If you love the idea of cake-in-a-mug, you need to know about the latest cake invention: the “cakewich”.
Queensland mum Nicola Leonard was inspired to experiment with cake mix and a sandwich press after reading about a similar method on social media.
“I saw a post online about someone who made ‘perfect eggs every time’ in a jaffle maker — so I got out our deep dish Kmart sandwich press and thought, why not cake?” the 27-year-old mother of four told news.com.au.
“I was actually surprised it worked as well as it did — and the kids loved them.”
Ms Leonard said that she only uses two tablespoons of chocolate cake mix and it takes just four minutes in a sandwich press to cook.
“The first time I did it I used a Coles 75 cent cake mix and it was so easy — I have also used the Greens mix and they both came out so yummy,” she said.
“They came out so fluffy and soft inside.
“My husband Daniel and I loved them and so did the kids.”
“Next time I’m going to try brownie mix and I was thinking berries would go so well in the middle,” she said.
Ms Leonard’s cakewich has caused a stir on social media.
“I posted it on a Kmart hack group and they all liked the idea — I love the group because the hacks are normally fun, useful and cost effective which is great when you have a big family like I do.
“I have been surprised at how much people loved it — I have borrowed hack ideas off the page so much its nice to have a hack that I can share.”
The savvy hack has been given the thumbs up on the Kmart Hacks and Decor page.
“Like a boss,” one woman wrote.
“I wish I hadn’t seen this — it is going to be dangerous,” joked another.
