Blueberry mug cake

So far all the mug cakes recipes I’ve come across have all been chocolate. While I love chocolate cakes, sometimes I’m in the mood for something lighter and more refreshing like a white cake with fresh fruit.

So I set about trying to create a simple white cake. And since blueberries were on sale, I added some fresh blueberries to the batter. My first attempt was a failure. But on my second attempt, I create a pretty fluffy mug cake filled with fresh berries. Delicious.

The cake did lose some of its softness after it cooled so it’s best eaten warm. I am pretty pleased with this recipe though I might experiment a little bit more to see if I can create an even softer and fluffier cake. This cake was so easy to make. Just as easy as all the other mug cake recipes and only needed 1 1/2 minutes to cook.

  1. Thank you! This cake was amazing! I also put some syrup on top by crushing 1/8 cup blueberries, 2 tbsp of Splenda and 1 tbsp of lemon juice with some zest for extra flavor. It turned out very moist and delicious!

  2. If you want to make it softer put some butter and milk and enjoy the deliciousness (;

  3. After having foot surgery and being alone for two weeks while my hubbie was out of town on business, I had to satisfy my cake cravings by trying the blueberry mug cake. Wow, it was wonderful. I used olive oil because that was all I had in the pantry. I also love the flavour of blueberries and lemons so I grated a bit of lemon rind into the batter. I used egg whites and added a few extra berries and well….LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Two minutes later and a dollop of whippped cream on top, I had a mug cake that was light, fluffy and tasted awesome! Thanks for sharing this recipe Kerbie. I can’t wait to try others!

  4. Made this with banana yogurt instead of milk (because I was out) and topped with some of the chocolate peanut butter frosting my roommates had made (because I can’t stay away from chocolate). It was delicious and super moist, which is hard to find in a mug cake! Will definitely use this recipe again 🙂

  5. Thank you for making my dream come true! Not much effort and single serving cake. Bliss.

  6. what do you mean by oil? what kind of oil?

  7. I was a bit nervous when it came out of the micro (after 3min) because it looked almost custard like on the top but, I scraped that part off and OMG!!!! Fantastic!!! I was looking for a non chocolate sweet fix and I have so found it!

  8. I just made this recipe. It turned out pretty well. I get what ppl are saying about there kind of being an egg taste to it but that just furthers the taste of bread and butter pudding to me! Yummo. thanks for this awesome recipe.
