Mug Cake

This is definitely the easiest (and laziest) cake recipe I have ever made! It may not be as soft as a regular sponge cake, but it’s equally tasty. I have made a basic and a chocolate cake.

Makes 2 to 3 mug cakes 

For basic cake

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter plus some for coating mugs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 60 mL milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  1. Place butter in a bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds until melted
  2. Coat inside of  mugs with melted butter
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, milk, melted butter, vanilla extract and egg until blended (butter may still be warm, add egg at the end to prevent curdling)
  4. Add flour and salt, whisk until smooth
  5. Pour into mugs, no more than half full
  6. Microwave for about 90 seconds 
  7. Let cool for a few minutes, serve warm.
  8. You can top with icing, whipped cream or fruits after completely cooled

For chocolate cake

  • Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to batter. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup!

Cooking time may vary depending on microwaves and size of mugs.
