What Is A Mug Cake?
Mug cakes are a single serving dessert made in a mug or a bowl. When you don’t want to make a full cake or don’t have the time, you can make a quicker version in a single serving mug or bowl. You simply use the cake mix of your choice, in this recipe I used a strawberry cake mix. Then, add a few tablespoons of water. That’s it! Mix it well and microwave for 2-3 minutes.
Mug cakes continue to cook even after they are done, so you don’t want to over cook it or it will be dry.
Add-ins are optional. You can add-in chocolate chips or other treats like pie filling, fruit, spices, nuts, candy, or cookies.

- 6 tablespoons of strawberry cake mix. (Duncan Hines, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, or any off brand will do)
- 2-3 tablespoons of water. You want your batter to be the same consistency of cake batter

Microwave your mug cake for 2-3 minutes depending on your microwave. Start out by only microwaving for 2 minutes. If it’s still not done, microwave in 15 or 30 second intervals.

Note: To make this recipe in the large 20oz. mug in the picture, I doubled the recipe.
