Our family loves desserts, and what could be better than a dessert that that can be made in a mug a in a minute? This recipe makes a delicious, gooey white cake with very basic ingredients. And when you add some strawberries and a little whipped cream…it turns into a wonderful strawberry shortcake. This is a wonderful little cake that kids can have fun making themselves. They can help measure ingredients and stir the mix with a spoon until smooth. Kids love to stir!  So let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

White Cake In A Mug 

{Serves 1}



4 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon white flour

2 tablespoons white sugar

dash of vanilla

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

3 tablespoons milk


1. To a mug, add flour, sugar, vanilla, oil and milk. Stir until smooth as shown.

2. Cook cake in mug in microwave for 1 minute. {My microwave is 800 watts. If your microwave has higher wattage, cook for 50 seconds or adjust accordingly.}

After 1 minute in the microwave, there will be a nice tender and gooey cake. Let cool.

Once cake is cool, add some sliced strawberries and whipped cream. It will taste delicious! Such an easy, yummy strawberry shortcake mug cake!

This was great! I have a chocolate mug cake recipe but I hadn't found a good white cake one. We found it a bit gooey for our tastes, but on the second try I used self-raising flour instead of AP, and it was a lot fluffier. Thanks!
