Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)
Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.
Such a bummer.
There are legitimate days when you just need a single serving of cake (right, ladies? And I won’t discriminate – guys too), and I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t have to make an entire cake just to get a decent slice of it.
But what if you could have a single serving cake that tastes like it’s worth the calories (no rubbery, flavorless cakes here!), is made in five minutes, and is full of wholesome, nourishing ingredients? That day has come, friends.
I don’t blame you if you’re a little skeptical about this cake at first…because who would have thought? But give it a try, especially if you keep a pretty well-stocked healthy pantry and have all the ingredients on hand. You won’t believe how amazing this cake is.
When I was in the development process for this recipe, it became a nightly ritual for about a week straight (purely for testing purposes, of course), until I realized that I was sort-of defeating the purpose of a single-serving cake. But it is so good I really didn’t care.
So go ahead and make this, but be warned…it might become a new nightly routine. ;)
