There are some days where I feel I need to take a time out for myself. It’s usually right after picking up my kids from school and my husband walks in the door. As soon as he has settled in from work I take a few minutes to myself to catch my breath. I need to do this, it’s almost like meditating. After all, I still need to help with homework, take the kids to their after school programs, start on dinner and wrap up bath time. Running a household is no joke, and moms get burned out too! Usually my sweet tooth spikes during those moments and I find myself looking for a little indulgence. One of the greatest joys of being an adult is sneaking in dessert before dinner!
Now that I know about Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1, I know my mommy time outs will be exactly what I envision. A warm treat just for me, ready in about a minute, that is easy to clean up without having to use bowls and pans to bake. The single serving portions means there won’t be leftover or waste. I also found out that Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 can be customized to my tastebuds – so I can add a little flavored creamer, maybe a bit of coffee, or any other liquid to truly tailor it to my mood.
The Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 Chocolate Lover’s Cake caught my eye first. This delectable treat was so easy to make. I emptied one cake pouch into a mug with just 3 tablespoons of water (you can add any liquid you want) I gave it a quick stir to make sure it was thoroughly blended and cooked it for a little over 1 minute. Out came a rich, smooth chocolate cake- smelling delicious and perfectly warm. The taste was just what I would expect from a chocolate cake, except it was warm, which I LOVE. There’s something about warm chocolate cake that screams COMFORT FOOD! Paired with a bit of vanilla ice cream, it’s perfection! Now, I know the pictures just don’t do it justice, but take it from me, this cake was the perfect consistency and had the right balance of sweetness and chocolate.
There are 18 varieties to choose from. The next flavor I’ll be trying soon is German Chocolate Cake! You can find Duncan Hines for 1 at your local grocery store in the cake mix aisle. Find out more about Duncan Hines Perfect Size for One!
