I love a great air fryer mug cake, they are amazing! And if you are like me, one of the reasons that you purchased an air fryer was for cooking for 1 or 2 people. So, while you may love to have a great air fryer cake, a mug cake will come in very handy, and they take very little time to make in the air fryer.
So, if you are looking for a quick and easy dessert, this is one of my favorites. Filled with fresh strawberries, this is a very moist and delicious cake.
What Size Mug?
One of the most common questions everyone asks me. I tell everyone to use whatever mug that they own that is oven safe. Because usually if something is oven safe it is air fryer safe.
If you are not sure if your mugs are oven safe, grab a ramekin, or a small oven-safe bowl. They will both work just as well.
Note: The deeper your mug is, the less your mug will be filled, so if you want to fill the entire mug, double the recipe. It will work the same. Although please remember the cooking time might be increased since the air fryer has more to cook up.
How to Make Air Fryer Strawberry & Cream Mug Cake
With only a few ingredients, your cake bakes up this cake right in the air fryer. Today’s cake was filled with fresh strawberries (a great idea for strawberry season, which is right around the corner)
In a small mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, heavy cream, milk, sugar, and diced strawberries.
Spray your mug or ramekin with cooking spray.
Pour the cake batter into the ramekin or cup. And set into the air fryer for 8-12 minutes at 320 degrees F, air fryer setting. Note: The larger your mug or cup is, the longer it will take to air fry. Continue to air fry until the cake is fully cooked.
How To Make This Cake Vegan and Gluten-Free
This dessert can easily be changed to a vegan cake. Change the milk out to an appropriate milk alternative. You can use almond milk, and it will work the same.
Make this a gluten-free dessert, change the flour to gluten-free flour, and use a gluten-free baking powder.
Toppings You Can Use
While today, I used a simple homemade whipped cream. You can substitute it for traditional buttercream frosting.
It will work great, with the sweetness of the cream and the fresh strawberries.
