Craving a simple dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth but only take about a minute to make? I partnered with Duncan Hines to share this recipe for a simple and easy raspberry chocolate cake.
It’s no secret that I love dessert. I especially love dessert when it involves chocolate. Pretty sure my grandma passed her love for chocolate on to me with all the yummy things she used to bake. The truth is, though, I don’t always have a lot of time to bake. There are times when I just want something quick and easy, ya know? If you’re reading this, of course you know!
Enter Duncan Hines with their scrumptious Perfect Size for 1 desserts that are ready in about a minute. Keep reading because I’m going to show you how to customize their Chocolate Lover’s Cake into a delicious recipe for an unforgettable afternoon treat.
Perfect Size for 1 Warm Treats
Dessert is especially good right after dinner. But sometimes I love a good afternoon treat because that’s the time when cravings usually seem to hit. Perfect Size for 1 comes in 18 different varieties, including flavors like Banana Bread, Lemon Cake, S’mores Cake, Brownie, Carrot Cake, and of course, Chocolate Lover’s Cake. All you need are a mug, a little bit of water (or other liquid), and about a minute. How perfect is that?
I love that I can enjoy a warm delicious treat just for me without all the work of actually baking a cake. And it’s individually sized so I’m not tempting myself with an entire cake. Another plus is that when the summer heat is here, there’s no need to turn on the oven. There are no dishes, besides my 8-oz. mug; so there’s no mess to clean up!
The best part is you can customize your treat to your liking, and that’s where the printable recipe below comes in.
