Perfect Treat for Me Time!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with The Motherhood and Duncan Hines. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.

Parents, it is time to unite.  Time to enjoy the art of bedtime and embrace that ME TIME with a perfect treat!  Look, once the kids are actually asleep, I usually want some time to just me.  I want to catch up on my weekly shows or even watch a movie on demand.  Most of the time when I do get to have that Me Time I like to have a little treat to enjoy too.  Confession: most of the time my treat is a piece of my kids candy from Halloween...yes, Halloween!  #MomLife!

Sometimes I believe the makes of all things are in my head because did you know you can have your own special Duncan Hines cake treat in about a minute??  Yes, it is true and it is so good!  It's like Duncan Hines knew my "treat" struggle.  I love to bake but honestly, I cannot for my own good have a large cake in my house without over doing it!   I love the option of a delicious treat that is the perfect size for 1.

Parents often forget to give themselves Me Time but we have to.  We deserve that time and now while I enjoy my shows and maybe even a book I can also take about a minute to make a treat I can really feel sweet about.  So take the time, kick back and enjoy that perfect treat!

Let's talk about clean-up - there is none!  Seriously.  With the individually sized pouches there are no leftovers or waste and the only clean up is the mug once you devoured your cake!

Using a 9-12 ounce coffee mug, pour the contents of the mix into the mug.  Next, add your liquid of choice.  The standard is 3 tablespoons of water but there are so many other liquids you could use for these Perfect Size for 1 treats!  Stir the mix until combined and cook as instructed on the package.  Let set for two minutes and enjoy!  

Ahhhh....perfect me time treat!

You can make these cakes with almost any liquid like milk, juice, coffee, liquor, and more. The mix is also add-in friendly so we can add in goodies like chocolate chips, nuts, fruit, and the like.

When I first read that I could enjoy a single serving of warm cake I was not sure how that was possible.  But it is and the cake is great.  It tastes just like a made from scratch cake that we all love.

As the instructions say, use water to mix up your cake.  Well, I did that the first time I enjoyed one of my Perfect Size for 1 cakes but the follow times I decided to get a little creative with my mix-ins.  Hey, I love baking but frankly finding ways to cut back on the time I spend in the kitchen is nice too!  
For my liquid mix-ins I decided to stick with milk so far, but I am really tempted to try some juice with one of the Cheese Cake flavor.  Next, flavor on my shopping list.  Yum!

I have also mixed small nuts and extra chocolate chips into my cake but probably my favorite combo that I have created is preparing the Chocolate Lover's Cake with milk and then topping it with candied nuts and caramel sauce!  SO GOOD!!  My favorite!

  1. I LOVE these! My friend introduced me to them because we both hit a mid-afternoon slump and need an easy pick-me-up. What's better than cake for one??

  3. Okay, you just made my day (or my evening, I suppose)! I need alone time to recharge. Sometimes I read a book in the tub; other times I veg out in bed with some t.v. reruns. This snack would be perfect to go along with an episode of Friends (and there would be no evidence left behind for the kids to find)!
