Mug Cake Recipes 

#1 Cherry Chocolate Mug Cake

Are you a fan of Black Forest Cake? Then this mug cake recipe is for you! All you need is the following:

  • Happy Mug Chocolate Cake Mix
  • Water
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Whipped cream


Chop up some cherries and prepare your mug cake mix according to the instructions. Next, fold in the chopped cherries, pop your mug into the microwave, and set it to 1 ½ minutes. Remove the mug from the microwave. It’ll be hot so don’t forget to use an oven mitt. Add a dollop of whipped cream, top it with more whole cherries, and enjoy!


#2 Caramel Apple Mug Cake

If you’re looking for the sweet, gooey, tartness of a caramel apple, this recipe should be your go-to. Here’s what you need:

  • Happy Mug Caramel Cake Mix
  • Water
  • Apple Pie filling (you can buy this at the store or make your own, like this one)
  • Whipped cream


Prepare your mug cake mix. Remove a spoonful of batter and set it aside. Add the apple pie filling to the hole you scooped out, cover with the batter, and repeat, finishing with the batter on top. Pop into the microwave for 1 ½ minutes. Top with whipped cream and you’re done. You’ll never look at your mug the same way again!
