Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake

Strawberries are in season! I can’t resist buying them whenever I go grocery shopping, though I’ve been buying more than I can eat. Oops.

I know I’ve made strawberry mug cakes before (regular and lightened), but this one is a little different. I added heavy cream to the batter, giving the cake a cream flavor. I really enjoyed this sweet combination of cream cake with strawberries. You can even add some fresh whipped cream and strawberries on top too.

I plan on going strawberry picking soon. Mr. K says he’s just going to watch me from the car. He doesn’t like the idea of picking his own berries. He keeps saying he doesn’t understand why I want to pay to do manual labor. But I find hunting for those perfect berries so rewarding, as long as I don’t have to do it all the time.

  1. this look so pretty! Very good idea, and strawberries sound so tasty!

    • Thanks! I love the strawberries and cream combo any day of the year so I’m happy to have made a mug cake version

  2. Looks good! I love the red mug too hehe ^^ Not sure if I’ll ever have spare strawberries to bake with, but maybe that just means I need to buy more…

    • Zion market keeps having these crazy sales for the 5lb+ boxes. And I can never resist because it’s so cheap! But I can’t eat that many berries at once especially since strawberries don’t last long. So I end up making fruit rolls or smoothies once they start wilting. Though this single serving mug cake only needs 1 or 2 berries. =)

  3. This is AMAZING!! The best cake in a mug recipe I’ve tried out so far. I’ve made about 4 of them in the past 3 days 😀
