February 15, 2017

Baking a whole cake...ain't nobody got time for that! This recipe is for you if you've got a sweet tooth but don't have time to bake, cool and ice a whole cake.

Red velvet mug cake is absolutely decadent for just a couple people (depending on how many mugs you decide to make - this recipe will make enough for two), and is ready from start to finish in about five minutes! 

Make your cake and eat it too! 


• 3⁄4 cup Bisquick mix 
• 3 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
• 1⁄2 cup sugar 
• 1/3 cup canola oil 
• 1⁄2 cup milk 
• 2 eggs 
• 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla 
• Red food coloring, as needed 
• Cream cheese frosting, if desired 


In medium bowl, beat all ingredients except frosting until well combined. Spray insides of 2 large coffee mugs with cooking spray. Divide batter equally into mugs. One at a time, microwave each mug uncovered on high 2 to 3 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Serve warm or cool with frosting or whipped cream.
