“This is a mix to create individual servings like the Warm Delights, cake in a mug/cup craze. It is "just add water". It makes a rich, fudgy cake. This is suitable for gift giving. It does not use a cake mix to start, and does not use egg. It is prepared in the microwave. 4 Tbl of mix filled my mug about half full, it does rise a little when cooking. This amount of mix will make 11 cakes, or if your mug is big enough for a double batch it will make 5. If you just want to make one just decrease the yield to 1 cake. Originally posted on”
