These New Instant Cupcakes Are the Easiest Desserts Ever

Ditch the parchment paper and make use of your microwave for instant desserts.

Baking is a science that comes down to choosing quality ingredients, combining the right amount of dry and wet parts together, and waiting about 20 minutes while the cake rises to perfection. They don't call it a labor of love for no reason! While homemade goodies are always special, there's a new product on the block that cuts your wait time to seconds! Miss Jones Baking Co. and Foodstirs both have delectable instant mug cakes that are just the epitome of instant gratification.

Miss Jones Baking Co. offers irresistible desserts in a cup including Fudgy Brownie, Confetti Pop Cake, and Warm Double Chocolate Chip Cake. All flavors range from 150 to 250 calories and come in a smart-serve cup that keeps your portion size under control. If you're looking for a low-cal option, opt for the Vanilla Cake in a Cup.

It's sweetened with cane sugar, flavored with real vanilla and has zero hydrogenated oils and artificial colors or flavors. All you have to do is add water and pop it in the microwave for 40 seconds!

Another option we love, Foodstirs, is a bit more indulgent and features organic minute mug cakes in three flavors: Molten Chocolate Chip, Celebration Confetti, and Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake. If you're watching your waistline but still want to treat yourself, go for the Celebration Confetti.

Instead of relying on artificial colors, Foodstirs dyes its decorative rainbow sprinkles with turmeric and fruit and veggie juices, so you'll find zero sketchy additives in this mug cake mix, which requires a minute in the microwave.

Next time you're up for some celebration or just craving a sweet treat, try these instant mug cakes. They come in single-serving packs—which means you won't reach for seconds or thirds— and the prep is so easy, you might just have to celebrate your birthday twice!
