I am in the middle of packing for a four day trip to Chicago.
I hate packing. I always forget something. Always. One time it was my toothbrush, another time it was my pajamas. Another my hairbrush. I am mildly anxiety ridden anyway, and packing doesn't help. But it's something I must do. So, what better way to decrease packing anxiety by whipping up something sweet and easy, perfect with a cup 'o' coffee??
I took my Betty Crocker coffeecake recipe (you'll find it here) and used it like cupcake batter. It worked better than expected!! The recipe made 9 little cakes which eliminates the partially-eaten, stale coffeecake in the kitchen scenario. And, an unexpected bonus - I'll take a few with me to the airport because they're easy to carry! I'm sure having one or two and a nice cup of coffee will eliminate some of that packing stress!! If nothing else works, caffeine and sugar baby!!!
