2-Minute Single Serve Microwave Condensed Milk

Make this frosting first and add the coconut and nuts to make the frosting and let it sit for a minute while you make the mug cake.


  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered gentle sweet Or 2 tablespoons powdered Swerve
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon toasted unsweetened coconut flakes or untoasted but toasted is best
  • 3 pecan halves broken up or equivalent pieces


  1. Add the cream, sweetener, and salt to a heavy, microwave-safe bowl with plenty of room. Don’t crowd it.* Remember this gets very hot and bubbles in the microwave.
  2. Cook for one minute; remove and stir.
  3. Return and cook for 1 minute and 15 seconds more and it will begin to thicken.
  4. Whisk carefully again and it will really bubble as you stir.
  5. It will thicken more as it sits and once you add the other ingredients.*
  6. If you refrigerate it then it will thicken even more.
  7. Add toasted coconut flakes and pecans then set aside.
