Chocolate Mug cake

Welcome to the all new Crafting Corner. With the Christmas Season fast approaching, yes… really is coming up fast, it’s time to start thinking about gifts! Each week we will be giving you fresh new gifting ideas, along with their instructions and materials list. Happy Crafting


Have you ever had a craving for chocolate cake but didn’t feel like making a whole cake? Have I got a solution for you! This easy recipe is cheap, FAST, and super delicious! All you need is three things:Angel Food Cake Mix, Chocolate Cake Mix, water. I like to make a big batch and store it so I have something yummy for when the craving strikes!


  • angel food cake mix
  • chocolate cake mix
  • water

How to Make a Mug Cake:

The concept is easy. One box of angel food cake mix. One box any flavor cake mix. (I prefer chocolate) Combine. Use some immediately then store the rest in your pantry.

When ready to eat:

3 tablespoons cake mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in the microwave.


And yes it is that easy! Does it Taste Good? Yes. This cake does not compare to a homemade Perfect Chocolate Cake. Or a Homemade Yellow Cake. Or any from-scratch cake that you make. What it does, quite beautifully actually, is serve a craving. It’s chocolate. It’s hot. It’s quick. It’s a small portion so you don’t have to add ‘major guilt trip’ to your list of daily tasks. I experimented with a LOT of flavors and settled on chocolate cake with mini chocolate chips and mas-sive fun toppings with sprinkles. These are Mini Rainbow Chocolate Chips which are right up there with sliced bread in terms of inven-tions that make my life awesome. The cake mixture recipe is meant to be fun and easy! Play with it. Have fun. Add whatever you have in the pantry! If you want to double the recipe (if you have a large mug as I did) you can. Simply add an additional 10 seconds in the microwave.
