What you need to have to make mug cakes:
I love coffee cakes, but I don’t need a full-size cake sitting around the house begging for me to eat the whole thing. Being able to make a single serving is a huge win for me (and my waistline)! I know it’s not the prettiest recipe I’ve posted here, but I promise it’s delicious! Remember it is a coffee cake in a mug, baked in the microwave! ~ Christina
I first came across a Biscoff spread in France, where they call it Speculoos. It’s ridiculously addictive and its flavor is very versatile and works well in a wide range of desserts. ~ Rhian
You see, making this recipe with only the 3 base ingredients is perfectly fine. It is still super tasty (pick a chocolate protein powder brand that tastes good though!). BUT, pimping this recipe a little bit by adding 1 or 2 simple ingredients will bring it from wow… to AH-Mah-Zing! ~ Gabriel
My 3 Minute Lemon Poke Cake low carb with a paleo version is a make-over of my Mom’s most loved Lemon Poke Cake recipe. Only this version is made grain free, low carb, or paleo, mini-sized, and super fast. ~ Stacey
This low carb molten chocolate cake only takes about 5 minutes to make and tastes fantastic. It’s really chocolatey and the center is ooey and gooey. Best of all, you can make it in the microwave and it’s only 4.9g net carbs. ~ Denise
This Chocolate Banana Bread Mug Cake is healthy, high-protein only takes a few minutes to make, and tastes amazing! Most “healthy” cakes really aren’t worth eating in my opinion, but this one I could happily eat every day. ~ Christel
I don’t want to make a whole cake so I have used this chocolate peanut butter mug cake recipe and it is so quick and delicious! I add peanut butter in mine, but you can leave that out or switch it with some hazelnut spread as well! ~ Kelsey
This easy brownie in a mug cake is a low carb treat that you can easily whip up any time a snack craving hits you. It’s so easy that it’s almost as simple as ripping open an unhealthy Little Debbie snack cake which is what my husband does to satisfy his snack cravings. ~ Lisa
In the spirit of all things single-serve, mug cake, and Funfetti, this all natural, gluten-free, vegan, allergy-free Funfetti mug cake is just the breakfast, snack, dessert, any time of day birthday or holiday treat for one and made in just about 90 seconds! ~ Rebecca
This healthy cinnamon raisin mug cake is essentially an individual serving of baked oatmeal. Baked oatmeal is basically the oatmeal baked into a cake-like form. If you like to eat cake for breakfast, you’ll love baked oatmeal! ~ Melanie
The great thing is this keto chocolate mug cake actually healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast. The entire recipe has only 4 grams net carbs, 1 gram of sugar, a good helping of protein, and even a quarter of your daily iron needs. It’s gluten-free and grain-free, too. With this kind of nutrition info, you can feel good making a meal out of it. ~ Maya
This mug cake is sweetened with stevia, my favorite sweetener, and is extremely easy to make! Traditionally mug cakes are microwaved for 90 seconds, but it wasn’t enough for this one! 120 seconds is the way to go for this recipe! ~ Mira
This delicious chocolate dessert comes together so quickly, you don’t even need a mixer to make it. After you whisk the ingredients together and fill your buttered ramekins with the batter you’ll bake them in a water bath. ~ Bunny
This is the kind of cake you can make in a serious pinch. It’s likely you already have all the ingredients on hand. Especially if you’re like me and hoard canned pumpkin throughout the year. ~ Sues
Pineapple Upside Down Mug Cake is a trendy vintage favorite. This 3-2-1 version of Pineapple Upside Down Cake creates individual servings of moist yellow cake topped with pineapple rings, maraschino cherries, and melted brown sugar, just like the baked cake, but with 3-2-1 Pineapple Upside Down Mug Cake, dessert is ready in just one microwave minute. ~ Wendy
I’m a sucker for sweet and salty granola bars, trail mixes, desserts and pretty much anything else that brings this delicious combination together. Which is the reason behind today’s heavenly dessert that cures any sweet and salty craving? ~ Ashley
Each bite is bursting with lime flavor! This mug cake has a lime icing, but you could easily use a regular frosting and make this a cupcake in a mug! ~ Sandi
This individual apple cinnamon gluten-free mug cake is perfection. It only takes a couple minutes to whip up, a few in the microwave, and bam- the perfect little gluten-free coffee cake. ~ Amanda
