Healthy Single-Serving Red Velvet Microwave Cake
When it comes time to eat the last slice of cake, it’s always a sad moment. Why can’t cakes last for forever?!?
Okay, I’m done with my pity party. So now I’ll explain how I satisfy my Red Velvet Cake cravings without baking an entire cake, and without getting that upsetting “last slice feeling.”
A single-serving microwave cake that takes 5 minutes to make and 5 minutes to “bake!” Oh, and you can make this healthy cake multiple times a day and for an entire week if you want to. It’s that good for you
I was going to make a nutrition label for this microwave cake regardless, but I thought I would compare it to the nutrition label of a similar microwave cake recipe. I have been slightly obsessed with Kirbie’s Cravings for years now, and the number of microwave cakes on the blog is mind blowing… and mouther watering. They look so good! Sadly though, I could never get myself to actually make them as they’re made with bleached flour, lots of sugar, oil, butter and all… so I made a healthified version! The Kirbie’s Cravings label is on the left, the Desserts with Benefits label is on the right:
MIND. BLOWN. I didn’t know 800 calories could even fit into a tiny mug! Apparently it can… nonetheless, I would much rather choose 310 natural calories over 800 artificial calories. And I would also like to avoid the 57g of sugar (thats nearly 5 tbs of sugar in one sitting).
If you want to see the nutrition label of the Kirbie’s Cravings recipe, of both the cake and the frosting, click on the image below to zoom in… it’s kind of scary, so be warned:
Yes. One thousand one hundred calories, 80g fat and 3/4 cup of sugar all in a small serving. I think my mind is actually blown to bits now…
This bite of cake will save me though
