5 minutes Eggless Cake-in-a-Mug!

Cake in a Mug!

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
― Charles M. Schulz

Celebrating February, a month of Love and we believe in Love,  in every form! We promised our foodies a Valentine’s Day Menu.. a menu that would help you plan a surprise for your loved one.. your partner, parents, friends or siblings!  We would especially like to dedicate this recipe to our male subscribers, not only because it is easy to make but also because it is quick and uses simple ingredients! We promise it would help you gain those brownie points that you can cash on for the rest of the year!

This recipe is : Without egg, quick and being the first recipe of our Valentine’s Day Series – has Chocolate!  As Jo Brand said “Anything is good if it’ s made of chocolate” and we do not want to take chances on our first recipe of this series, do we? 🙂 156hungerlane_vday

The USP of this recipe is how  quick it is to make, and we do not really want to dilute that by making you lose time in reading between the lines :P. So without any further ado, here is what you need: 

thingsyouneed

Of course, a Cake-in-a-Mug recipe would require a Mug but remember, the more interesting the mug , the better the impact!  Be a little creative! We especially bought this red mug to give you an idea of what we mean!

Choco-chips and Cocoa Powder are the main ingredients! I recently got my hands on Van Houten Chocolate Powder (as in the picture) and I am super happy with the results! You may choose any brand that you have/ like.

And last but not the least, the Heart urges you to pour your heart out in your cooking, especially when its meant for someone dear, believe you me, the results would reflect your feelings completely!

Moving ahead, along with these main items, here’s what you would need:

Recipe

You may add choco-chips while beating the cake batter  or just top few chips on the top before the mug goes in the microwave – we did  BOTH! ( We never have enough of Chocolate, do we?) Irrespective of what the size of the mug is, just fill it to the quarter (or the cake would not cook completely). Don’t be too tempted to cook the cake for too long in the microwave, it dries up a lot faster in convection cooking and can eventually burn. (In my first attempt months ago, I had my cakes on fumes!)PicMonkey Collage

With a little judgement,  this Recipe is really a no fail. It is also ideal for any occasion where you wish to serve individual portions! For now, try it to surprise your Beloved and wish the last few days of these winters a warm chocolatey Goodbye!

Hope this recipe works wonders for you! We would be back soon with few more interesting recipes in this 8 day countdown to the Valentines Day! Watch this space!

Love,

Rashi

    i dont have microwave:(is there any other procedure??

    • Well, cakes are generally made in ovens, this recipe is fast because it uses convection cooking of microwave. If you have an oven, use this recipe (in a oven safe mug) but you will have to keep it for over 6-10 mins depending on the oven configuration. Alternatively, you may even pressure cook it (without whistle) like any cooker cake! Hope that helps!

        Help me rashi make the vanilla cake in a mug ? Come fast

    Hi Rashi can I make this with some chocolate powder? I made it with cocoa powder and came out great

    • Thanks for writing back, you can definitely make it with chocolate powder, you will have to adjust sugar quantity accordingly. Cocoa is bitter and more chocolate-y compared to Chocolate powder, with minor adjustments it should come just as great! Let us know when you try! We’d love to hear!

  12. kanika

    hi..thnks fr the wonderful recipe..i tried it and it was yumm!! but just one minor query, when i left the cake for 1 hour or so after baking ,it got very hard like rusk…y?? pls reply..thnks in advance

    • Thanks for writing in Kanika. Frankly, my cake in a mug disappears just as fast as it is made.. so I have never personally experienced them getting hard.. but now that u have shared this, the only logical explanation could be due to high microwave cooking! Microwave excites the water in the food and doesn’t let it bind the way it does in normal slow cooking. Even if you overcook this cake in microwave you will see it dries very fast and can be on fumes. That is why microwave cooking method works only if subject to controlled time and food items like these should be consumed when hot! Hope this answers your query.
      Cheers,
      Rashi

    can we use olive oil???

    • If you like the flavor then definitely, the purpose of the oil is to bind and coagulate the ingredients.. so olive oil should work just as fine.. ( we haven’t personally tried it though)

    FANTASTIC RECIPE! I made some alterations though because I didn’t have any cocoa powder.
    3 T APF
    1.5 T PB2 (peanut butter powder)
    3 T Powdered Sugar
    1/4 tsp Baking Powder
    Pinch of salt
    1.5 T Canola Oil
    3 T Milk
    tiny bit of vanilla extract

    Cooked for 1 minute in my 900 Watt microwave. The cake is fluffy and flavorful, not chewy or eggy (reason I wanted an eggless recipe…haven’t found the perfect with egg recipe yet).

    BEST Cake in a Mug recipe I’ve tried yet! .. And I’ve tried a ton! So happy!!
