Margarita Mug Cake
These margarita flavored mug cakes can be cooked directly in margarita glasses, making them perfect for a party!
After making my champagne mug cakes, I kept looking at my margarita glass set and decided to try experimenting with making a margarita mug cake.
It took quite a few attempts, but I finally got a version with the right balance of ingredients. Margarita consists of three main ingredients: lime, tequila and triple sec. I didn’t have any triple sec on hand so I used a little liquid margarita mix which had triple sec in it.
The cake does taste like margarita, but the flavor is a little subtle since the drink itself is fairly plain. I’d recommending adding a dollop of frosting, whipping together some heavy cream and dry margarita powder mix, to really bring out the flavors in the cake.
- 4 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp tequila
- 2 tbsp fat free milk
- 1 tbsp liquid margarita mix
- 1/2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1/4 tsp lime zest
- recommended: make a little frosting by whipping heavy cream with a little concentrated powder margarita mix to enhance the flavors of the cake

Combine all ingredients into an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until batter is smooth.
Cook in the microwave for about 1 minute. Surface of cake should be dry and knife inserted should come out clean. Let cake cool a few minutes before eating. Cake is best consumed within a few hours after making.
