Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes or less
Cool: 10 minutes


1/4 cup yellow cake mix

2 tbsp. fat-free strawberry yogurt

1 tbsp. (about 1/2 large) egg white or fat-free liquid egg substitute

2 tbsp. freeze-dried blueberries, divided

2 tbsp. chopped freeze-dried strawberries, divided

2 tbsp. light whipped topping (thawed from frozen), divided


In a microwave-safe mug sprayed with nonstick spray, combine cake mix with yogurt and egg. Mix until uniform.

Fold in 1 tbsp. each blueberries and strawberries. Microwave for 1 minute, or until set.

Immediately run a knife along the edges to help separate the cake from the mug. Gently shake mug to release, and transfer cake to a plate. Let cool completely, about 10 minutes.

Slice cake in half horizontally. Top the bottom slice with 1 tbsp. whipped topping, followed by the remaining cake slice, remaining 1 tbsp. whipped topping, remaining 1 tbsp. blueberries, and remaining 1 tbsp. strawberries.
