Recipe Notes

  • Fresh Strawberries: Use fresh, frozen, or thawed strawberries for best results.
  • Ramekins: You can use a mug or ramekin. Make sure that they are both oven-safe, which usually means air-fryer-safe. Remember to check your manufacturer’s website before using any additional dish.
  • Timing: Since every air fryer is slightly different, you must check on the mug cake as it cooks.

Pro Tips

  • Slice Strawberries Evenly: Slice the strawberries evenly to promote even cooking and flavor distribution throughout the cobbler.
  • Adjust Sweetness to Taste: Taste the strawberry mixture before assembling the cobbler and adjust the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of the berries and your preference.
  • Use Cold Butter: For a flakier cobbler topping, use cold butter and cut it into small pieces before mixing it with the flour mixture.
  • Don’t Overfill the Mug: Leave some space at the top of the mug to allow the cobbler to expand as it cooks without overflowing.
  • Rotate the Mug: If necessary, halfway through the cooking time, rotate the mug in the air fryer basket to ensure even browning of the cobbler topping.
  • Let it Cool Slightly: Allow the cobbler to cool a few minutes after cooking before serving to avoid burning your mouth, and allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Serve with Ice Cream or Whipped Cream: For an extra indulgent treat, serve the warm cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Air Fryer Strawberry & Cream Mug Cake


Can I use frozen strawberries instead of fresh for the cobbler? Yes, you can use frozen strawberries, but make sure to thaw them and drain any excess liquid before using in the cobbler.

How do I adjust the cooking time for different air fryer models? Cooking times may vary depending on the wattage and model of your air fryer. Start with the recommended time in the recipe and adjust as needed based on your specific air fryer’s performance.

Can I make this recipe gluten-free? Yes, you can use a gluten-free flour blend as a substitute for all-purpose flour to make the recipe gluten-free.

What size mug should I use for this recipe? Use a microwave-safe mug that can hold at least 8-10 ounces (237-295 ml) to ensure there is enough space for the cobbler to rise as it cooks.

Can I prepare the cobbler ahead of time and cook it later? It’s best to assemble and cook the cobbler right before serving for the freshest taste and texture. However, you can prepare the ingredients in advance and assemble just before cooking.

How do I know when the cobbler is done cooking? The cobbler is done when the topping is golden brown and crispy, and the strawberries are bubbling. Use a toothpick to test the topping for doneness—it should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Can I double or triple the recipe to make more servings? Yes, you can easily scale up the ingredients to make multiple servings of the cobbler. Simply adjust the quantities accordingly and divide the mixture evenly among the mugs.

Can I use other fruits instead of strawberries? Yes, you can use other fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, or peaches to make variations of the cobbler. Adjust the sweetness and seasonings accordingly based on the fruit you choose.

What should I do if my cobbler topping is too dry? If the cobbler topping is too dry, you can drizzle a little melted butter over it before cooking or add a splash of milk to the batter to moisten it slightly.

Can I reheat leftover cobbler? Yes, you can reheat leftover cobbler in the microwave for a few seconds until warmed through. Enjoy it fresh or with a scoop of ice cream for a delicious treat.
