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!
