Serves 1

Prep time 5 min.

Cook time 1 min.


1/3 cup yellow cake mix

1 fruit cup snack (4 oz.) Del Monte® Diced Peaches, Pears or Mangos in Light Syrup, not drained

1 tsp. vegetable oil

Optional Toppings:

  • Fresh raspberries or blueberries
  • Toasted chopped walnuts or sliced almonds
  • Toasted shredded coconut
  • Powdered sugar
  • Whipped cream


  1. In a large microwave-safe mug (1-1/4 cup capacity), combine cake mix, contents of fruit cup snack and oil.

  2. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until cake rises and is puffed on top. Fruit will be hot; let stand at least 2 minutes before eating. Add toppings, if desired.


  • Microwave ovens vary. For low wattage microwaves, increase time to 1 minute 30 seconds.  For microwave wattages above 1100, decrease time to 50 seconds.
  • Canned Del Monte® Peach Chunks, Pear Chunks or Diced Mangos may be used instead of a fruit cup snack.  Use 1/3 cup fruit and 1/4 cup fruit syrup for each mug cake.  Store remaining fruit and syrup in a sealed, separate container up to 3 days.
  • To store remaining cake mix, portion out by 1/3 cupfuls in sandwich-size resealable plastic bags.
