Ingredients

Cakes

6
tablespoons Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
1
egg
2
tablespoons milk
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
tablespoon Jell-O™ strawberry-flavored gelatin
1
tablespoon hot water

Strawberry Cream Syrup

tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1
tablespoon strawberry-flavored gelatin

Toppings

1/2
cup whipped topping
2

Directions

  • 1 Lightly grease 2 (14- to 16-oz) mugs with vegetable oil using paper towel.
  • 2 In medium bowl, place cake mix. With whisk, beat in egg, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 tablespoon oil. In small cup, dissolve 1 tablespoon gelatin in hot water. Beat into cake batter. Divide batter evenly between mugs, about 1/2 cup in each mug.
  • 3 Microwave mugs on High 30 seconds. Let stand 5 seconds. Microwave on High 30 seconds longer. Let stand 5 seconds. Cake is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 4 Using bamboo skewer or sharp knife, gently poke several holes in each mug cake.
  • 5 To make Strawberry Cream Syrup, in small microwavable bowl, beat both milks with whisk to blend. Microwave on High 30 seconds or until hot. Beat in 1 tablespoon gelatin. Pour half of the cream syrup over each cake. Let cake stand 2 minutes or until cream syrup is absorbed.
  • 6 Top each cake with 1/4 cup whipped topping; drizzle each with 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup. Garnish each cake with 1 strawberry and 2 chocolate sticks. Serve immediately. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

If cakes are not done after a total of 1 minute of microwaving on High, microwave for an additional 15 seconds on High.
