To make the mix:
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 box chocolate instant pudding mix (4 serving size)
Combine the 2 mixes well with a whisk and store in an airtight container with the following instructions…
WHEN YOU WANT CAKE:
Spray a LARGE mug with cooking spray. Lightly beat together the white of one large egg and 2 tablespoons water in the mug. Add 1/2 cup of the mix and stir well. Microwave on HIGH 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
If you’d prefer a higher-fat version, mix 1/2 cup mix with 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon water.
These make fun pick-me-up gifts! Place one serving size in a bag, add a mug and some instructions and your gift is ready.
