Little Wait/Little Weight Cake in a Mug

on 02/08/2012

A couple days ago, Ashley asked if i were saving any of the cake mixes for any reason.  Nah, just got them while they were on sale, so have at it.  Less than 10 minutes later, she shows up with a steaming mug.  How sweet!  She brought a cup of tea!  Ha!  Guess again.  She brought CAKE!  Ooooooh!  Cake!

Now you’ve probably seen the mug cake/cake-in-a-mug things before as i have.  This is even better because it is a lighter version.  Some brilliant person got the idea of mixing a box of cake mix (any flavor, any brand) with a box of angel food cake mix so that you only have to add water.  Genius!  Of course, you could add other liquids in place of water.  Use a chocolate cake mix and add coffee–mocha cake!  Or a lemon cake mix and add pineapple juice–sunshine cake!  Carrot cake mix with V-8–super carrot cake!  And Jackie Chan smiles and doesn’t have to karate chop you.  Okay, got carried away there.

Only drawback with these…really hot when they first come out (so blow, blow, blow!) and…doggone, you just want to keep eating them!

Thank you, Ashley, you little muggins you!  ;0)

Cake in a Mug

1 box of cake mix (any flavor or brand)

1 box of angel food cake

Mix cake mixes together in a container that can be sealed.

Single serving:  1/3 cup of cake mix with 3 tablespoons of water.  Mix thoroughly in a larger mug.  Microwave for one minute.  Can spray with cooking oil spray before adding mixture but cleans up fairly easily without it.
