That’s right—we’re talking individual cake recipes you can have ready in 5 minutes or less. Perfect for those times when you’re craving something sweet, but you also know it’d be a bad idea to make an entire batch of brownies for just yourself.
The funny thing about this new trend is that we’ve had a recipe for Fudgy “Cup” Cakes for many years! Our version uses shortcut ingredients like cake mix and pudding mix, which makes it even easier—but my favorite part about this recipe is the suggestion to use this idea for gifts. You can divide individual portions into little plastic baggies, and then stick them inside cute coffee mugs (microwave-safe, of course) and give them as gifts! I don’t know about you, but I think this is pretty dang adorable.
