  • Ok….so I’m a mom and most activities, thoughts, and purchases usually focus on my 3 girls.
  • BUT I deserve some ME time!! Let’s just say we all do. 😉

There are a lot of things I enjoy doing but when I have just a few minutes to myself I love making myself something sweet and enjoying a few of my favorite magazines. I can see you nodding your head with me now….right??!!

How can you make Angel Food Cake in a Mug in just 1 minute?? I’ve got you covered!

I think as moms we all need to take a bit of time out for ourselves. I know for me it gives me time to clear my head, relax, and become a bit more creative.

At times like this I get the best ideas of places I’d like to go on our next family vacation, recipes I’d like to try (like this one), and just clear my head for the next day to start. Here’s how you make this easy mug dessert so you can enjoy it on your free time too.

How to make Angel Food Cake in a Mug

  1. Add 3 tbsp. angel food cake mix into a large coffee mug
  2. Then add 2 tablespoons of water
  3. Stir well until combined, will froth up a bit
  4. After adding water 1 minute in the microwave on high
    1. Can top with whipped cream, hot fudge, ice cream
  5. Enjoy your single serving

It’s the perfect fat free dessert for one and you don’t have to feel guilty because it’s only a few bites!

  • The time I have to actually sit down and read is so sporadic that I would rather have a magazine I can flip through, read a few articles, and save the rest until I have time to dig in again. These are perfect for that!

If you’ve never flipped thru this magazine it has really cute ideas of what shoes go with what, ways to transition a casual outfit to a more formal one easily, & easy ways to take care of yourself.

I personally like the tips on must haves when you’re on a budget, 161 in this issue… you don’t feel guilty “spoiling” yourself. 😉

Yes I do share. Since I have 3 girls they love flipping thru the pages too (especially my 16 year old). It goes thru 4 hands before landing on our coffee table for others to enjoy.

I’ve taught them the mug angel food cake trick too so they can make a treat themselves occasionally. With just water and cake mix in a microwave safe mug, almost any age can do this one. It’s a win win for everyone. 😉

  • If you love chocolate, try our chocolate mug cake using this same idea but with chocolate cake mixes, or dark chocolate style.
  • The possibilities are endless once you understand the ratios of water to mix.

But wait!!! We have other angel food cake mix recipes to try too! That is right. You can make pineapple cake, and we’ve even made a chocolate angel food cake before.

Our peach angel food cake is very popular with everyone.

You can make other flavors too like strawberry mug cake. This uses 2 cake mixes and water. To make things easier you can premix them both and add a few tablespoons of mix into ziploc bags. Then just dump in, add water and go!

I’ve made this and other BC cake mixes using this ratio. I even tried Jiffy mix blueberry muffins at the same ratio. These mug cakes are my diet treat.

Loved this recipe. I mixed some lemon zest and blueberries to my Duncan Hines mix and WOW!! Such a satisfying treat for when I want to satisfy a craving but not go overboard. Thank you for the simple hack :)

Actually, it's not that good. Didn't like it at all... Very disappointed :(

Just curious - I would like to bake this in a large toaster oven or regular oven using a ramekin. Would that work? Any idea of timing or temp? I love angel food cake but have no microwave. A single serving size is so perfect!

I haven't any idea, haven't done that.

just made this . I used ornage soda pop in place of the water really good. But i do think you should used a really big coffee mug as it really does rise really tall. Will be making this alot really good with strawberries and fat free cool whip.
