Why You Will Love This Recipe
- This mug cake is super easy to make, straight in the mug, comes together in less than 2 minutes, and tastes incredible. The best thing about mug cakes is that they have easy recipes and come together with a handful of pantry staples.
- These types of cakes are very suitable for when there’s nothing sweet in the house and you don’t want to bake. Also, these microwave mug cakes are pleasant for two friend gatherings.

What do You need to Make Biscoff Mug Cake?
- Biscoff cookie butter: The main flavor of this cake is Biscoff cookie butter, which gives a sweet, spicy, and caramel taste to the mug cake.
- Flour: I used all-purpose flour for this recipe.
- Baking powder: Baking powder ensures that your mug cake rises and fluffs.
- Milk: You can use dairy or non-dairy milk.
- Vegetable oil: The oil in the recipe helps to moisturize the texture of the cake.
- Sugar: The cookie butter itself is sweet, so you do not need to add too much sweetener. A spoonful of sugar or maple syrup is enough. I used brown sugar which has a mild sweetness.
- Extra cookie butter and ice cream for topping.
How to Make This Mug Cake?
Add Biscoff spread into a microwave-safe mug. Microwave Biscoff spread for 20 – 30 seconds. It should be soft and runny. Add flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt into the mug and mix well. Add milk, cookie spread, oil, sugar, and mix until just combined. Microwave for 60 to 90 seconds. Remove from the microwave and top with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle warm Biscoff cookie butter.
How to Make Biscoff Mug Cake Like a Pro?
- Make sure that your mug is labeled as microwave-safe.
- You may not get the best results the first few times you make mug cakes because the power of the microwave ovens is different and each microwave cooks differently this causes the baking time of the cake to be variable.
- Before starting, gather the ingredients and place them on the countertop. Measure the required ingredients accurately.
- How do you keep a mug cake from overflowing? Don’t fill the mug more than half full otherwise you will end up with a huge mess all over your microwave.
- Avoid overmixing! Overmixing the batter will build up the gluten in the flour and resulting in tough, dense textured mug cake.
- The batter doubles in size when baked, so be sure to choose a large mug that can hold this amount. Mugs with straight sides are more suitable. If you are using a wide and short mug you should reduce the cooking time to avoid dry texture.
Mug Cake Toppings
Another good thing about mug cakes is that you can serve them with different toppings and they are completely customizable. Here are a few ideas:
- Ice cream: This mug cake goes very well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or Biscoff ice cream.
- Whipped cream: Like regular cupcakes and cakes, whipped cream and buttercream are other options for topping. You can prepare buttercream with cookie butter flavor for your mag cake topping.
- Cookie butter: You can serve Biscoff mug cake topped with a dollop of cookie butter to add an extra taste of Biscoff cookies in every bite.
- Chocolate chips: I really love the combination of white chocolate and cookie butter in sweets and desserts. Top the cake with chocolate chips and enjoy!
- Fresh fruits: If you do not have any of the above, you can head to the fruit drawer in the refrigerator. Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are the fruits that go well with this mug cake.
Can I Use Self-rising Flour In This Recipe?
Yes! Self-rising flour is flour with the raising agent and a bit of salt already added. If you use self-rising flour, you do not even need to add baking powder and salt.
Why Are Mug Cakes Dry?
Do not overbake your mug cakes. Mug cakes have a short baking time and dry very quickly. To prevent the cake texture from drying out, stop the microwaving as soon as you notice that the surface of the cake is no longer wet and undercooked. Another way to check doneness is to insert a toothpick into the center of the cake after a minute. If it comes out clean, with a few cake crumbs, it is done.
Mug cakes are one of the best on-demand and single-serving desserts. They are best when served warm from the microwave. Just let your cake 5 minutes to cool and then dig in!
Can You Bake Mug Cakes in the Oven?
Yes, you can bake your mug cakes in the oven. The difference is that the baking time in the oven will be longer. Pour the cake batter into oven-safe mugs or ramekins. Preheated oven at 350F and bake for 15-20 minutes.
