Mango Coconut Mug Cake

Tropical fruits are coming into season which inspired me to make this mango coconut mug cake.

I’ve been eating mangos like crazy. They are so sweet right now, especially the yellow manila mangos.

Since I had leftover coconut milk from my whipped cream experimenting, I used some in the cake batter. I also added some shredded coconut. I love how the little pieces of mango managed to stay studded on top of the batter rather than sinking inside.

Mr. K has gotten a little weary of all my mug cakes and he usually will only eat one bite for taste testing purposes. But he really enjoyed this one and after eating one bite, he proceeded to finish off the whole thing.

  1. Hello
    I may have done something wrong 🙁 Mine came out rubbery and gluey tasting. I know all microwaves are different but any tips? Also I used powdered sugar…maybe I shouldn’t have.

    • A couple of things, if you used powdered sugar you would need to use more of it to match the granulated sugar. In addition, what kind of coconut milk are you using? You need to be using full fat coconut milk otherwise the cake will not have enough fat content which can also make it rubbery.

  2. It looks amazing resuraunt quality’s 

  3. OMG, this is heavenly devine … ??
