Mug Cake Recipes

Mug Cake Recipes

January 16, 2013

Ashton Keefe Ashton Keefe Staff Writer

    Baking doesn’t have to take hours in the kitchen. If you have 5 minutes and a few pantry staples, you can make satisfying and delicious cakes in any microwave-safe mug. Chocolate, vanilla, red velvet—the sky’s the limit when it comes to flavors.

Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

You’ll need: 4 large microwave-safe mugs

INGREDIENTS
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup high quality cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
3/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Toppings, like whipped cream, powdered sugar or chocolate sauce

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Combine all ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not over mix.
2. Divide between four mugs. One at a time, microwave on high for 2 1/2-3 minutes, until cake rises above the mug.
3. Let cool for 2 minutes and garnish with desired toppings.

Tip: Cakes can be made in mugs, cooled and then frozen for up to 1 month. Add toppings just before serving.


Vanilla Mug Cake Recipe

Follow the chocolate mug cake recipe, substituting seeds from 1/2 a vanilla bean (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract) for the cocoa. Cut the bean in half lengthwise, then use a small sharp knife to scrape out the seeds. Garnish with twirls of lemon peel.

Tip: For a stronger lemon flavor, use 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest instead. Finish with a lemon glaze: Heat 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice over low heat and stir until sugar melts. Brush over cakes while they’re still warm and let it soak in for 20-30 minutes before serving.

Red Velvet Mug Cake

Follow chocolate mug cake recipe, adding 1 tablespoon of red food coloring. Top with cream cheese frosting and fresh strawberry slices.

I saw one the other day for a chocolate chip cookie in a mug. Add a spoonful of vanilla ice cream and some hot fudge and that is heaven right there!

even easier, I took a box of angel food cake, a box of cinnamon spice cake (any other flavor works, that's what I had in the cupboard). you mix em together and then put 3 tbsp of the mix, 2tbsp water, mix and put it in the microwave for 1 minute. It's really awesome :) if you used chocolate cake with the angel food, you could add chocolate chips or whatever. I do so like the indie cakes.
