Yes…I’m back again with a new mug dessert recipe! This time it’s a perfectly pink strawberry cake in a mug recipe with just 3 ingredients! This is so easy to do. With this trick you can make chocolate cake in a mug too. We’ve been wild about mug recipes this year. Now we’re all about creating new ones like this!

Doesn’t this look yummy??!!

We’ve experimented a lot with easy mug cake recipe ideas since our first dessert in a mug last month. Since my youngest loves strawberry we decided to try that flavor this time.

We created angel food in a mug (which we will post soon) and this cake mix along with the strawberry cake mix creates a lighter texture than just making strawberry cake for one in a mug alone.

You pop it in the microwave after mixing it with a bit of water for 1 minute and it’s done to perfection!

Like I said, really any type of cake mix will work when mixing it with angel food cake mix for this dessert in a mug. Mix both boxes together in a bowl and mix really well, then store the rest for later. You will need:

Strawberry Cake in a Mug

  1. Large coffee mug (or else it will boil over in the microwave)
  2. 1 box angel food cake mix
  3. 1 box cake mix of your choice (we used strawberry here)
  4. water
  5. Plastic container to store rest of mix

All you do is microwave on high for 1 minute!

Now just get a large plastic container out – this will hold everything

  • Empty the contents of both the box of angel food cake and the other type of regular cake mix you want into it and mix until they’re combined well.
  • Then you have your cake in a mug mix ready to use whenever.

What is the texture of this cake? Would it make a good cake smash cake for 1 year old?
