Arghhh.... so you forgot to make a dessert to take for your kid to the bbq..... OR worse still, forgot to make some cupcakes to take to the party!
I don't know how many times I've done this and am up at 1am still icing cupcakes haha.
So I thought I'd find some recipes for you that you could whip up in minutes for such emergencies. I don't really use my microwave much at all these days, but in emergencies like this I think they can be pretty handy.
There were quite a few recipes to choose from but I skipped all of the ones with lots of ingredients..... this is a list for when you're in a serious hurry!
The last recipe by Low Carb Yum is my fav and I want to try that for sure - she took it out of the small Pyrex bowls she cooked it in and iced it like a cake and it looks so cool :-)
Some of these recipes do have eggs and nuts but all are gluten free, or have gluten free instructions.
