that feels I shouldn’t have both cake AND liquor for dinner on weekdays. But I really wanted a cake tonight.

Today was a damn good day for me. I totally killed it today, and dammit I earned a cake for dinner!

We’ve had a partial box of Pillsbury Funfetti mix cake mix in the pantry for a while and I was always scared to use it because I couldn’t remember if we halved the the recipe or thirded it…

On a whim I thought, “Maybe I have the creative and [adjective] abilities to DIY some mug cake up in Hea.”

Lo and behold, I did!

  • 6 tbsp Funfetti mix
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 egg

PROCESS

  • Mix it in a large mug with a fork.
  • Wash your fork.
  • Microwave your mug of batter for a minute and 30 seconds or a minute and 45 seconds depending on its power.
  • EAT THAT MESS! (careful, it’s hot)

Personally, I think the texture was way better than the from scratch cakes and totally spot on with what box Funfetti cake should be.
