• 1 box Angel Food cake mix
  • 1 box cake mix – any flavor
  • water
  • 1 tub frosting – any flavor – optional


For the Cake Mix:

  1. Pour both boxes of dry cake mix into a gallon size Ziploc bag
  2. Zip it up tight and begin to shake it well to make sure cake mixes are combined thoroughly

For the Mug Cake (1 serving):

  1. In a clean mug (you do not need to grease the mug), combine 3 Tbsp of the combined cake mixes with 2 Tbsp of water
  2. Stir well until completely combined – batter will get foamy as you stir
  3. Then pop it into the microwave
  4. Cook on high for 1 minute
  5. Add a little frosting on top
  6. When it’s finished, carefully take it out of the microwave (mug will be very warm).
  7. Dab a little frosting on top (optional) and dig into the warm cake. Or you can run your finger or a butter knife gently around the inside edge of the mug. Flip mug over on a plate. Add a dollop of frosting on top.


  1. Keep your bag of cake mix stored in your dry and cool pantry for up to 2 months. Use any type of cake mix you like, but it has to be mixed with the Angel Food Cake mix for this to work properly.
  2. Feel free to play with different toppings depending on the flavor of cake you use. Whipped cream, canned fruit fillings or fresh fruit are all great toppings to try.
