Flawlessly delicious every time! I’ve enjoyed this blueberry mug cake and the decadent chocolate mug cakes with family and they are always impressed by the taste and texture. I have to also say much kudos and thanks to you for an amazingly beautiful, searchable and valuable website. I appreciate that I’m not being redirected to other recipes/sites every 10 seconds like some blogs. Thank you Sadia, Robin and PUL team, well done!
Simple and yummy! Almost added a lemon zest which would compliment this deliciously! Thank you!
FYI I did this with wheat flour .
Made all of the PUL mug cakes various times- they are UNFAILABLE*!
Even replacing the wheat flour for rice or corn flour or mixing up the taste-giving-ingredient (chocolate, berries, banana) for whatever else is at hand - it still works perfectly and tastes glorious.
*(correct word infallible)
I just wanted to let you know, that you not just touch the lifes of people, who want to live in a healthy and mindful way, but sometimes even the ones who could not care less. Well let me explain . . .
I do work as a nurse in a home for mentally retarded people, and on my ward, I do care for 8 people with severe autism, who have some difficulties with more or less every aspect of their life. I am lucky enough to work in a nursing home that trys to be a real home for this people, and so we get every meal freshly cooked and do some prepwork ouself. And while we are not a vegan ore vegitarian home, and my patients can not really choose how to eat, its very importend for me to let them have healthy and delicious food, wich brings me to this recepi.
You see, I had some cherrys from dessert left over, and normaly I would just give them the cherrys in a bowl and call it a day, but, well, it´s christmastime, it´s cold, most of my patients have no family to spoil them a bit, so I used this recipe (slightly changed because oft the cherrys and I had to use normal milk . . . sorry) to lift up the normal afternoon snack they would get. Took me 5 minutes to make 4 cakes for the patients that where not at home that day, a bit more to bake them in the microwave and they loved, loved, loved it and eate every last crumb from a dish they could not ask for and do not know about.
So thank you very much for bringing a bit of joy and fun to those, who never ask for annything.
My first but not last cake in a mug. My daughter is taking classes online, so made one for her break. She also loved it, and she isn't sold on all my vegan recipes for sure.
Holy forking shirtballs this was amazing and just what I was hoping for! I had been craving a huge blueberry muffin but didn’t want to make 12 muffins and end up eating them all 😊
Lazy Sunday afternoon with the family, and these were a huge hit! Thank you, Sadia!
Love love love this one! This is the third one I've made of the mug cake recipes, I added a square of dark chocolate just to give it a twist and it turned out sooo yummy! Love these recipes, if you follow them to the T they are perfect every time 💜
Absolutely amazing, delicious and perfect for when you have a craving!!
Amazing, I often make those
Mug cakes are the perfect dessert for one! Quick and no clean up!! Anything blueberry is my favorite so this one hit the spot.
I used frozen blackberries, light brown sugar, canola oil, and Costco's coconut "beverage" instead of blueberries, sugar, vegetable oil, and soymilk. It yielded a lightly sweet, very moist mug cake!
I love how versatile this recipe is because it turned out even with all my swapped ingredients.
My cake didn't rise much, probably because of all my swap outs. Not sure which swap caused it boy to rise but I'm still happy.
Can you use almond milk or lactose free milk instead of soy milk?
This is seriously incredible. SO DELICIOUS and perfect portion/level of sweetness!! Thank you!
Wonderful late night treat to satisfy the craving. Came together easily and quickly. I added 2 teaspoons cocoa powder with my frozen berries to make up for the water they produced. Plus a 1/4 tsp maca powder and now you’ve got a LOVELY cake. Thanks PUL team.
My favourite mug cake of all time. I've done this one at least ten times since I came across it and it always comes out great, dense and really satisfies any sweet tooth. I just love how it's a true cake, not just oats with banana mashed together. Sometimes I add whole wheat flour when I don't have all-purpose on my hands and it's all the same amazing!
Love all of your mug cake recipes! I've tried making this as a gluten-free version with oat flour (similar to the TIkTok blended baked oats). I made a slightly larger portion, using 1/3cup oat flour + 1 tbsp almond flour, 1/2 mashed banana, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and about 1/4 cup plant milk. It should cook similarly in a microwave
This is so delicious! So quick but tastes decadent.
Beautiful and delicious...I'm going to make a few dozen and share them with my friends and family :)
OMG, I would have never thought having such a treat could be SO easy! I loved it. Thank you for all your great easy recipes
The batter was great but when it got microwaved, it was really gummy. Don't know what I did wrong.
I need one favor :)
please suggest any substitute for cinnamon powder...
Loads of loveeeee :)))))
Loved it! With a London Fog tea ☕️! Perfection!
How do you feel about substituting regular flour with almond or other types? Whole wheat?
Curious why you recommend refined coconut oil? I though unrefined is healthier?
