3-2-1 Mug Cake | Any Flavor of Cake, Fat Free, in One Minute

December 30, 2019 1 Comment

This recipe is so easy I’m almost ashamed to share it as a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher.

I pride myself on providing challenges for my students but sometimes kids just need a treat. I use this little treat to introduce the microwave unit in Junior Foods. But who am I to judge someone who keeps a mix in their cupboards at home for late-night chocolate cravings? Or who keeps a mix on hand for a quick treat for their mentor groups?

It is so. easy.

You will need:

  • One angel food cake mix (MUST be angel food because of egg content)
  • One cake mix of your choosing (Can be any flavor)

Mix the mixes together and seal in an airtight container. When you’re ready (needing!) to make a quick cake, remember 3-2-1.

  • 3 T cake mix
  • 2 T water
  • Microwave 1 minute (and let stand 1 minute)

Voila! A perfectly portioned fat-free cake in one minute.
