Duncan Hines Keto Friendly Cake Cups are quick and easy to prepare. Simply add 2 tablespoons of water and 1-2 tablespoons of melted butter.

The single-serve cups offer a convenient way to prepare a warm snack or dessert for one with minimal effort and clean-up. Beyond the new keto-friendly collection, traditional varieties of Duncan Hines single-serve cake cups are also available in a wide range of indulgent flavors.
