Two- Minute Cupcake

Contributing Writer: Jamie Sanders

Yes, you read that title right!

I made this “cupcake” in less than 2 minutes!  It was so quick and easy.  The best part is you can make just one serving whenever you get the urge for something sweet.  (How many times have you made a special dessert or treat, and then have a “tiny” bite every time you step into the kitchen?)

Here is what you need to make a Two-Minute Cupcake:

1/4 cup of boxed cake mix (any flavor you choose, I used yellow.)
1 1/2 tbsp of water
Coffee cup (preferably one with a rounded bottom)


Mix the cake mix and water together.  Cook in the microwave for one minute.

Pop the cake out on to a plate and add whatever toppings you desire. (Or you can eat it straight from the cup!)  That’s it!

I topped my cupcake with a bit of homemade strawberry preserves, chocolate syrup and powdered sugar.  Yum!  It was so good…  Just think of all the flavor combinations you can make.

    I love your toppings! My children would love those for a snack–but I would have to make a regular batch of cupcakes. I love your toppings; they are so simple, and I have them on hand!
