Angel food cake ROCKS. And with this single-serve microwave recipe, you have no excuse not to make some (unless you don't like angel food cake)...

1/4 cup angel food cake mix
3 frozen unsweetened strawberries
1/2 tbsp. low-sugar strawberry preserves
2 tbsp. Cool Whip Free (thawed)
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Spray a wide, large microwave-safe mug (or HG Alternative) with nonstick spray. Add cake mix and 3 tbsp. water, and stir until just mixed. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until just set.

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave strawberries for 45 seconds, or until thawed. Add preserves and thoroughly mash with a fork.

If you like, transfer your cake to a plate. Top with strawberry mixture and Cool Whip, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Enjoy!


HG Alternative: It's important that the mug is both large and wide. If you don't have a mug like this, use a wide microwave-safe bowl! 

Coffee Cake in a Mug

Entire recipe: 166 calories, 3g fat, 387mg sodium, 36g carbs, 2g fiber, 20.5g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

Pssst... While this is a totally sweet and dessert-y item, we're not opposed to having it as a brunchy treat. You know, with your coffee!

1 tbsp. Fiber One Original bran cereal
2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1/4 tsp. plus 1 dash cinnamon
1/2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
3 tbsp. moist-style yellow cake mix
3 tbsp. club soda
1 drop almond extract
1/4 tsp. baking powder

Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag and, using a meat mallet or heavy utensil, crush into crumbs.

Transfer crumbs to a small bowl. Mix in brown sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Add butter, and mash and stir until well mixed and crumbly.

Spray a microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Add cake mix, club soda, almond extract, baking powder, and remaining dash cinnamon. Stir until well mixed.

Sprinkle crumb mixture over the cake mixture. Microwave for 1 minute and 45 seconds, or until set. Enjoy!
