Who knew that Bisquick mix could be used to make a light and fluffy cake.

I’m always open to suggestions for a new mug cake idea. Last week, I received a tweet from @SDFoodTrucks suggesting I try a Bisquick mug cake. So here it is.

I had to give this some thought. Was I trying to make a pancake mug cake or an actual cake? After some mulling, I aimed for an actual cake using Bisquick mix. I played around, and surprisingly came up with a result that was super fluffy and light.

Unfortunately, the taste was awfully plain. FH complained of an “eggy” taste. I didn’t think so, but I did think it was too plain. So then I added in a handful of blueberries and it was just what the mug cake needed. If you don’t like blueberries you can use some other fruit, but I definitely recommend adding some kind of fruit to the batter.

One of the issues I encountered with the Bisquick mix was that I couldn’t get out all the lumps, which I usually can when making other mug cakes. I tried as hard as I could, and then just put it in the microwave and hoped for the best. To my surprise, I didn’t end up with pockets of Bisquick mix in the cake. The tiny lumps disappeared, much like it does when making pancakes.

  1. I was astounded at what a lovely blueberry mug cake this is! Moist, light, and delicious. I made it exactly according to the instructions and it was the first mug cake I really ever liked. This is now a family favorite. We’ve also made it with other fruits but always following the recipe otherwise. I rather like it without adding fruit but topped with a bit of strawberry jam and a dollop of whipped cream. It’s sort of a Victoria Sponge mug cake lol
    Thank you so much for a really good recipe!

  2. We thought this was great, even though we used canola oil and didn’t have any vanilla, and did half granulated sugar and half brown sugar. Turned out thicker than I thought it would, but was a fast, great treat! I added about double the recommended blueberry amount. Will definitely keep checking out your recipes as this was success!
