3-2-1 Chocolate Cake

This three ingredient Chocolate Mug Cake recipe makes a delicious quick-mix that’s perfect for gifting or creating your own personal chocolate cake!

Say goodbye to the late night, “I-want-a-dessert-but-don’t-want-to-make-a-mess” dilemma. This is a mug cake like you’ve never seen before! I have tried several types of the mug cakes and they all taste eggy, rubbery, and just not good. Not to mention they all take tons of flour, and pulling out a lot of ingredients.

Chocolate Mug Cake Mix

Simply mix together a box of Angel Food Cake mix and a box of Chocolate Cake mix in a large bowl with a whisk. Cover with a lid, or put in an air tight container.

Easy Gift Idea

Or- put in cute little mason jars for easy gifts to pass along. – attach a simple tag with these directions…

  • Place 3 tablespoons of mix in a mug
  • Add 2 tablespoons of water
  • Mix together and microwave for 1 minute

And there you have it! 3-2-1 Chocolate Cake!

Of course, since it’s so easy and practically no clean-up, get out a fancy dish and enjoy! I always keep a can of Redi-whip on hand… it’s very necessary.

This cake is by far, the best Mug Cake I have ever eaten, it’s moist, light and fluffy like an angel food cake, and done in 1 minute.

    How fun! And dittos on the mug cake–I've tried several recipes, and blecch. Will have to try this one. Congrats on your blogoversary. 🙂 For Mother's Day, I literally have no plans as of yet! I'm hoping someone will cook me breakfast in bed–last year the hubs/kids tried and brought me pancakes with 4 times the amount of required salt–at least they tried.
