A mom’s work is never done, right? Between kids, homework, sports, cooking, cleaning…. the husband. There’s a LOT to do. And no, I’m not saying my husband doesn’t help because he does but I still feel as though I’m always running around and my brain never stops. When I go out shopping for myself I usually always end up returning with arms full of clothes and/or treats for… my kids. I don’t know what happens but I almost instantly feel guilty that I’m spending money on myself when I was already given the reward of going to the store by myself. #MomGuilt. It’s the worst.
Some days though, we just need a moment to ourselves. We need to recharge and relax. I want to put on my favorite show, jump into bed with my favorite treat and just breath (maybe locking the door behind me). It does wonders. One of my all time favorite treats is cake. My goodness, I can always go for cake and I don’t even care what kind it is. The problem is that I never bake it. My kitchen somehow explodes with dishes and cake batter everywhere so I just avoid the situation altogether. Because who would have to come behind and clean it up? ME!
Well, guess what? I think Duncan Hines was listening because those geniuses have thrilled my dessert loving heart with their new Perfect Size for 1 desserts! I can’t you guys! They are available in 18 glorious varieties just ready for you to hide in the closet with while ignoring your kids fighting. Wait… that’s not what I mean. But really, you don’t need to share. You can’t. There is only enough for one person. HA!
Decadently delicious and ready in about a minute? Yes.
18 varieties each using only simple ingredients? Absolutely.
How to enjoy:
– Drive to the store.
– Look at the display and try to pick just one Perfect Size for 1.
– Throw all of them in your cart because how can you pick just one or two!
Once you’re home that’s when things get easy. Don’t even touch that oven. Don’t grab any mixing bowls. Don’t! All you need is your favorite (microwave safe) mug, water, and the Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 you’ve chosen to be the first sacrifice.
In about 1 minute you have a mug full of decadence waiting for you. Each box comes with 4 packets so you could enjoy more than one if you wanted to but it’s best to set them aside and try a difference flavor each time. Naming all the flavor varieties would take me forever so I’ll spare you those details but just know they all sound amazing and one by one I’m trying them all. So far my favorites are the S’Mores Cake, Confetti Cake, German Chocolate Cake, and Carrot Cake. I will note that I think all of the cake varieties would be just that much better if they had little icing packets included. The cake is tasty, moist, and delicious but icing belongs on a cake, amiright?
I like to add a little touch of chocolate to my S’mores Cake to make it that much more glorious. Seriously, the obsession with this flavor is in full swing.
More importantly, they even have a “Sunrise” category of Perfect Size for 1 treats! I know they aren’t *meant* for breakfast but will the police come for you if you go that route? Doubtful. So do it, my friends. DO IT! There’s Cinnamon Coffee Cake, Blueberry Muffin, Corn Muffin, Chocolate Chip Muffin, Banana Bread, and Apple Cinnamon Muffin. I mean, c’mon! They all sound and look like perfection.
