Champagne Mug Cake

Happy 2014! My family tradition is to ring in the new year with champagne, which inspired me to create this champagne mug cake.

I cooked them directly in the champagne glasses, which make them perfect for serving at a party.

The cake fizzles slightly on your tongue as a result of the champagne bubbles.

Because champagne doesn’t have too much flavor, the cake is a little plain. It basically tastes like a sweet white cake with a little fizzle. If you want to spice it up, you can add some chopped strawberries, making it a strawberry champagne mug cake. Either way, it’s quite fun and I’m planning on making these next time I host a party.

Prep Time: 4 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 5 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
This champagne cake is cooked directly in a champagne glass, which make them perfect for serving at a party.


  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp fat free milk
  • 2 tbsp dry champagne
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Note: The cake is a little plain by itself so to add a little more flavor to the cake, try adding some chopped strawberries to the batter or a little champagne whipped cream frosting


  • Combine all ingredients into an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until batter is smooth. If desired, pour batter into a champagne flute. Make sure the batter only fills up half of the flute. All the batter should fit into a standard champagne flute but if yours are a little small, you may need to split the batter.
  • Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. Top of cake should be dry. Let cake cool a few minutes before eating. If cooking in glass champagne flute, hold by the stem, as the glass will be quite hot.

  1. Very awesome presentation! I like how the top kind of looks like it’s bursting forth, like a champagne bottle opening or a firework. Happy New Year, Kirbie!

    • I like the bursting look too! I was worried it would overflow and I’d have a mess in my microwave, but it puffed out just the right amount.

  2. I’m surprised that champagne flutes can withstand the microwave! This is such a gorgeous looking mug cake, it looks just like fizzy drink in the flute. I’ll definitely make this for a certain friend.

    • I was a little worried! Haha. But it’s only 1 minute, which is why i think it held up. And the stem was still cool to the touch so it wasn’t too hot to handle.

  3. I love champagne cake and how you presented it. The first time I had it was when I was living in L.A. and someone brought it to work. It was delicate tasting and the light champagne frosting really help bring the flavor out.

    • I think some champagne frosting would help with this cake. I liked it a lot, but it was a little plain. I’ll have to make some frosting next time which will also probably make a prettier presentation too.
