Cake in a Cup

There is an email going around these days for a cake in the cup recipe. This ISN'T it! Tried that one and wasn't impressed. I've had this recipe for years and have used it numerous times and with several different varieties. It's fun and easy to make for a quick snack. This is a 'just for fun' recipe for a fun little mix.

For cake:
1 cake mix
1 sm. Instant pudding mix (not sugar free)
Good cake combinations are:
Lemon cake/Lemon pudding
Yellow cake/Chocolate pudding (excellent)
Devils Food/Chocolate pudding
Pineapple cake/Coconut cream pudding
Butterscotch cake/Butterscotch pudding
For Glaze:
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1 ½ t. dry flavoring: powdered lemonade mix (not sugar free) powdered orange drink or cocoa powder
Place dry cake mix and dry pudding mix into large bowl and blend well with a whisk. This will make 8-9 cake mixes.
Place ½ c. dry mix into sandwich bag. Label and seal. Combine glaze ingredients and put into small bag and label and seal.
To use:
Cup must hold 1 ½ c. water and must be microwave safe. Generously spray inside of cup with Pam. Empty dry cake mix into cup and add 1 egg white, 1 T. oil and 1 T. water. Mix for 15 seconds, carefully mixing in all the dry mix. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes. While cake is cooking, place glaze ingredients into small container and add 1 ½ t. water and mix well. When cake is done, pour glaze over cake in cup. Eat warm. (Batter can be mixed in a small bowl and poured into sprayed cup if desired.) These are fun and don’t really have to be glazed. Keep some on hand for a quick snack.
