Crayon Cakes

cooking spray
2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 (17.4-oz) box cinnamon swirl quick bread mix
1/2 cup plain candy-coated chocolate pieces

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Coat eight cups of large-size muffin pan (or mini loaf pans) with cooking spray.
  1. Whisk together in large bowl: eggs, water, and oil. Stir in both bread and spice mixes (from bread mix) until blended.
  2. Divide batter equally among pan(s). Place one tablespoon of chocolate pieces on each muffin and stir to distribute through batter (some pieces should remain on top). Bake 20–25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean. Place pan(s) on a wire rack to cool. Just before serving, drizzle with icing (from bread mix), if desired. Serve.

Aprons Advice

  • Complete your meal with green beans, fresh salad blend, and cornbread.
  • You can cook the chili in a slow cooker. Combine everything (except beef); cook on low 4–6 hours. About 10 minutes before serving, brown the beef; then stir into chili (this keeps meat from drying out).
