This recipe was posted previously, but was really formatted funky and didn't look right. SO, I'm retyping. These make really great gifts for those friends in the office. They are fast, unique and individual. You could even give them as a gift inside a mug. :)
There are 2 sets of instructions here...#1 tells you how to make the mix packets...#2 tells you what to do with those packets once you package them up and give them away. This 2nd set of instructions would be really good to give to the person that you give the packets to. :) Otherwise, they won't know how to make your wonderful little individualized cakes.
#1 How to make the Cake Mixes
1 box cake mix
1 box instant pudding
3" x 4" baggies (jewelry baggies...can be found at Michael's)
Mix the above 3 ingredients (all dry) in a bowl. See the chart below for good flavor options. Put 1/2 cup of the this mixture in each baggie. Label it 'Cake Mix'. One batch yeilds about 8 baggies.
2 and 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Flavor mix-in (see chart below)
Mix the above 2 ingredients. Put 1/3 cup of this into another baggie and label it 'Cake Glaze'.
#2 Instructions on using your Cake Mix Packets
1 egg white
1 Tbs Oil
1 Tbs water
Spray PAM in a mug. Pour the 'Cake Mix' powder into the mug and combine well with the above ingredients. While this is cooking, empty the 'Cake Glaze' packet into a small bowl or glass and add just enough water (1.5 Tbs) to make the glaze the consistency you'd like.
Pour the glaze on top of the hot Mug Cake and ENJOY! Don't forget milk with your chocolate cake. :)
