Review: Betty Crocker - Rainbow Chip Cake Mug Treats

Betty Crocker's Rainbow Chip Mug Treats features individual packets of rainbow chip cake mix that can be quickly prepared by adding water or milk into a mug or cup, mixing, and then giving it a go in the microwave. Packets of rainbow chip frosting is included to add as you like.

A 13.9-oz box contains 4 packets of mix and 4 packets of frosting and cost me $2 on sale (it's usually about $3).

These come together pretty quickly. I gave it a good stir until all the lumps were gone and popped it in the microwave for a minute. The cake sticks pretty well to the mug so you might want to try giving it a spray with cooking oil if you wanted it to pop out as opposed to eating it in the mug.

I think you might have to play around with the microwave settings a bit to get the best result but the first one I made turned out just fine--it was relatively moist without any random uncooked portions. The crumb was dense with fairly even air bubbles and the little rainbow chips added a pop of sweetness and a bit of creaminess.

The frosting was fairly thick and very sweet. Squeezing a little bit of frosting on each spoonful of cake was very easy with the packet. You can also put down a layer every inch or so as you work your way down to the bottom of the mug.

Overall, Betty Crocker's Rainbow Chip Cake Mug Treats turned out quite decently. The texture was okay, the cake wasn't dry, and the flavor was nice. Most of all, it's really convenient, especially if you just want one portion of confetti/birthday cake/rainbow chip cake and/or don't want to be bothered with making a cake.
