Single Serving Cookie Butter Cake

This single serving cookie butter cake is the perfect sweet treat for one. With just five ingredients, you’ll get a fresh baked warm cake, with a slightly gooey center.

I’m trying my best not to go too crazy this holiday season. It’s never easy. Holiday parties, cookie exchanges, recipe testing, etc. A close friend of mine is getting married in the beginning of January and I’m excited to be one of her bridesmaids. I’m trying to use this as motivation to not overeat this month.

One good way to not overeat is portion control. Like making single serving cakes. This is a version of my cookie butter mug cake. If you don’t have the patience to wait for this cake to make, go ahead and check out that recipe. It’s similar, though the texture isn’t quite the same. And I’m currently obsessed with gooey cake centers.

Single Serving Cookie Butter Mug Cake


  • 3 tbsp cookie butter spread
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp low fat milk
  • 2 tsp granulated white sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and mix vigourously with a small whisk until batter is completely smooth.

2. Grease an an oven safe mug, bowl, or ramekin (big enough so that the batter will fill 2/3 when poured in; I used a wide mug.)  Pour batter into bowl. Bake for about 16-18 minutes, until cake looks completely cooked and center is mostly set. Let cake cool a few minutes before eating. I use a spatula to loosen the edges and then placed mine into a 4 oz ramekin for serving.
