Cake in a Cup!

You'll enjoy making this Cake in a Cup in the microwave.  I think it would be a fun, inexpensive party idea when hosting a  small group of children as well.  The extra cake mix can go home in a ziploc baggie with this recipe for revellers to try at home.

Have the children choose a microwave-safe mug for their cake.  Next, dump a box of angel food cake mix and a box of any other flavour cake mix in a large ziploc bag.  Zip it very well and shake it, shake it, until both are thoroughly blended.  
To make your cake in a cup, put 1/3 cup of your newly-made mix into the mug. Add 3 tablespoons of water and stir well with a fork. Pop it into the microwave for one minute on high power. 

Another idea you might try is Cake in a Bowl.  Double your recipe and pop it into the microwave for a minute and 20 seconds.  You know your cake is done if you can poke it in the center with a fork and the fork comes out without cake on it.  I hope you enjoy this idea as much as we have!


  1. I had this recipe passed on to me over the winter. It's an easy way to make a quick dessert. And an easy treat for the kids to make themselves.

  2. These would be great for kids parties and sleepovers.

  3. I had a recipe for cake in a cup but it called for too much measuring and such. This looks fun. One day this summer when the entire neighborhood is at my house.

    And, now I am caught up on your thoughts. :o)
