1 Minute Blueberry Pop-Tart Mug Cake Recipe


Pop-tarts have long been one of our favorite treats. Once we mastered the regular pop-tart recipe (which is anything but “regular”) we decided to make it into any other type of dessert we could think of: cereal, cake, holiday themed, s’mores, breakfast flavored, the list goes on & on. Today we’re thrilled to unveil our latest pop-tart creation, the pop-tart mug cake recipe! It’s beyond delicious, takes only 1 minute to make, & is a the perfect hybrid between cake & a pop-tart. Pop-tarts are known to come in a wide variety of flavors & this mug cake can totally be made into any of those: cookie dough (fill the center with some & then top with a hot fudge), strawberry (swap out the blueberry jam for strawberry jam), brown sugar cinnamon (fill the center with 1/2 tsp brown sugar & 1/4 tsp cinnamon then top with icing made from powdered sugar, vanilla, & a pinch of cinnamon). Comment below your favorite Pop-Tart flavor!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1 cake
  • for cake:
  • 1½ tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2½ tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder

  1. In microwavable mug combine the butter, milk, sugars, flour, & baking powder. Stir to combine. Using the back of your spoon form a hole in the center of the batter & place the jam inside of the hole. Lightly spoon the batter over the jam so that it is completely covered. Place in microwave for 45-50 seconds.
  2. While the cake is cooking, combine icing ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Let cake cool for 1-2 minutes & then spoon icing over the top. For the full pop-tart effect leave a border of cake around the sides. Immediately top with sprinkles, serve, & enjoy!
