Oh my! I found this totally new way to make Cakes in a Mug and guess what! They taste amazing! When doing cakes or anything in a mug really, you are taking the good with the bad. Some people swear it tastes just like the dessert that you are trying to make into a single serving and some say it tastes bad. I am always trying to find ones that taste good! So imagine my delight when I found a new recipe for any type of cake in a mug, that tasted like real cake. At first I was like “ooo I have to try that” and then my second reaction was “hmm..I have had some bad ones, so lets just see!”
I decided on Coconut cake because it is one of my favorites. The process is really simple but pay attention!
- 1 box of yellow cake mix
- 1 box of angel food cake mix
- put in a container and mix well
I know, I know, so many steps and we are all so busy. But I promise if you just try it, it will be over very quickly! The ratio is 3-2-1 ( super secret formula here- so shhhh)
- 3 tbsp. of the cake mix
- 2 tbsp. of water
- 1 minute in the microwave
Seriously, that is the super secret formula! Some things to keep in mind while mastering this complicated treat:
- You can use any cake flavor but it must be mixed with angel food cake every time
- Sometimes angel food cake has the egg whites in a separate package, add them in
- Do not over mix, your cake will have holes and be super spongey
Some of you have noticed that I put my stuff on plates or in another mug after making it. I do that because I don’t like to eat out of the same thing I just cooked in. It is just a personal preference and you can do it however you like. Here is another image of the cakey goodness:
I would like to thank The Hidden Pantry for this recipe. Rock on Aunt Betty, Rock on!
