What to Love About this Strawberry Mug Cake

  • It contains fresh strawberries. Enough said. They are THE best.
  • The ingredients are simple, pantry ingredients you most likely have on hand. Simply add fresh berries.
  • After a quick chop of two strawberries and a stir of ingredients, this Strawberry Mug Cake will microwave for about 90 seconds.
  • The cake is super soft and moist… and delicious!

Strawberry Mug Cake Simple Ingredients

You will need 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of butter, melted plus 3 tablespoons of your choice of milk.

Gather all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder and a dash of salt. I also include a splash of vanilla, from 1/2 teaspoon or a whole teaspoon, depending on the mood!

Fresh Ingredients:
For each strawberry mug cake, chop two fresh strawberries finely. Plus more to garnish the cake if desired.

2 Minute Strawberry Mug Cake

Yield: 1 serving
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 31 seconds
Total Time: 1 minute 31 seconds

This 2 Minute Strawberry Mug Cake is a sweet microwave treat that brings to mind, Strawberries and Cream. And the reminder that the strawberry season isn't too far off.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 2 strawberries, diced small
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a 12-ounce (375 ml) mug or larger, melt the butter in the microwave for a few seconds. Once melted swirl it to coat the sides of the mug. Leave the remaining butter and add the flour, sugar, baking powder, diced strawberries, and milk. Mix until just combined.
  2. Microwave on high for 90 seconds to 2 minutes. This will depend on the size of your mug and your microwave. Be careful not to over-microwave. The top will be just set.
  3. Let cool one minute before eating. Top with cream and more diced strawberries if desired. A dusting of confectioners' sugar works beautifully too.

  1. Awesome recipee. Thanks for sharing. I added only 1/4 tspVanilla and one diced strawberry. Came out perfect! Yummy.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! This is one of my favorite summer mug cakes, I love the fresh strawberries too!

  2. Made this tonight with leftover strawberries and it was so good! I went the full 2 minutes which was perfect.

  3. This is another amazing mug cake recipe. I had high expectations since I loved your gingerbread mug cake but this surpassed even those expectations. My husband and daughter gave it rave reviews too. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    1. Thank you, Carolyn! I absolutely love this recipe. Maybe because every time I make it, I’m wishing for strawberry season, warmer weather and longer days. I’m so happy the family loved it too! Thank you for trying it.

    2. This unfortunately didn’t work for me 🙁
      Cooked for 2 minutes, but maybe that wasn’t long enough?

  4. This mug cake’s texture was great! The only thing bad about it is that it is WAY TOO SWEET. I think it would taste much better if you did only 2 1/2 tbl of sugar or even just 2.

    1. You know what… I think you’re right. I made it again today with, thankfully, very sweet strawberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar. I like it a lot. Most mug cakes do need the extra sugar but the strawberries bring added sweetness. It’s a wonderful thing when you get to retest strawberry cakes in the middle of the day. Thank you!! Have a great day.
