Quick Personalized Mug Cake

This recipe is one of my favorites. It makes a lot of cake but, the dry ingredients and sit indefinitely until you would like a cake. This simple recipe is so quick and delicious. You can make this as long as you have cake mix and water. This can be make in a bowl or mug and not fall over. They are rather impressive in the way that they are extremely airy and they don't just fall over into a pile of crumbs. Also this can be personalized in many ways with many different toppings. All in all this is an amazing cake and should always be on hand.


One box of angle food cake.
One box of any cake mix that is not angle food
Your choice of toppings
Your choice of garnish

Start by whisking the angel food cake and your choice of boxed cake mix together.

Pour into a plastic bag.
 And ( this is personal preference) write "1/3 cup mix with 3 TBSP water".

And that's all.
 Your finished, just add 1/3 of a cup of mix to your bowl or mug. 

Add three TBSP water and mix very well. At this point it should be very foamy.

Add your topping: see tip ( it will sink to the bottom of the cup or bowl in microwave).

Microwave for one minute.
Remove from the microwave and turn out onto a plate.

And add your garnish like whipped cream, mint, coffee beans, or maraschino cherries.


Chocolate Upside Down Cake: put hot fudge sauce in the bottom of a mug and pour the batter over the top.

For a Caramel Cake: drizzle caramel sauce over the batter and don't mix.

Your choice of toppings.

Beat and measure your egg. And add it to your mug.

Dissolve the instant coffee powder in the coffee. Add to the egg.

Melt the butter and pour into the egg mixture.

Add the sugar.

Mix this together until more or less smooth.

And top with a topping like chocolate chips or marshmallows or both.
