Pistachio Pudding Mug Cake

Mary Ann F


Mug cakes are your best bet for a quick and easy dessert. There are many variations out there and if you give my recipe a try feel free to leave me a comment. This pistachio mug cake is a nice balance of sweet and salty. Make it your own by adding white chocolate chips or topping it with cool-whip or your favorite icing. I simply topped mine with prepared pistachio pudding by combining 2 tablespoons of jello pistachio pudding mix with 4 tablespoons of cold milk. My cravings were satisfied without the additional guilt of picking at any leftover cake. I hope you enjoy it!

How to Make Pistachio Pudding Mug Cake


  1. Mix all the ingredients until combined.
  2. Pour batter into a greased microwavable (standard size) coffee mug.
  3. Microwave at highest setting for aproxiamtely 90 seconds. Please note that cooking times vary depending on your microwave and you will need to watch the batter as it cooks. I find that once you notice the batter rise to it's highest point, give it an additional 20 seconds in the microwave and quickly check to see if the cake springs back when you press the center of the batter. If it does not spring back, microwave at 15 second intervals and checking every time until it does so. Do not over-cook otherwise it'll dry out.
