Almond Flour for Mug Cake

HOW TO MAKE A MUG CAKE

This single serving microwave Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake starts with an almond flour cake base mixed with fresh strawberries and heavy cream.

  • First, we’re going to combine almond flour, baking powder, and some sweetener in a 12-ounce mug, or larger. The cake batter rises up while cooking in the microwave, and if the mug isn’t big enough, it will overflow. Tried and TRUE! 
  • Then, we’re going to add in some heavy cream, melted butter, and diced fresh strawberries; mix it all up and set it in the microwave for 90 seconds, and up to 2 minutes. Test for doneness, add a few seconds as necessary, but don’t overcook.

  • Lastly, using your mixer, whip up some heavy cream in a small bowl until stiff peaks form. 
  • Add the whipped cream to the top of your mug cake, place a fresh strawberry over it, and gobble up! 

This is the kind of dessert that you whip up on a Tuesday afternoon, OR the kind of cake you prepare for your last minute Valentine’s Day date. It literally takes 2 minutes to cook and a minute to prepare.

COOK’S NOTES

  • I also need to mention that Mug Cakes can be a tad bit tricky because everyone’s microwave is different. In my microwave oven this cake takes exactly 2 minutes and 25 seconds to make. In yours it might take 90 seconds, or a full 3 minutes.
  • If your cake is dry, it usually means you cooked it for too long. Or you overmixed. That can also happen. Don’t overmix. Mix just until all the ingredients are combined.

  1. I’m sorry I missed this post cause I would have run out and picked up some cute Valentine’s Day coffee mugs for the occasion and whipped it up.

    Note to self: Buy some strawberries. 🙂

    1. PS: Made the cake today and it tasted very good with just the strawberries and some more marinated strawberries on top rather than the ice cream.

      My microwave is very efficient so I think I’ll have to reduce my baking time to 2 min 45 sec or 2 1/2 minutes in future. 🙂

  2. So cute! I don’t trust my microwave with anything sweet, I think an angry hobgoblin lives inside it. 🙁

    Have not watched Top Chef this season, but I can’t wait for TC Just Desserts to begin!
