"Our biggest problem...is 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!"
Serving Size: 1 (9 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"I'm hooked on this now! What a great way to make just a small cake! I will treasure this recipe! Thank you!"
"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!!"
"What an excellent idea for our small family! I made this with yellow cake and put a handful of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in. It was delicious just like that! Twelve minutes in the oven was perfect using my Pyrex pie dish."
"WOW! This was such a GREAT find! I absolutely love cake, but I am the only one - my husband and daughter don't really care for it. So this works out great for me!! And it tasted delicious! Just like it should taste! Thank you thank you for coming up with such a great idea!!!! UPDATE - I still love this recipe! Use it all the time to make cake without tons of leftovers. You can also make two of different flavors and layer them and still not have too much left over."
"This recipe was perfect for me and my boyfriend. I had been craving a cake, but knew it would be a bad idea to fix it (we would gobble it down in a heartbeat). This made just enough for us to savor."
"Thank you for this! Unlike other reviers, DH and could very easily sit down and eat an entire cake in a day or so, so this helps us out tremndously! I ommitted the vegetable oil and used 1/3 cup light vanilla yogurt (for moistness) and used it as a base for 3-points Better Than Sex Cake (# 130796). So yummy, I made a second one following the directions as written and tested it on my brother (very anti-health food- LOL). He scarfed it all up. Definite winner in our house, thanks so much!"
"Just the right amount of cake for a 2 person household. Lasted us 4 days. Thanks!"
"I came across this and realised, i just made these last night, I made mine into cupcakes however and added chocolate chips, it works excedianly well. thumbs up, this is a top recipe and i recomend it to anyone, Miss Pixie x x x "
"This is great! Makes six good sized cupcakes and tastes just like a "normal cake." Nice because it's just hubby and me- we don't eat an entire two-level cake in a week or so- just not practical. Maybe not low fat but certainly helps keep proportion sizes right- cake mix itself said 12 servings I've already gotten 12 cupcakes out with about another batch or two left. Will use again and again! Thanks!"
