Single Serving Baked Desserts

Quote  |  Reply
This may sound stupid but are there any single serving baked goods you can make? I don't really want to make a whole army of something but would like only one so I can control myself. Or if there isn't any baked desserts, do you know any good regular single-serving desserts?  Also,  calorie count for the dessert would  be appreciated.  Thanks

You can make a whole batch of cookie dough, separate it into one-cookie-sized chunks and freeze them.  When you want one, you can either bake or microwave it.

[However, that only works if you're not a cookie-dough eater... to me, the dough is more tempting than a baked batch of cookies!]

For almost any recipe, you can mix the dry ingredients for the whole recipe together and then store it in your pantry.  When you want a portion of it, just take that portion of the dry ingredients and add the proper ratio of wet ingredients and make it. 

You can also do this with packaged mixes; ie, you can easily make one brownie at a time with a brownie mix (just take 1/12 or so of the box and microwave it in a bowl with a bit of yogurt or canned pumpkin for an easy single-serving treat).
for a desert:

baked apples, stuffed with raisins. Normally the recipe has butter and sugar as well, but i think you could do it with none, (or just a tsp of each) and I think my dad even does them in the microwave.
Betty Crocker Warm Delights!

I'm in love with these!  They come in all different varieties and are like individual bowls of different desserts such as molten chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookie, cinnamon swirl cake, and peanut butter brownie.  They are about 350 cals a piece, but they cook in the microwave in about 1-2 minutes and are absolutely delicious! TRY THESE!
they make these new guilty pleasures that are like the betty crocker warm delights but instead of 350 cals they are only 200!!! you could still add half a cup of ice cream if you can manage the 350 calls. they had banana foster, chocolate with fudge and chocolate with caramel. i haven't had one yet but will hopefully try one soon
The Smart Ones desserts are all nice... Double serving lol but they're mostly under 200 cals per serving... New York Cheesecake and Cookie Dough Ice Cream are my favorites... Oh and Brownie A La Mode...
I like to make just small batches of normal desserts. Like take a brownie recipe, and only mix up an *8th of what it calls for, the put it in one or two cups of a muffin pan. then you have one or two little brownies. yum!

*Warning. May require using some crazy fractions. Just remember, a cup is 250 mL, a Tbsp 12mL and a tsp 4mL.
I don't know of any single serving desserts that you can bake, but I know of some that you can buy.

Take a fat free chocolate pudding cup (60 calories) and use that thing! Top with berries or cool whip, dip in banana slices, strawberries, or pinapple, or whatever else you can think of.

There are vitamuffin tops that are 100 calories, if I'm correct, and I hear they are just like real chocolate muffins, but loaded with vitamins!

Fiber One bars are 140 calories, taste like a candy bar, and pack in tons of fiber.

Luna bars are 180 calories and come in tons of flavors like Peanut Butter Cookie, Iced Oatmeal Raisin, and Chocolate Peppermint Stick. They have tons of iron, calcium, and 10g protein.
You can make no pudge brownies in a single serving. 
peel and slice one apple, toss in cinnamon, layer in a single serving baking dish, top with a quaker oatmeal package (I like the reduced sugar brown sugar cinnamon flavour) and a little water and bake at 350 (farenheit) for about 30-45 minutes.  Let cool for about 5 minutes and enjoy (if you're feeling very decadent add a small scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt on top!). 
You can keep cake mix from a box in a jar with a tight fitting lid.  Mix 1/2 cup of mix with 1/2 cup of applesauce.  put it into a small cake pan or mold, sprayed with non stick spray, and bake at 340 for about 10 minutes.  Comes out great!
Custards are really really simple and can do for 1.

Cup of milk, 1 egg, and sugar (or splenda) to taste.... and thats the base.

Can spice it up with nutmeg, vanilla, dried fruits, fresh fruits, cinnamon...really, just anything you like.

Then you can do a rice pudding with a cup of old rice.

Or bread pudding by taking old bread and pouring the base on top.
Two words:  Guiltless Gormet.  AMAZING.  They'll be in the organic section of your grocery store.  They're little bowls with a mix and a topping.  You mix the dry powder with 2Tbs of water, pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds, and out pops a delicious brownie or bananas foster!  I'm not kidding, they're amazing.  200cals, WORTH IT.
