Blasphemy, I said.
And I left it alone. I didn’t think about it again until I stumbled over My Cup Of Cake.
My Cup of Cake is seriously one of the best things ever. You order a box and that contains all the necessary ingredients to make a souffle cake for two. Start to finish, it will take you under five minutes, meaning it’s one of the few things that will take you longer to eat than cook.
And you can totally pretend you slaved over this when you have guests. Just tell them you pre-baked it before they came over. No one needs to know you just popped it in the microwave.
What You’ll Need:
All the ingredients that you need come in the box. There’s a cup (more on that cup later), instructions, a pack of oil, a pack of mix, and there should be a smaller cup for water (not pictured).
This is all you’ll need for the Belgian Chocolate souffle cake. If you choose the salted caramel, your box will also contain two sticks of caramel (small aside: I took a photo of those but it looks like hot dogs instead of caramel sticks so I left it off the post).
What You’ll Do:
Pour 1/3 cup water into the provided cup.
Add the oil.
Add the mix.
Eat and enjoy.
Seriously. That’s it.
You can top it with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or just eat it plain.
The cake was actually really good too. We ate it immediately, which may not have been the best idea because the chocolate chips inside held the heat, but other than that it was great. It was a rich chocolate cake made in my microwave.
You could bake it in the oven for more of a souffle feel, but I like the instantaneous cooking from the microwave (which is ironic because I general don’t microwave anything).
And you can keep the cake later because it’s a reusable ceramic mug. So if you want more cup of cake, you can order a refill. Or, if you just want a mug for tea, you can use this too. The cup has a really wide mouth and a great hand feel. It bowls out, if you will, and fits perfectly into your hand. I love it. It’s actually my favorite mug right now. And yes, I’m allowed to say that because I drink tea daily and we don’t use plastic cups in this house ever for anything. So I do use mugs all the time but never until this mug was there one I really liked because of how it was crafted.
My Cup of Cake doesn’t just sell cakes. The brand also sells an edible choc-board. I actually have one in my cabinet right now, but that’s a review that’s coming later. But, seriously, it’s the best concept. You write on the chocolate and you pour sugar over it to show the words. You can use them as secret notes, save the date cards, and more. Check out this video to see how awesome this is.
