Five minutes of prep, one bowl, 3 ingredients, 12 minutes baking = one happy little cupcake, just for you!
In other words, so doable for a day that needs to be kicked up a sweet notch.
This recipe is simplified with the use of cake mix, which is actually really fun to have on hand. I keep yellow cake mix in a jar for all those “cake batter” recipes floating around the blog/Pinterest world.
Some recipes that have caught my eye recently:
Cake Batter Truffles
I just realized that I missed the opportunity of super festive sprinkles for my cupcakes! They add so little flavor but the happy/cute/squeal factor is undeniable.
At least I remembered the chocolate. A nice dollop of leftover chocolate cream cheese from my Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.
Greek Yogurt Cupcake for One
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
2 T Greek yogurt (I used vanilla)
1 T water
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix ingredients. Do not over stir.
Spoon into greased muffin tin.
Bake 11-13 minutes until lightly browned.
Top with powdered sugar icing, frosting, or chocolate cream cheese.
Yum. This cupcake totally satisfied my cupcake craving, and I loved the slight tang from the yogurt. Easy prep, minimal clean-up, and convenient single serving — give it a try and make your day a little sweeter!
