Red Velvet in a Minute
I eat cake all the time...freshly baked cake for one...please.
I stir up little cakes for myself and thought I'd share my recipe.
I made a quickie one in honor of Valentine's Day.
Really, no big mystery here as to the ingredients.
Cake mix and a little water.
Fill the cup about half way full with cake mix and add water.
Not a lot of water but just enough to make it the consistency of cake batter...which it is.
Pop in microwave for 1 minute.
It comes out super fluffy.
Add frosting if you like...I sprinkled on a little powder sugar today.
I usually make it plain.
I actually prefer it to baked cake.
It doesn't have any sort of toast flavor, just pure cake.
Don't over cook, though.
I'd been making muffins with pumpkin and cake mix for years when one
day I thought....I wonder if I only did water?
Works great...no need for oil or eggs.
Sorry the photos are a little fuzzy.
Snow storm here as I'm sure you probably have there.
I was lacking in sunshine and did the best I could.
I picked up that little fabric heart last week at Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts.
They had the cutest Valentine stuff!
Cute Easter too!
Now I'm going to make myself a big pot of Thai Coconut Soup.
I discovered this stuff a few weeks ago.
I throw in some veggies, a little coconut milk (often I skip this)
cilantro, green onion, lemon grass and
I've got a delicious soup.
One that makes me happy to be snowed in.
This soup is vegetable based too!
No chickens die to make this soup.
I usually pour it over a little rice.
Hope you are staying warm!
I've been snuggling with the weenies.
Last night Violet went out in the middle of the snow storm and just sat there in the middle of the
yard staring at me.
She wouldn't come in.
Harvey ran out and immediately turned and ran back in.
Sally wouldn't even budge off the sofa.
Franklin looked out and shook his head.
But Violet! She sat out there for a good 5 minutes.
I had to walk away from the door...it was too frigid!
Finally, she came in all covered in snow.
Happy as could be.
"Well, glad you decided to come in Miss Polar Bear"... I said.
"Hmph"...she said and off to bed she went.
I don't know what made her want to sit out there in well below freezing temperatures.
