Ingredients

How to Make Cake in Coffee mug Gift

Step-by-Step

  1. Place dry cake mix and dry pudding mix into a large bowl and blend well with a whisk. This will be about 4 to 4 1/2 cups dry mix and will make 8 or 9 coffee cup cake mixes. Place 1/2 cup dry mix into a sandwich bag. Place mix into a corner of the bag and tie it there with a twist tie. Continue making packets until all your dry mix is used.

    Suggested Flavor Combinations:
    Lemon cake mix - lemon pudding
    Yellow cake mix - chocolate pudding
    Devils food cake mix - chocolate pudding
    Pineapple cake mix - coconut pudding
    Butterscotch cake mix - butterscotch pudding

    Select a large coffee mug. Make sure that it contains no metallic paint as it will be used in the microwave. Check it to ensure that it holds 1 1/2 cups of water.
  2. Decorating the cups: (optional)
    Paint on the cup if you like. DecoArt Ultra Gloss Acrylic Enamel is one brand of craft paint that can be made dishwasher safe by baking the painted cup in the oven (instructions are on the bottle of paint).

    Glaze Mix:
    1/3 cup confectioners sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons dry flavoring*

    * powdered lemonade mix, powdered orange breakfast drink mix, cocoa powder, vanilla powder (sold by coffee flavorings)

    NOTES

    Select the flavoring appropriate to the cake you are making.

    For the pineapple coconut cake include flaked coconut in a separate bag with instructions to sprinkle it over the frosted cake. Place the glaze mix ingredients into a sandwich bag and tie into corner of bag. Label this bag Glaze Mix and attach it to the other bag with a twist tie.

    Place one baggie cake mix and one baggie glaze mix in each coffee cup. Now attach the following baking instructions to each coffee cup:

    Bake a cake in a coffee cup. Generously spray inside of coffee cup with cooking spray. Empty contents of large packet into cup. Add 1 egg white, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon water to dry mix. Mix for 15 seconds, carefully mixing in all the dry mix. Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.( you may not get satisfactory results in a low wattage small microwave).

    While cake is cooking
    , place ingredients from Glaze Mix into a very small container and add 1 1/2 teaspoons water. Mix well. When cake is done, pour glaze over cake in cup. Enjoy while warm.
