How to Top This Chocolate Angel Food Mug Cake Recipe

One of the brilliant things about this mug cake recipe is that it’s really customizable.

This light and fluffy cake can be eaten alone, or you can add some of your favorite toppings, such as whipped cream and fresh fruit.

To complement the airy sweetness of a Chocolate Angel Food Mug Cake, consider pairing it with a scoop of classic vanilla ice cream.

The creaminess of the ice cream creates a delightful contrast to the light, fluffy texture of the cake.

Drizzling chocolate syrup adds an extra layer of decadent flavor, while a generous dollop of whipped cream introduces a velvety smooth finish.

For a final touch of finesse, a light dusting of powdered sugar can be sprinkled on top, enhancing the cake’s visual appeal and adding a subtle hint of additional sweetness.

Can you substitute another cake mix flavor besides chocolate? Strawberry mug cake might be good.

Hi Jennifer! How many watts is the microwave you used for this recipe, please?

It would be most beneficial if you supplied this information, for all microwave recipes, so that those of us using ones with different wattages could adjust our bake/cook times accordingly. Thanks so much!

Hi Terry, this is a great suggestion. Thank you. We've tested this with a 1100 watt microwave and an 800 watt microwave, and the 1 minute cook time works with both!
