How to Whip Up a Mug Cake

The process is a breeze.

Take one box of angel food cake mix and one box of any flavor cake mix (I personally love chocolate). Mix them together. You can use some immediately and store the rest in your pantry for later.

But let’s be real about a couple of things.

Does it Taste Good?

Absolutely! It beautifully caters to your chocolate cravings. It’s warm, chocolaty, and incredibly quick to make.

Since it’s a small portion, you don’t have to worry about adding a “major guilt trip” to your daily routine.

I’ve experimented with various flavors and settled on chocolate cake with mini chocolate chips and an array of fun toppings like sprinkles.

These Mini Rainbow Chocolate Chips are like a stroke of genius, right up there with sliced bread!

Tips for the Perfect Mug Cake

The cake mixture recipe is meant to be flexible and enjoyable! Feel free to play around with it and add whatever you have in your pantry.

If you want to double the recipe (using a larger mug, for instance), you can. Just add an extra 10 seconds in the microwave.

If you’re adding a garnish like whipped cream, keep in mind that it will melt if the chocolate cake is too hot. (though it tastes amazing, it might not look as pretty)

This sweet treat is like a warm hug in a mug!
