Too Tired to Try Tuesday: 1-Minute Dixie Cup Cakes


Yes, you read that correctly. Cake you can make in 1 minute in your microwave in a freaking Dixie cup. Now you can eat cake all the time! Better yet, if you have older kids (think 8 and up), this is probably easy enough for them to make themselves. For you! You’re welcome. 🙂

Thank you Wendy at Around My Family Table for perfecting this fabulous idea!

What you’ll need:

  • Any flavor cake mix
  • Water
  • Dixie cups (3 oz or 12 oz)
  • Whatever toppings you want on your cake

Then, add your cake mix and water to the cup, add your cup to the microwave, add some time to that sucker, pull out your cake in a cup, and top that bad boy! Simple and tasty. And such an easy cleanup!

To see the complete recipe and Wendy’s cute post about how she came to perfect these quick little cake cups, click here. (And while you’re there, you should hang out awhile, she’s got some great stuff!)

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
