Cake In A Cup Recipe, with Flaked Almonds

I’m not really a cake hand though my kids and the man love their cakes.  I’d rather have a bar of Dairy Milk personally, or maybe a Green & Blacks if I feel flush.

Finding simple and easy ways to give the kids a cake led me to trying a cake in a cup a while back.  I couldn’t say I liked it, but the kids did and that’s all that matters.
