Need an easy, yet delicious treat to make for Valentine’s Day? This recipe for Red Velvet Cake in a Mug is perfect for you and your sweetie!
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and you know what that means… Yummy desserts!!
And when I think of Valentine’s Day treats, the first thing that comes to mind is ANYTHING red velvet. If Valentine’s were to have a taste to it, I’m sure it would taste like red velvet, let’s be serious.
Now let’s be even more serious, men. Women LOVE homemade baked goods. And I’m not going to make any assumptions, but my S/O can make a MEAN dish of Ramen. Aaaaaaand, that’s about it.
The great thing about my recipe is that not only does it taste AH-MAY-ZING, but it goes beyond the level of easy, like, super easy. Or something like that.
Also, I used a cake mix for my recipe, and I’ll tell you why. It seemed almost useless to get out a bunch of ingredients, just for two servings! At that point, you might as well make a whole cake! 😛
But I can guarantee that you can whip up this recipe in NO MORE than ten minutes, from start to finish. Now that’s a happy Valentine’s Day
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines) - divided
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- 6 tablespoons water, divided
- Evenly spilt the ingredients into two medium-large sized microwave-safe mugs. That means 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon of Red Velvet Cake Mix, 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and 3 of tablespoons water per mug. Stir until throughly combined and smooth.
- Microwave the mug cakes, one at a time, for 2 minutes on high. CAREFUL when handling mugs after microwaving, they will be HOT.
- Let cakes cool for at least 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle some powdered sugar, if desired. Enjoy!
