After seeing Angie’s mug cakes I’ve become obsessed with making them. I’ve been a bit gung-ho with anything strawberry flavored lately so, after mastering several chocolate mug cakes, I decided to try and make a strawberries and cream mug cake. I loved the idea of a fruity flavored cake that would be delicious topped with fresh strawberries and cream this summer. Fortunately, several google searches pointed me in the direction of some great recipes and I got to work developing one of my own. What you see here is the result of several experiments and finally landing on what I hope is a great cake. My coffee mugs are kind of short and squat so this batter makes two mugs, but it would do well in one mug if it was taller than mine. Enjoy!

2 tablespoons strawberry yogurt, well stirred
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream for serving
1. Coat the inside of the mug lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
2. Mix the egg, yogurt, vegetable oil, baking powder, extract, sugar and flour in a small bowl until completely smooth.
3. Fill the mug to halfway full and place it in the microwave. Bake it for 3 to 4 mintues, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Top with strawberries and whipped cream and serve.
