The Giz Wiz gets Mugged

Episode 1687 (2:09:15)


Need to satisfy your sweet tooth while in isolation? Dickie D suggests 3-2-1 Mug Cakes. They're simple. Mix together in a big ziplock bag a box of Angel Food Cake Mix and a box of any other variety of cake mix you like. Then in a mug, make simple little one-serving cakes with 3 tablespoons of the mix, two tablespoons of water, and 'bake' in the microwave for 1 minute. It couldn't be simpler, or could it. Surprise! Duncan Hines has come out with a line of mug cake mixes ...the Mug Cake Strawberry Shortcake Flavored Mix with Cream Cheese Frosting is tasty. They call it a Decadent strawberry shortcake mug dessert with cream cheese frosting. Dick calls it pretty good for something you can make in about a minute & twenty seconds, depending on your microwave. There are lemon, carrot, brownie mug mixes too. The Strawberry Shortcake was just $2.50 on Amazon and it makes 4 cakes with icing. That's less than 65 cents a cake! And kids will love making their own desserts. The Strawberry Shortcake has 410 calories, but it could be cut in two. Duncan Hines suggests it tastes best warm.
