Baking technique:

You need to check gradually whether the cake is made or not. The top will get brown quickly, then the inside. So, check with the help of a toothpick to know whether it is done. You can use foil paper to prevent further browning of the top and get the perfect look of the cake. Sometimes, when I think the top is quite brown, I add some chocolate fudge frosting to the cake and serve it with some strawberries on top.

  • One box of cake mix I am using yellow one, but you can use any of your favorite ones
  • Angel food cake mix one box
  • One mug of coffee
  • Water 3 tbsp


  • We will start with the two boxes of cake mix. Add these to a bowl and mix them well.
  • Next, add three tbsp of this dry mixture to a big coffee mug. Add the water and microwave it for one minute. You can now top it with any of your favorite nuts, frostings, whipped cream, and ice cream.
  • Try it hot and filled with the deliciousness of your topping. If you like, add a piece of white chocolate to the center of the mixture in your mug. It will be like a white lava cake when you prepare it in the oven.


The recipe quantity I have mentioned above is for storing purposes. You can keep the dry mixture in a jar or bottle and use it whenever you crave cake. Add 3 tbsp of dry mix and water, and the cake is ready to serve. You can add a few drops of melted butter to give it a buttery aroma and taste. Otherwise, you can enjoy it as it is with strawberries and pecans.

    I followed the recipe directions but my cake was a failure. The texture was like a light cookie dough. One minute in the microwave. Foil paper can be used in the microwave? I did omit the mug of coffee. I chose to assume I did something wrong so I gave it 4 stars. Can you shed any light on what might have happened?
