Strawberry Mug Cake

How cute is this strawberry tea pot?

This tea pot kettle inspired the next in my mug cake series: strawberry mug cakes.

Like all the other mug cakes, this one was easy to whip up and cooks in the microwave. Clean-up is minimal since you mix everything directly into the mug.

I love the little pretty red pieces of strawberry mixed within the cake. The cake is fluffy, sweet. I prefer this white cake recipe more than the previous one I used for the blueberry mug cake. This cake is perfect all year long.

I actually won this tea pot in a giveaway done by the California Strawberry Commission, bringing awareness for their new recipe blog, which shares all sorts of different recipes. Now I need to find some strawberry tea to make in my new teapot.

If you like microwave mug cakes, here’s some other ones I’ve made:


Strawberry Mug Cake


5 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
2 strawberries, each cut into 4-5 pieces


1. Combine all ingredients except strawberries into oversized mug. Stir with a small whisk or fork until batter is smooth. Carefully drop strawberry pieces on top.
2. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. If cake is not done, microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Serve while warm.
