Microwave cake

I Love Betty Crocker Warm Delights!!! They are delicious and convenient, but sadly, a bit pricey. I have tried microwave mug cakes. Gross! When I heard my MIL discussing how one of my cutie nieces made microwave cakes using a cake mix I knew I needed to give it a try.
You will need: (for a 2 serving cake, that I of course will eat all by myself, use the following recipe. Cut recipe in half for single serve.)
1/2 cup cake mix
3 tablespoons water
1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Stir cake mix and chocolate chips with water until completely moistened.

Microwave for 65 seconds. If cake still appears wet, microwave for an additional 5 secs at a time until all wet spots are gone.

It definitely needs the chocolate chips or frosting. I am working on a recipe for the fudgy filling.
You can use any cake mix. Be sure to try them all and get crazy creative with your add ins. I am thinking Carmel bits will be handy. You may have to try it over and over agian. Just remember cake eaten in the name of science does not hurt you. It's for the greater good.

Such a great idea! I like the eating for science idea! Sadly, I just started my "eat healthy, bo more treats" 2 days ago! BUT in the name of science, I think I can make that work!

If you use the hot fudge topping and drizzle it on the top like a warm delight before putting it int he microwave, it works great for the fudgey filling.
