This recipe is something I came up with as a quick fix to my sweet tooth one lazy weekend afternoon. So yummy and quick!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take a coffee mug and add the flour, splenda, brown sugar and baking powder. Mix the ingredients together.
  2. Add the milk and stir. Continue adding more milk and stirring until it looks like cake batter.
  3. Add a handful of blueberries and stir them inches.
  4. Place mug in the microwave.
  5. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, depending on your microwave's wattage. I sometimes microwave for 1.5 minutes and cake comes out with a nice sauce.
  6. Enjoy!

I halved the baking soda, cut the sugar down a little bit, and replaced the blueberries with strawberries. Because I didn't have milk in the house, I used three tablespoons half and half and two of water. Then, I cooked it for 1 minute, 45 seconds. It almost--but didn't-- spilled over my largest mug, and came out just a bit undercooked-- a little like a bread pudding.

And it was delicious! Without a doubt best microwave cake I've tried yet.

I made these using only peaches and in large ramekins. They did boil over a bit, but not a big deal. They were really delicious and I will definitely be making these again. Oh, I also added a sprinkling of nutmeg over the top of the peaches (last step). Thanks for posting!

Three stars because it was good but I made a lot of changes. Changes: half ww and half white flour, 3 Tbsp Splenda, and 1/4 tsp baking powder. Seemed plenty sweet with less of the sweetener, so I won't use more than that. I used a 16 oz measuring cup as my mug and am glad I did because it bubbled up almost to that 2 cup mark! I cooked it 2 1/2 minutes and it was still a little gooey at the bottom, but that may be just my microwave. All of that being said, great use for the blueberries sitting in my fridge and a quick healthy snack for me- thanks!
