So yeah, I called it. 1 hour left to go on Day 2 and here I am. Again.
That’s what happens when you: get up late, have dance practice, costume shopping with dance mates, a sunny day, Jasper Fforde to read, and Final Four games going on. Also I’m just lazy and I procrastinate a lot.
So here is a nice little cake recipe that you can make super quick! It seemed like the right time to do this post since I’m intending to post in less than 5 minutes. My mom gave this recipe to me, although I am fairly sure she said she got it out of the local newspaper, so maybe Amber has this recipe too! Oh! And this is the first time I’ve ever seen a recipe for cake in a mug that didn’t involve an egg! YES! Because using an egg? That’s a little too close to baking for my lazy hiney.
Take 1 box of angel food cake mix. It MUST be angel food. Take another box of cake mix. This one cane be ANY kind of cake mix you want – yellow, chocolate, funfetti. I chose devil’s food cake just because I was indecisive and thought it was funny.
Pour your cake mixes into one big ziploc gallon bag. Close the bag and then shake shake shake! Shake up your cake mixes until it is so well mixed that you can’t even tell that there are two mixes in there. It should look like one mix.
Now take 1/3 cup of your cake mixture and put it in a microwave safe mug. Add 3 tablespoons of water. Mix it up so that it’s all smooth and there are no clumps. Microwave for 1 minute. And that’s it!
Now enjoy your hopefully yummy cake! And also, you have a ton of cake mix left over so you can make multiple cakes! I took my bag of cake mix to work and have been eating cake EVERY SINGLE DAY for the past week. I’m not even halfway done with the bag. Which is kind of sad because I realized that I’m not the biggest fan of devil’s food cake. But I like it enough so that I can’t justify getting rid of any leftover mix. Actually, I do really enjoy the cake when I have milk with it. Yuuuuuuummmmmm, it is DELICIOUS with a nice carton of milk from the hospital cafeteria! When I finally do finish my bag of mix, I’m going to use a fudge chocolate cake mix I think. Or maybe funfetti – OMG I looooooooove funfetti cake! But I think for a daily cake fix, chocolate fudge is THE way to go.

P.S. Dear nerdgirls, what is your favorite kind of cake? And when I say nerdgirls, I mean: Amber, Jen, Jill, and anyone else who reads this blog (aka Diana and possibly Sheila?) :)
