Canine chef - yes you can store the mixed powders in individual portions (in small plastic food containers or glass jars) and bake as needed. Probably months at room temp.
Here's a good basic one from some cute English guys (the "sorted" team) on YouTube
Also, all recipes has several.
Llast, some basic points and safety tips on google:
PS Assumed you wanted them to bake from scratch. If not, there's the classic short cut of mixing contents of one box each, cake mix & instant pudding mix. Then divide that powder in 8 portions. To each portion, add 1 large egg (2 oz), 1 tbsp oil, 1 to 3 tbsp water. Mix, microwave 2 to 2.5 minutes. Voila! Eat as is or garnish to taste.
On flavors one can mix and match to taste preference and - if needed - nut allergies, but I have found a chocolate cake mix (standard box, about 18 oz) and pistachio pudding mix (about 3 oz box) give lovely results.
Question on the cake mix/pudding mix option: Can you store the premixed dry ingredients and then bake individual cakes as desired?
Used recipe from food network . Yes from scratch and kids enjoyed making and eating :)
Yes! Check out this Two-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake from Lucky Peach:
Thx. There are so mAny recipes online and just wanted one someone used and liked.
I hope you and your kiddos enjoy! As everyone says, mug cakes are dangerously easy to make.... ;)
Thoughts on subbing dark brown sugar for light in cookie recipe?
Yes, Canine chef, the combined dry cake-pudding mix individual portions can be stored at room
temp and baked later. Probably months, maybe a year. I put them in small plastic food boxes or glass jars. Probably could go to work, with the egg oil water in another container, for a quick treat there.
Sorry for double post. The first one seemed to have disappeared; now it's back.
