I was first introduced to mug cakes when I started my baking journey about three years ago. A mug cake literally means "a cake baked in a mug". Mug cakes are sometimes preferred over traditional cakes as these can be made in no time and in individual portions. Once it is ready you eat it directly from the mug.

I always make my mug cakes from scratch in my microwave oven since I do not have oven proof mugs. Honestly, mug cakes also look cute, in addition to everything else. I sometimes even like to put together a batch of my soft plain cake recipe and make it in mugs. I do this especially when I have a couple of friends coming over. Everyone can have their own portion, which is bigger than a cupcake but does not require cutting or dividing a large cake. Mug cakes can also be decorated with a frosting of your choice and other decorations. Imagine a dark chocolate mug cake in a pink-colored mug with whipped and sprinkles on the top.

Mug cakes are usually made without eggs. The least number of eggs that can be added to a recipe is one. You do not require one whole egg for making one mug cake. If you want to use eggs nevertheless, my suggestion is to beat the egg and add a couple of tablespoons of that into the batter.

Mug cakes are mostly made in microwave ovens. Most commonly available mugs are not oven-safe so it is the best to make them in mugs. Baking in microwave ovens can be tricky. Microwaves cannot be preheated. If the power is too low, the Batter may not get cooked completely. On the other hand, the cake may turn out to be hard if the power is too high. I had a couple of failed attempts while making mug cakes from scratch initially. They would seem to be perfect when I tested them for doneness but would become exceptionally hard after cooling down a bit. To overcome this problem I tried making them at about 60% power and I have been successful. The trick here is that since the cake gets hard if you let it bake completely before taking it out of the oven it becomes hard. So let it be a little uncooked and will be done by the time you eat it.

Alternatively, you can make your mock oven with a large cooking pot. You will also need a lid that covers the pan completely without letting air in. Place it on the burner with a metal stand inside and cover the pot and let it heat for 5 mins at high flame. Then you put the mug containing the cake batter inside the pot, cover with the lid and turn the flame to medium. Check for doneness after it has baked for 5-7 minutes.

I always prepare the batter in the mug if making just one or two of them. The idea is to make things as hasslefree as possible. Also, since a mug cake is never 'de-molded', the 'cake pan' does not have to be prepared. So for my mug cake recipe from scratch, I just need a mug and a couple of spoons. So let's get to the actual mug cake recipe now.

Mug Cake Recipe From Scratch

Ingredients for an easy mug cake preparation

  • Flour                       4 Tbsp
  • Sugar (powdered)   4 Tbsp
  • Milk Powder           1 Tbsp
  • Baking Powder       ¼ Tsp
  • Baking Soda           A pinch
  • Milk                        1-2 Tsp  
  • Oil                           1  Tbsp         
  • Vanilla Essence       ¼ Tsp
  • Vinegar                    ¼ Tsp

Method to Make a Healthy Mug Cake

1. Add all the ingredients except milk and vinegar to the mug and mix lightly till it is well combined.

2. Add milk to adjust the consistency. The batter should not be too runny but not dry either. Don't add all the milk at one go. Add a little at first and mix.

3. Add more only if the batter is too thick.

4. Bake in a microwave oven or in a preheated pot till a toothpick inserted into the center of the mug comes out clean.

This cake is so easy to put together and so delicious. What I like best about mug cakes is that you could hold sit by your window, hold the mug in your hand and eat the cake with a spoon. Amazing!
