German Chocolate Microwave Cupcake

"A delicious German chocolate microwave cake mix for making personalized desserts or snack. Great for work, college students, kids, and adults of all ages. Works well as a food gift too. A little back ground: Angel food cake mix can be used as a key rising and binding agent. Angel food cake mix has the equivalent of about 6 egg (12 egg whites) plus extra baking soda with dried citric acid. The baking soda with the dried citric acid causes a foaming action like vinegar and baking soda, which when combined with all the powdered egg whites causes the cake mix to become an angel food cake without all the beating of egg whites when you make one from scratch, a little food chemistry in action. This means than 1 box of angel food cake mix will support 2 boxes of cake mix just fine. It acts as an egg substitute. Due to the lack of oil, baking in an oven is an issue but not so in microwaving where oil is less much important as it doesn’t dry out so much do to the fast cook time. This is nice to know as you can use it as a base for other mixes such as brownie, pound cake, or quick breads that you want to make in a microwave"

Ready In:
1 cup


  • 16 ounces angel food cake mix (one 16 oz box)
  • 30 12 ounces German chocolate cake mix, of choice (two 15.25 oz boxes)
  • 24 ounces butterscotch chips (two 12 oz bags)
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Put the 3 boxes of dry mix cake mixes and the 1 cup cocoa in a very large bowl. Mix dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  • Finely chop pecans. Then add 24 ounces butterscotch chips, 2 cups shredded dry coconut, 1 cup pecans finely chopped and blend in with the dry mix.
  • Place dry mix into airtight storage containers (1-quart wide mouth mason jars work well and can be used to give as gifts too).
  • How To Use: Place 1/3 cup dry mix in a 12 oz microwave safe cup and add 3 tbsp water. Stir mix and water completely. Consistency should be that of soft pudding or cake mix. Do not over stir. You will start to notice foaming action from baking soda and citric acid. Cook in microwave on high for 50 to 60 seconds. 5 to 10 seconds less time for more molten effect. Let rest for 3 mins after cooking to cool as it will be hot.
  • Mix and water can be scaled down to as little as 1 tbsp mix and 1 tsp water or up to 1/2 cup and 4 tbsp water. Small paper cups like dixie cups can be used to make bite sized portions. Topping like a tablespoon of ice cream or frosting can be added too.
