This mug coffee cake recipe makes a delicious cake that is moist, fluffy and has a slight hint cinnamon. You can eat it by itself or with a nice hot cup of coffee.

This recipe serves one if you need serve more than that just simply double it but you will probably need to use more mugs as well. You also will probably find the topping can do 2 servings so keep this in mind when you’re changing the recipe to feed more.


I often find if you’re feeling a little peckish then adding some cream or ice cream is the perfect addition to this lovely mug cake.

You may already know that a coffee cake is typically a cake that you have with a coffee or tea. You will find that these cakes are often flavored with spices and sometimes have crumb on top. This particular recipe has both the crumb and uses some cinnamon for extra flavor.

Cooking Tips:

  • If you end up with any of the topping mix leftover make sure you place this in the fridge. It should keep for a few days before you should probably discard.
  • If you find your cake is a little too moist when you pull it out of the microwave then simply place back in and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • As with any recipe that you cook in a mug make sure the mug is large enough for the amount of mixture you’re putting in it. If it is too small, then it is likely to make a mess of your microwave.
