Cake Mugs

Any one craving for a quick sweet treat at home? Then you have got to try this recipe out. Call it what you want … Cake-in-a-mug, microwave cake, or just cake mugs. It tastes good. I got this simple idea from another website. It has a list of a variety of cakes. I am giving you the simplest one to try out for now. It is just another version of our ever favorite vanilla sponge cakes, but microwaved in a mug which is ready in 5 minutes.

I must admit, these are slightly tricky to make. A couple of trials are required to make it look right. However, no batch goes for a waste as they taste delicious. It really is the perfect dessert for a sweet midnight treat.

All you need is a mug, a microwave oven, the ingredients listed below and a fork to whisk it all together.

Ingredients

Butter …………………………………..2 tablespoons

Egg………………………………………1 large (makes for two cake mugs)

Milk ……………………………………..2 tablespoons

Sugar …………………………………..1/4 cup

All purpose flour ……………………..1/4 cup

Vanilla essence………………………..1/2 teaspoons

Baking powder ………………………..1/2 teaspoon

Salt ………………………………………a pinch

Method

  1. Melt the butter in the oven for a minute in medium heat.
  2. Add egg, and milk to the melted butter  and whisk it with a fork for a minute.
  3. Then add the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, and essence of a flavoring of your choice and incorporate it well into the egg mixture.
  4. Divide the batter between two mugs and microwave it for two full minutes in high. The cakes usually rise, but deflate once the oven stops. If you want to avoid that, try using smaller mugs or use this recipe to make one cake mug at a time.

Note: There is no crust that forms on top.
