Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake

strawberries and cream mug cake
Strawberries are in season! I can’t resist buying them whenever I go grocery shopping, though I’ve been buying more than I can eat. Oops.

I know I’ve made strawberry mug cakes before (regular and lightened), but this one is a little different. I added heavy cream to the batter, giving the cake a cream flavor. I really enjoyed this sweet combination of cream cake with strawberries. You can even add some fresh whipped cream and strawberries on top too.

I plan on going strawberry picking soon. Mr. K says he’s just going to watch me from the car. He doesn’t like the idea of picking his own berries. He keeps saying he doesn’t understand why I want to pay to do manual labor. But I find hunting for those perfect berries so rewarding, as long as I don’t have to do it all the time.

Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake


4 tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp fat free milk
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 large strawberry, chopped into small pieces



Mix everything except strawberry into a microwave safe mug using a small whisk until batter is smooth. Stir in strawberry chunks. Cook for about 1 minute on microwave. Let cake cool in mug before eating. Top with whipped cream and strawberries if desired.

  1. this look so pretty! Very good idea, and strawberries sound so tasty!

    • Thanks! I love the strawberries and cream combo any day of the year so I’m happy to have made a mug cake version

  2. Looks good! I love the red mug too hehe ^^ Not sure if I’ll ever have spare strawberries to bake with, but maybe that just means I need to buy more…

    • Zion market keeps having these crazy sales for the 5lb+ boxes. And I can never resist because it’s so cheap! But I can’t eat that many berries at once especially since strawberries don’t last long. So I end up making fruit rolls or smoothies once they start wilting. Though this single serving mug cake only needs 1 or 2 berries. =)

  3. This is AMAZING!! The best cake in a mug recipe I’ve tried out so far. I’ve made about 4 of them in the past 3 days 😀
