Ever have a hankering for cake but don't want to make a huge mess? Or need a quick and easy dessert last minute? This 3-2-1 mug cake is like magic! And best of all, once you make the mix, you can store it in a cool, dry place and you'll have enough to make lots and lots of single-serve cakes! 


  • 1 angel food cake mix
  • 1 cake mix, any flavor


  • Mix ingredients together well, and store in an airtight container.
  • When ready to make a cake, put 3 tablespoons of the cake mixture and 2 tablespoons of water into a microwave safe mug. Microwave for 1 minute. Remove carefully, as the mug will be hot! The texture of the finished cake will be spongy due to the angel food cake mix. 

Want to make it extra special? Top with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream, then drizzle with the sundae syrup of your choice. You can even top it all off with sprinkles!
