I don't think I've posted this before... well, hopefully I haven't. This is a great thing to have on hand for those sudden chocolate cravings - or if you find that standard dessert recipes just make way more than you can eat before the rest goes moldy.
To make the mix:
1 box chocolate cake mix (Duncan Hines is safe)
1 box chocolate instant pudding mix (check the ingredients - Jello brand is safe)
Combine the 2 mixes well and store in an airtight container with the following instructions...
WHEN YOU WANT CAKE:
Spray a LARGE mug with cooking spray. Lightly beat together 1 egg white (see note) and 2 tbsp water in the mug. Add 1/2 cup of the mix and stir well. Microwave on HIGH 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
Top as desired - I like a spoonful of cherry or raspberry all-fruit jam and a dollop of lite cool whip, but Hershey's Lite chocolate syrup (dairy-free!) or a simple icing of confectioners' sugar and a little soy milk work too - and eat warm! (And yes, it's good plain too!)
I have no idea what the fat content of this is, but I've been eating it safely for years, and I'm really sensitive to fats, so it can't be *too* bad!
NOTE: Do NOT use anything larger than a LARGE egg white. If you typically buy extra-larges or jumbos, you'll be using too much egg white!
You can also substitute 1-2 tbsp Egg Beaters... adjust the water accordingly so you end up with 4 tbsp of "liquid" total. (Thanks for the tip, jen!)
