Cake in 60 seconds (review of Cake in a Cup)

Curious if the Cake in a Cup from White Wings is all it's cracked up to be?  A while back I bought a pack of the Salted Caramel and Chocolate Chip version of the cake mix whilst it was on an introductory special from a local Woolworths.  Each box has 4 satchels.



I thought I'd pop up a few photos and my review of the process and taste in case you want to know a bit before you go and buy your own.

This is my 3rd satchel.  I've made it pretty much to spec/

Step 1: Empty pack into mug.  Use a decent size mug but it doesn't need to be huge.  Just bigger than a teacup.

Step 2: Add 40mL of milk.  (Two tablespoons).  And stir.

Step 3: pop it into the microwave

Step 4: Put in microwave for 1 minute.  I put in a little bit more thinking I could use the convection part of the oven (grill in this case) to give it a bit more of an oven feel).  But found that I had to buzz it for another 30 seconds to make it work because I did that.  So just stick to the instructions and do 60 seconds :)

Step 5: Inspect (the usual stick a spoon in it to see if it's cake like) and buzz for longer if needed

Step 6: Sorry I had to rebuzz (30 seconds)

Step 7: it worked so it's eating time.

So for the taste it's good.  And it's moist enough.  It's a bit on the sweet side for me but then most things are!  But not overly so.  It just has a non baked and plasticiness about it. But I think that's the microwave part (hence my trial of using the grill above!).  I have made this before by popping it in the oven and even added a crumble top and it was amazing!  So it definitely can taste great.


It does in a pinch if you are craving something in the office that's quick and you can whip up.  A cold wintery office day it would be perfect!

P.S. Here's a pic of the back of the box in case you want to see some details about it.
