“Our biggest nibbling at the cake till its gone. This way, you only bake a smaller cake! You get the great taste of cake, a reasonable sized piece.....and a cake mix makes 3-4 cakes! A later note: I have added up to a cup of blueberries to this. Just be sure to let it cool a bit, it gets eally hot inside the berries!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup cake mix, any flavor

  1. Measure out one cup of cake mix.
  2. (Put the remaining mix in a zip loc bag in the fridge.) Mix in egg and oil.
  3. Put water in 1/4 cup measure.
  4. Pour into mix, stirring, a tablespoon or so at at time (I'm at high altitude and use 1/4 cup water, yours will probably need less).
