Have you ever had a craving for chocolate cake but didn’t feel like making a whole cake? Have I got a solution for you! This easy recipe is cheap, FAST, and super delicious!

All you need is three things:

  • Angel Food Cake Mix
  • Chocolate Cake Mix
  • water

I like to make a big batch and store it so I have something yummy for when the craving strikes!

How to Make a Mug Cake

The concept is easy.

One box angel food cake mix. One box any flavor cake mix. (I prefer chocolate) Combine. Use some immediately then store the rest in your pantry.

When ready to eat:

3 tablespoons cake mix

2 tablespoons water

1 minute in the microwave

And yes it is that easy!

But lets get real about a couple of things.

This cake does not compare to a homemade Perfect Chocolate Cake. Or a Homemade Yellow Cake. Or any from-scratch cake that you make.

What is does, quite beautifully actually, is serve a craving. It’s chocolate. It’s hot. It’s quick.

It’s a small portion so you don’t have to add ‘major guilt trip’ to your list of daily tasks.

I experimented with a LOT of flavors and settled on chocolate cake with mini chocolate chips and massive fun toppings with sprinkles.

Because, sprinkles.

These are Mini Rainbow Chocolate Chips which is right up there with sliced bread in terms of inventions that make my life awesome.

I just want to look at this picture and forget that there is a child climbing on top of my printer and pressing buttons with wild abandon.

Tips for the Perfect Mug Cake

The cake mixture recipe is meant to be fun and easy! Play with it. Have fun. Add whatever you have in the pantry! (I love the idea of a white cake with McCormick® Orange Extract in the summer!)

If you want to double the recipe (if you have a large mug as I did) you can. Simply add an additional 10 seconds in the microwave.

If you are adding a garnish like whipped cream, it will melt if the chocolate cake is hot. (which tastes amazing but doesn’t look as pretty)

This sweet treat is a hug in a mug!

    I made up the mug mix using devil and angel cakes mixes. WE made a few playing with it and it always seems dry. Suggestions?? Is there another recipe that gives a soufflé like texture?
