MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: Eaten as a mug cake or turned out onto a plate, 3-2-1- Red, White, and Blueberry Microwave Mug Cake is an individual serving of patriotic funfetti cake bursting with sweet cherry and blueberry pie filling. An instant dose of Americana!
3-2-1- Red, White, and Blueberry Microwave Mug Cake
- 1 box Angel Food Cake mix
- 1 box white cake mix
- Non-stick spray if not using disposable cups
- 1 can of blueberry pie filling
- 1 can of cherry pie filling
- Sprinkles: red white, and blue stars and jimmies
Directions (make in your Exclusive patriotic MogoBox Mug):
- In a gallon sized ziplock bag, combine the two boxes of cake mix. Shake the bag to mix thoroughly.
- Lightly coat the inside of a microwaveable mug with non-stick spray or use a disposable microwave-safe paper cup. Without the spray the cake will not transfer out of the mug and the mug is harder to clean. If using a microwave-safe paper cup, no spray is needed.
- (Here comes the 3-2-1 part) Into the prepared mug/ paper cup, stir together 3 tablespoons of cake mix and 2 tablespoons of water. Fold in 1 teaspoon of jimmies sprinkles. Add (without mixing) a heaping teaspoon of blueberry filling and a heaping teaspoon of cherry filling.
- Microwave on high for 1 minute.
- Sprinkle the top of the cake with additional cherry pie filling and star sprinkles, then eat it right out of the mug. If you want to transfer the cake onto a plate, run a knife around the edge between the cake and the mug to loosen, dump out onto a plate, then add the cherry filling and star sprinkles.
- Combine the two cake mixes into a gallon-size ziplock bag labeled with directions. Include a measuring spoon, canned fruit, and sprinkles. If the care package is international, include microwave safe paper cups. If the care package is domestic, add either a can of non-stick spray (for use with a ceramic mug) or microwave safe paper cups ( highly recommended for college students). Don’t forget to include the “recipe”.
