Mind Blowing Mug Cake

Sunday, February 12, 2012 § 1

I have seen and tried lots of mug cake recipes over the years with varying degrees of success and failure... you probably know what I'm talking about. They generally include cake like ingredients and are microwaved for a minute or so in your favorite coffee mug. My last attempt a month or so ago was an utter failure. No, thats a half lie... it was a little number including nutella and it tasted GREAT, but it exploded all over my microwave and was a pain to clean out. It was like cement in there (and on the outside of the mug), but gooey deliciousness inside the mug. 

But the other night....
 My. Mind. Was. Blown.

This is SO simple, SO good, and Makes SO much mix.
(I can hear my dad mocking me as he reads this. I tend to overuse "so," and he's really good at making fun of me...)

Mind Blowing Mug Cake

1 box angle food cake mix
1 box any other cake mix (I recommend something chocolaty)

Mix the two together in a large ziplock or container. 

In a mug, mix 3 tbsp. mix and 2 tbsp. water. Microwave for one minute. 
Top with a big dallop of cool whip right from the tub.

Now, go lay on the couch, turn on biggest loser (that's what I did anyway) and enjoy this lazy, lazy desert. And think about how many more cakes you can make -or mason jars full you could give as gifts- with that huge bag of mix! 

(also, these are ~200 calories without the cool whip, so don't feel guilty!)

What's this?
