Cake in a Mug Recipe for Kids!

Who can resist a little individual cake in a mug? Because this was my birthday week, I thought it would be fun to share this super simple recipe! I am trying very hard to eat less sugar, but sometimes a craving strikes for a tiny bit of sweet. One of my daughter’s friends shared this recipe with us when they were little. What a perfect treat for after school that the kiddos can do themselves, and school is just around the corner!

Start with two boxes of cake mix. One must be angel food, but the other can be anything!! What is your favorite?

I mixed mine together in a cute jar to keep in the pantry. Any plastic container or large jar with a lid would work great, too. I say it all the time, but this just made my eyes happy. 🙂

Simply mix 3 tablespoons of your cake mix combination with 2 tablespoons of water in a microwave-safe mug that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave for approximately 40 seconds. That was perfect in my microwave, but you may need to adjust that time depending on the power of yours. That’s it! The texture is slightly different than your typical baked cake, but the flavor is so wonderful, and it makes your entire home smell divine!!

You can certainly top this with flavored syrup, ice cream or whipped topping! Fresh fruit would be another healthier option. Here’s the recipe!

I also created this little tag that you can print to attach to your container of mix. It would perfect to print on fun cardstock and laminate so that the directions are handy!

I know this is a shorter post than usual. We had a crazy week with state baseball, and like I mentioned before, MY BIRTHDAY!!! I LOVE birthdays! I am grateful for each and every one.

Let me know if you try this or if you have other favorite treats for after school. Don’t forget to subscribe to my email list to receive posts as I write them. I would love to be friends. 🙂

Have a wonderful day! God bless!
