Mug Cake Recipes
Chocolate Chip Mug Cake
4 tbsp all purpose flour
2 tbsp brown sugar (lightly packed)
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp low fat milk
1/8 tsp vanilla
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips
1. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips into a microwave safe mug. This is a small cake so you can use an 8 oz. mug and it should just reach the top when finished cooking. You can also use an oversized mug, but the cake will be lower in the mug. Mix with a small, sturdy whisk until a smooth batter forms and no lumps remain.
2. Stir in half of the chocolate chips. Sprinkle remaining half over surface. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. Let cool a few minutes before eating.
Snickerdoodle Mug Cake
Yield: 1 mug cake
Snickerdoodle Mug Cake bakes up in the microwave in just one minute, yielding a warm, cinnamon-sugary treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth!
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup milk, at room temperature
2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon sugar
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining. Blend in milk, butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Into a 14-ounce (or larger) microwave-safe mug with straight sides, scoop a big spoonful of batter, then sprinkle with a spoonful of cinnamon sugar. Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar.
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until cake is done to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
Tips, Tricks, & Variations
A tall, cylindrical mug with straight (not angled) sides will ensure that the cake bakes evenly. I found a 14-ounce mug to be the perfect size to allow the cake to rise up while baking without overflowing. (I filled my mug to the top with water and then transferred the water to a measuring cup to determine its capacity.) If you use a smaller mug, you may want to bake the cake on top of a plate or paper towel to catch any possible overflow.
The strength of individual microwaves can vary. The first time you make this recipe, be prepared to experiment a bit to make sure that 1 minute is the perfect length of baking time. The nice thing about this cake is that even if it is undercooked, you don't have to worry about raw eggs!
Funfetti Mug Cake
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pinch of salt (very light pinch!)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons sprinkles
In an 8-ounce (that's a fairly standard size) mug, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Make a small well and add the milk, vanilla and oil. Mix just until combined. Stir in the sprinkles.
Microwave for 90 seconds at 70-80% power (adjusting as needed depending on the heat/power of your microwave). Serve warm with a dollop of frozen yogurt or ice cream, if desired.
Brownie in a Mug Recipe
Some mugs don't microwave well because there is metal in their ceramic glaze. They'll work but they may get very hot. Best to use a plain old everyday un-fancy mug.
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa (natural, unsweetened)
Pinch of salt
Tiny pinch of cinnamon
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp canola oil or vegetable oil (NOT extra virgin olive oil, it's too strongly flavored)
1 to 2 drops vanilla extract
1 small scoop of ice cream or 1 or 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream to serve
1. Place flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and cinnamon in a microwave safe ceramic mug. Stir with a fork or spoon to mix well and break up any clumps.
2. Add the oil, water, and vanilla to the cup and stir until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps.
3. Place in microwave and heat on high until the mixture is cooked through, about a 1 minute and 40 seconds for a 1000 watt microwave. You may have to experiment and adjust the time for less or more powerful microwaves. If you don't know the power level on your microwave, start with 60 seconds and increase until the brownie is done. It should still be moist when cooked through, not dry.
4. Let cool for a minute and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a teaspoon or two of whipping cream poured over.d mug, but the cake will be lower in the mug. Mix with a small, sturdy whisk until a smooth batter forms and no lumps remain.
3. Place in microwave and heat on high until the
