The Food Network’s instant chocolate cake recipe and Grant’s no-measure yogurt cake are two easy cake recipes for kids. The first recipe bakes quickly in the microwave, while the second uses a yogurt cup as a measure, making it simple for children.
To make the Food Network’s instant chocolate cake combine 1/4 cup of flour, 5 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder in a large mug. Add 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of milk, 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and a dash of salt and vanilla extract. Stir ingredients in the mug until smooth, and microwave for two minutes.
Prepare Grant’s no-measure yogurt cake by adding one small 6- to 8-ounce container of plain Greek yogurt into a mixing bowl. Using only the yogurt container as a measuring cup, add 1 cup of canola oil, 1 cup of sugar, 2 eggs and the zest of a lemon, and beat to combine. Slowly add in 2 cups of self-rising flour and a pinch of salt, and mix until the batter is free of lumps. Bake in a cake pan at 350 F for 35 minutes.
