Cake in a Mug: 7 Absolutely Adorable Recipes

To finish, release pressure on the piping bag, press down slightly and then pull away.


Who says you need a crowd for a cake? It's a snap to make one of these incredibly satisfying, microwaveable mug cakes.

Red Velvet Cake in a Mug


Tara Fisher
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium egg
1 teaspoon red food colouring
2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons caster sugar
3 tablespoons self-raising flour
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon white wine vinegar


To decorate:

1 tablespoon soft butter
1 1/2 tablespoons cream cheese
3 tablespoons icing sugar
1/4 teaspoon red food colouring

Place the butter in a 350ml mug and microwave for 10–20 seconds until melted.

Add the egg, red food colouring, buttermilk and vanilla to the mug and beat with a fork until combined.

Add the sugar, flour, cocoa and salt and beat again until smooth. Stir in the white wine vinegar.

Cook in the microwave for 2 minutes at 600W, 1 minute 45 seconds at 800W or 1 minute 30 seconds at 1000W. Leave to cool.

Meanwhile, make the icing. Beat the butter, cream cheese and icing sugar together until smooth. Add the red food colouring one drop at a time, stirring after each addition until you achieve your desired shade of red, then spoon the icing into a piping bag fitted with a closed star nozzle. The effect you want from your icing is that of a beautiful valentine’s rose so start in the centre and, keeping steady pressure on the piping bag, move in a gradual spiral towards the outer edge, overlapping a little as you go. To finish, release pressure on the piping bag, press down slightly and then pull away.

Vanilla Cones Cake in a Mug


Tara Fisher
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium egg
1 tablespoon semi-skimmed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons caster sugar
4 tablespoons self-raising flour
pinch of salt
4 small flat-bottomed wafer ice cream cones, optional


To decorate:

4 tablespoons softened butter
6 tablespoons icing sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coloured sprinkles
1 tablespoon strawberry sauce
2 chocolate flakes, halved

Place the butter in a mug and microwave for 10–20 seconds until melted.

Add the egg, milk and vanilla to the mug and beat together with a fork. Add the sugar, flour and salt and beat again until smooth.

Divide between the four ice cream cones and place on a small plate. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds at 600W, 1 minute 30 seconds at 800W or 1 minutes 15 seconds at 1000W. Leave to cool.

Meanwhile, make the icing. Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla together until light and fluffy, then spoon into a piping bag fitted with a large open star nozzle.

Pipe the icing over the cooled sponge in a spiral pattern – it’s best to work from the outside edge, keeping a constant pressure on the icing bag as you work in towards the centre. To finish, release the pressure on the bag, then press down lightly and pull straight up.

Decorate with all the sauces and sprinkles you fancy.

If using a 350ml mug, cook in the microwave for 2 minutes 50 seconds at 600W, 2 minutes 30 seconds at 800W or 2 minutes 10 seconds at 1000W. Leave to cool.

To make the icing use half the butter, icing sugar and vanilla.

Honey Cake in a Mug


Tara Fisher
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons runny honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons light muscavado sugar
4 tablespoons self-raising flour
pinch of salt


To decorate:

2 tablespoons softened butter
4 tablespoons icing sugar
pinch of ground cinnamon
30g yellow marzipan
black food dye
4 flaked almonds
cocktail stick
1 teaspoon honey

Place the butter in a 350ml mug and microwave for 10–20 seconds until melted.

Add the egg, honey and vanilla to the mug and beat with a fork until combined. Add the sugar, flour and salt and beat again until smooth.

Cook in the microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds at 600W, 1 minute 30 seconds at 800W or 1 minute 15 seconds at 1000W. Leave to cool.

Meanwhile, make the icing. Beat the butter, icing sugar and cinnamon together until light and fluffy, then spoon into a piping bag fitted with a large round nozzle.

Divide the marzipan in two and, with your fingers, roll each piece into two bumble bee-sized oval shapes. Dipping either a skewer or a paintbrush into the black food dye, paint the marzipan with stripes and eyes to look like a bee, finishing with almond flakes for wings. Place one on a cocktail stick.

Once the cake is completely cooled, pipe the icing in a spiral pattern over the sponge. It’s best to work from the outside edge inward and to keep constant pressure on the icing bag. To finish, release the pressure on the bag, press down lightly and then pull straight up.

Garnish with the bees and drizzle with honey to serve.
