Any Flavor Microwave Cake in a Mug

This is our Christmas present choice. We are making little baskets for all of our family and friends. We are all about convenience and ease of recipe, so it uses box cake mix to make recipes easily reproduceable for the recipients. Enjoy and share with your college bound students, teachers, but maybe not the dentist.


  1. Mix dry ingredients with wet and mix well. Microwave for 3 minutes. Enjoy warm with homemade whipped cream. (add ingredients into power mixer and whip until lost peaks are formed.).
  2. We especially liked Spice, Lemon, and Carrot varieties for the cake. The skies the limit. :O).

This was great! I had previously mixed 1 box cake mix w/ one box vanilla pudding mix so I could whip up cupcakes at a moments notice (at my 4 year old's request). I had used another "cake in a cup" recipe but this turned out better. I use silicon cupcake forms and put in real oven at 350 for 10-15 min. because I like the way they turn out in the oven better than the microwave. I frosted while warm with a buttercream frosting and my boys (husband & son) LOVED them!
