Our biggest nibbling at the cake till its gone. This way, you only bake a smaller cake! You get the great taste of cake, a reasonable sized piece.....and a cake mix makes 3-4 cakes! A later note: I have added up to a cup of blueberries to this. Just be sure to let it cool a bit, it gets eally hot inside the berries!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup cake mix, any flavor
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 -4 tablespoon water
  • Pam cooking spray

  1. Measure out one cup of cake mix.
  2. (Put the remaining mix in a zip loc bag in the fridge.) Mix in egg and oil.
  3. Put water in 1/4 cup measure.
  4. Pour into mix, stirring, a tablespoon or so at at time (I'm at high altitude and use 1/4 cup water, yours will probably need less).
  5. Stir until lumps disappear.
  6. Spray an 8-10" pie pan with Pam.
  7. Put the mix in the pan.
  8. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until cake pulls away from side of pan.

What a fun little cake. I was skeptical but went ahead since all the other reviews said it really works. It does make a nice size cake. I used 3 Tbsp water and wasn't sure what was the right consistency. It baked 14 minutes and cools very quickly.

WOW!! This recipe is wonderful!! When I first saw that it took only 1 cup of cake mix, I didn't think it would be enough, buy it was I did need to add another tablespoon of water to make it the right consistancy. Other than that, everything else was just the right amount. I like cake but a whole cake is just too much for me. This size is perfect!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
