It isn’t as low calorie but boy we loved this recipe! Just microwave on high for a minute and you can even add mini chocolate chips inside too with vanilla ice cream on top. NO, don’t count the calories but it should be tried at least once in our mug cake creations.

  • Wondering whether the cook times remain the same with this recipe below combining angel food cake and cake mix? Yep it doesn’t matter what flavor you use with your angel food ingredient. You can use vanilla cake vs. chocolate cake mix into your dry ingredients with your water. One minute is all it takes. 
  • NO baking powder or vegetable oil required, just water!

The toppings are endless but a dollop of whipped cream is always a winner.
