Recipe type: Cake
Serves: 3
  • For Cake:
  • All Purpose Flour - ¾ cup
  • Cane Sugar - 6 tablespoon
  • Baking Powder - ¾ teaspoon
  • Cinnamon Powder - ¾ teaspoon
  • Vanilla Extract - 1 ½ teaspoon
  • Milk - ¾ cup
  • Melted Butter - 4 ½ tablespoon
  • Garnish:
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and sugar. Mix them well.
  2. Now, add the wet ingredients and whisk them well until they are blended together.
  3. Pour the ingredients into the mug.
  4. Microwave for 2 minutes until the center of the mug is set.
  5. Sprinkle topping on top of the cake.
  6. Serve it warm or let it cool completely before serving.
1. Use any microwaveable bowl or mug
2. Ensure not to fill the entire cup. Fill only ¾ Th of the mug
3. Mug cakes might sink in but that doesn’t make it less than a cake
4. Add a tablespoon of water/milk on top of the batter in mug. This will prevent over-baking, drying out and prevents becoming rubbery. Addition of water on top results in a moist soft cake
5. Troubleshoot your cake – test the center of the mug cake. If they stick slightly, then it’s perfect. If it doesn’t, then you over-baked. If it is still wet, microwave for another 5-10 seconds
6. Do not add baking powder more than the mentioned level. Adding more baking powder will raise the flour over the edge of the cake but then later, it sinks in providing an undesirably dense chewy texture to the cake
7. Mug cakes become hard even after 10 minutes. No worries, add a scoop of ice cream with nuts or your favorite nut butter or favorite sauce (chocolate/berry) and enjoy a perfect dessert
8. Don’t forget to save an additional cup for you in the microwave as you never know that you would get your share because it is “Just Perfect Enough to Attract Everyone towards It”.
