Posts Tagged ‘Microwave Cake’

This recipe works like magic.  Once you prepare the basic dry mix, your ten year old will be able to do this all on his/ her own.  All it takes is a minute to mix water into the cake mix, and another minute in the microwave oven.  Before you can say ‘abracadabra’ the cake is ready to eat!

To Prepare the Cake Mix–

  • 2 cups of any store bought Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix
  • (The Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Mix also works)
  • 1 cup of my “Grandma’s Gluten Free Flour Mix”  (see Basics, or scroll to the top of the Cakes, Cookies and Desserts Section.
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar, or to taste (my grandkids prefer it without any sugar added—ready mixes are highly sweetened)
  • 3 teaspoons Egg Replacer
  • 1 level teaspoon baking soda

Store mix in a clean, dry container.

Note:  I add “ Grandma’s GF Flour Mix” for better texture and for adding some nutrition.  It also reduces the excessive sweetness of ready mixes.
