cake in a cup

Well, who knew how many lives out there had been touched by Spam? I especially liked the stories about crosshatching the Spam and sticking in cloves. That actually made me laugh out loud.
After the salt lick, I felt the need for a little sweet treat. We are out of chocolate and ice cream and even Jell-o snacks (I told you I ate Spam, so now I can confess to liking those little fruit and Jell-o snacks), and then I remembered a purchase from months ago:

The box says, “MOKO MOKO COCOA CHIFFON.” Seriously. Kelli over at the fun food blog lovescool wrote about these a while back. Okay, she wrote about them here. Anyway, the box comes with two pouches of cake mix. You mix one pouch with one egg in a mug/cup then nuke it for a minute or so. Here is the result:

Sorry, not a very pretty photo. Anyway, it is a little bit rubbery/spongy like how angel food cake can be a tad rubbery, but I LIKE that kind of rubbery, so I declare it a winner!

    by jello snacks do you mean those little bitty asian ones where you just suck the thing out and it’s all slurpy and gross sounding? i love those… especially refridgerated in the summer, it’s so good!!!

    Am I the only person who feels the packaging is a tad bit misleading?

    I love those fruit and Jello cups. They are the perfect midafternoon snacks. My favorite is Mandarin Oranges in Orange Jello, but the Pineapple in Lime Jello is pretty good too.
    That is such a cute little cup of cake!

    I love MokoMoko… Anyway, I reckon that Japanese mugs are a bit smaller than the standard U.S. mugs (just like everything else over there.)
    I usually drizzle a bit of Jamaican rum through the middle wwith a dollop of whip cream and call it a day.

    Yum! I like the rum addition too:)
    I received my pouch today. Thanks so much for the candies! I think all ebay sellers should be so sweet. Can’t wait to start using this for my knitting accessories.

    I’ve made those things too! I found them in the supermarket here in Tokyo. I agree re: slight rubberyness – but found that if you make a hole in the top when it’s hot and put vanilla icecream in, it turns into a nice puddingy dessert thing. The maple syrup flavour is good too.
    Unfortunately they demolished the supermarket that I used to buy them at and I haven’t found an alternative supply…

    p.s. I am dying to get ahold of one of your bags!!! I’m patiently watching your ebay store. 🙂

    I also received my totebag. You should go straight to the top with the ebay crowd. Thanks for the sweets!!

    That reminds me of a recipe I saw here:
    Donna Hay’s chocolate cakes served up in a mug.

    my local japanese shop [Sanko on Queen West] only carries the yellow cake version [vanilla?] of this one. But Sunrise Mart in Soho had three versions — chocolate, lemon and mocha. I got all three.
    They are rubbery as hell and evade the spoon as you try to eat them. I LOVE them.

    oh, p.s. the shape of the puffy bit on top totally depends on the mug you use. a smaller/thinner mug will give you more puff on top. 🙂
