"anything goes" 90 second dessert

Carol turned us on to this simple and fun treat! These individual desserts are a huge hit because they're so fun and so easy! The ingredients are "anything goes"! We've had them with bottled sliced peaches, coconut, heath toffee bits, chocolate chips, fresh cherries chopped, broken up candy bars, cherry pie filling and so on. I can't wait to have a little gathering to let everyone make their own.

You will need:

  • Cake mix, any flavor or flavors you choose
  • Water
  • Toppings such as chocolate chips, M&Ms, Reeses pieces, Toffee Bits, Coconut, nuts, fruit (bottled, canned or fresh), cake sprinkles, mini-marshmallows, syrups, you get the idea...
  • measuring cups (1/2 cup and 1/3 cup)

In regular cereal size bowl, mix 1/2 cup dry cake mix and 1/3 cup of water. Stir with a fork until it's no longer lumpy. Add any toppings you desire. Microwave cook for 90 seconds. (My microwave takes 100 seconds for the fruity ones.) Eat! You can top the cake with whipped cream or icecream or, again, anything goes! Enjoy!

This is great. I just have one question...why do we need the 1/3 measuring cup if we use 1/2 cup of cake mix and 1/2 cup of water? Did I miss something. Thanks!!

Because I'm a dork and can't type! Thanks, Cindy. It's 1/3 cup of water! Will change that right now!

Not a dork, just a busy mom!! I have done the same thing, heck sometimes I even type my name wrong... Thanks for the recipe, can't wait to try it.

Sophia - since your the cooking expert I always turn to! How would you turn this into a cinnamon roll type treat? Like Chili's sweet shot?

Thanks for sharing!
