Microwave 'Cup' Cakes...

This is not a recipe for your regular cupcakes.  This is a recipe for cakes that are made in a CUP and then cooked in a microwave!  There are a couple of things that are especially fun about this recipe.  First, once the dry cake mix is made up, you can make yourself (or friends and family) a mini 'cup' cake pretty much any time you decide you want one.  Just put some of the mix in a cup and add water and microwave.  And, secondly, it only involves two ingredients plus water.  So, have fun with this recipe for an anytime tasty and easy treat.


  • 1 package Angel Food cake mix
  • 1 package of any other flavor cake mix (Devil's Food, Red Velvet, Fudge, Spice, Strawberry, etc.)
  • 2 Tbsp water

  1.  Mix the 2 cake mixes together in a gallon zip-top bag.
  2. In a microwave safe cup, mix 3 Tbsp cake mix with 2 Tbsp water and microwave for 1 minute.  Let cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Optional:  For added flavor, put a few mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, sprinkles, blueberries, or other treats in the cake and water mixture before microwaving.  You can also top the finished cake with fruit, whipped cream, ice cream, or other fun toppings.

This is everything you need to make a cake in a cup.  For my cake, this time I picked Devil's Food to make chocolate cake, but you can pick any cake flavor you like.  Just be sure one of the cake mixes is Angel Food cake.

I start by opening the zip-top bag and pouring the Angel Food cake in.

Then add the second cake mix to the bag.  This time I am using Devil's Food cake mix for making a chocolate cake.

When both cake mixes are in the bag, zip it closed tight and then shake it all around until it is all mixed together.

When the cake mixes are completely mixed together, measure 3 tablespoons of the mix into a microwave safe cup.

Then add 2 tablespoons of water to the cake mix in the cup and stir the water and cake mix.  After it is completely mixed you can cook it as it is or add marshmallows, chocolate chips, fruit or other fillings and mix it in.  I've added fresh blueberries for a chocolate- blueberry cake.  It was delicious!

Put the cup with the cake mixture in the microwave for one minute.

This is the finished cake after it has microwaved for one minute.  Let it cool for 15 minutes before eating.  For extra flavor, you can top your cake with icing, whipped cream, fruit or other toppings.

This, of course, is the best part - eating the cake!  For how simple this is to make, you won't believe how delicious it tastes.  This is an especially fun thing to make with friends and as fun party snacks.