I really couldn't believe how good this came out. I was worried if my cup (thin and tall) would make it worse somehow, but it still came out great even with my centuries old microwave. This was super delicious, changed blueberries to frozen black currant berries. The sweet and souresk experience was something far beyond of our usual after breakfast delight XD
Hi Pick Up Limes Team!
I finally tried it this weekend! it was so easy and delicious! Now I'm inspired to host a small group of friends to make our own mug cakes for breakfast next weekend. Thank you for the recipe and also the pretty website that's easy to use!
I just made this, and it was incredible! I was instantly transported back to my childhood eating my grandma’s huckleberry coffee cake while it was still warm from the oven. I will definitely make it again! I didn’t make any changes, and it came out perfectly.
Just tried this with a few changes, I make my own oatmeal flour and I added organic maple syrup rather than sugar and used raspberries. Super quick and easy, love your quick easy clean foods. note: I added a little more flour since the maple syrup brought in more liquid.
This quick recipe was super delicious - Thank you.
It's my new favourite mug cake. Super easy and de-li-cious. Just right for my sweet tooth :3
Hi Pick Up Limes!
This was a lovely recipe - very quick and easy! I have a couple of questions:
1. Could I substitute the blueberries for any other fruit I have on hand - like apples, bananas or strawberries?
2. Is there a way to make the top more firm? I love the crisp muffin top of cafe style muffins, and I'd love to know if it's possible to recreate :)
Just what I needed for a quick and tasty treat!
Just made this, it’s absolutely delish and so easy to make!
Two words: ✨T O O G O O D.✨
I tried this with strawberries and it's SO good!! It needed an extra 30 seconds in the microwave but aside from that I didn't change a thing. Will definitely be making this again when I'm craving something sweet!
This tastes exactly like the blueberrymuffins I ate before I went plantbased. Wow!
Whenever running late, I make these. It is super easy and quick. Absolutely delicious, just like the double chocolate mug cake 😁
Thuis recipe is also very good with pine apple. But be careful the pine apple is very hot when it comes out of the microwave.
A hug in a mug! Thanks for sharing this lovely, easy piece of safe-heaven for a busy day :)
This recipe + the double choc mug cake is on repeat in my house! It’s delicious and dangerously easy to make.
I've always been very bad at making microwavable mug cakes, but this was a success and I absolutely loved it!
After watching your video I really want to try one of your mug cakes and it turned out great! Instead of using blueberries I used raspberries and it still turned out great. Usually mug cakes don't end up working for me but this recipe was delicious :)
Hi Sadia and the PUL team, this mug cake is absolutely amazing - definitely the best one I’ve had so far! Keep up the great work xoxo
Really good if you're looking for something not very sweet; I tried it with frozen blueberries and I don't think I was a very good idea, I'll give it another try with fresh ones
This is absolutely amazing Sadia and the PUL team! 😍 🧁
I love what u guys are doing, thank you so much for creating PUL Sadia as your biggest 10 yr old fan! I have this when I’m binge watching Netflix!
And this is by far the best mug cake I’ve ever had!
Ty again! XOXO 😘
Hi Sadia, I love all your recipes and the way you present them. Also the new website design is beautiful and so useful as well. :) Do you also plan to launch mobile apps someday?
I had a question here if we could substitute white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose? What flours can I substitute in general on your recipes if I'm allergic to all purpose? Would I need to adjust water or milk accordingly?
Thanks again and keep up your amazing/inspiring work! ❤️
I tried it out twice but for some reason I haven't been able to get it right. It looks quite oily and has a rubber-like texture. Could you please help me out with this?
Hi, can oat milk be used for this tecipe? Looks so delicious and cant wait to try.
I really want to try this recipe! Just wondering if I can replace the sugar with Maple syrup? Thanks!
I tried this recipe out with chickpea flour instead because I wanted some protein in my dessert. It turned out delicious!! I also added some walnuts (highly recommend). I'm now obsessed with mug cakes. Thank you for this recipe :)
The frozen bluberries worked well too. No issues with them.
Yes Yes Yes!!!!!!!!!!
I was kind of skeptical about how well this would work and taste, but I was very pleasantly surprised! Definitely recommend this recipe :)
I have just tried it and it's really good, so easy and tasty. Thank you for sharing😊and congratulations, the website is really cool and user friendly.
Hi Sadia and the team at PickUpLimes!
I tried this recipe and absolutely LOVED it. I made this as a treat for myself post my classes and paired with with my coffee and it was wonderful.
Also, I’m so impressed with the website! It looks great and I enjoyed following through the recipe with the new strike-out feature! :D
Thank you for your hard work and I hope you all stay safe 🌻
I love this mug cake, it's the perfect balance between sweet and sour. Also I learnt that frozen blueberries work just as well! Thanks for uploading some easy snack ideas. It's what I struggle most with after becoming vegan.
Looks simple & yummy.
How to bake the mug cake if you don't have microwave but regular oven? How long and at which temperature (pre-heated?)?
Can't wait to bake! Yum...
