"Easy fast cake that can be made in the microwave in approximately 12 minutes. My favorite combinations are: chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling or yellow cake mix with apple pie filling ( I add a bit of cinnamon for flavor to this one.)"

  1. Mix the box of cake mix, eggs, pie filling and applesauce till moist. Use a microwave safe bundt pan or substitute a microwave safe bowl that has a microwave safe cup or cone placed in the middle of it (to mimic a bundt pan). Pour mixture into the bowl around the cup.
  2. Bake on high for 6 minutes 30 seconds, turn and bake for another 6 minutes 30 seconds on high. Remove from oven and cover bowl with a dish and let stand for 5 minutes (this finishes the cooking process).

So far I have tried the following combinations: chocolate cake mix with cherry pie filling, white cake mix with strawberry pie filling, and yellow cake mix with apple pie filling and cinnamon. All three times it has turned out wonderfully. If you are looking for a unique way to serve it, try this: CAKE IN A COFFEE MUG~ Mix your favorite microwave cake combo. Spray a coffee mug with cooking spray. For mugs that hold a 1 cup fluid capacity add 1/2 cup batter. Microwave for 1 min 40 seconds. Let sit aprox 5 minutes in or out of microwave. Great in the mug, but easy to pop out as well. (makes 10 & 1/2 mugs worth) For 1 1/2 cup or larger capacity mugs use 3/4 cup batter and microwave for 2 min and let sit for 5. (Makes 7 mugs worth). Note, the first time I tried the regular recipe, I used a silacone pan but not a bundt pan. It turned out ok, but was a little gooey in the center. I didn't have that problem when I used the bundt pan the next two times. It's not a problem with the mugs as they are so small.


This is a great recipe, Another great substitue is spice cake, with a can of pumkin, I let them cool and dust top with powdered sugar!


This is WONDERFUL!! I make the chocolate cake with cherry pie filling, then drizzled chocolate syrup over it while it was still warm and served with vanilla ice cream. Sinful! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! :)
