Quickest Yellow Cake Ever & A Special Bday!

Did you know that you can type the word desserts with one hand? It's a fabulous convenience.

Another fabulous convenience is this mini yellow bundt cake mix. It popped out of my head (based on lots of attempts to bake a cake in under 25 minutes, from start to finish) and, with these awesome little bundt pans, it is now possible! And this makes 3 bundt for you, one for your spouse/roommate, and fight over. Yes.

Quickest Yellow Mini Bundt Cake
Makes 3 mini bundt cakes

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 TB butter/margarine, softened
1 egg + 1 egg white
Dash of salt
1/2 cup skim milk
Toppings: Frozen berries, whipped cream, caramel or chocolate sauce (you choose)

step one: Take the berries out of the freezer. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. (I know, this breaks all baking rules)

step two: Pour batter (no bumps) into 3 nonstick mini bundt cake pans. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes, then flip cakes onto a dessert plate. Top with cold berries, whipped cream, caramel sauce, and/or chocolate sauce.

"Why do we need cake today?" you might ask.
My sweet husband takes care of Sam and me every day, so it's time we treat him. Here are some of the highlights so far...

Sam dressed up in a bowtie for the occasion.
Balloons filled with "choices" (this or that) for the day's activities.

Some of the day's plans...yay!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Happy eating!
