If you're a fan of super-easy desserts, you'll be thrilled to know that you can now make a single serving of cake -- just for you! -- in minutes, thanks to my latest creation while quarantined. No need to make a WHOLE cake and then try to avoid it for the rest of the day after you’ve had one slice. We’ve ALL been there…

Happy chewing!
