2 Min Mug Cake

Having 2 adult sons and both fond of cakes, this chocolate mug cake recipe is like a boon for me. Both of them love having this cake. My son, Shivang often prefers to have this mug cake for his breakfast as he finds it handy. And I also don’t mind since I make this with wheat flour. Yes, the taste remains the same as with all-purpose flour. Also, putting up this cake batter is so easy that even I don’t mind. 

Even children can make this mug cake without making any mess.

This is because, all the ingredients are mixed in the cup itself and the same mug goes into the microwave, and then you eat from the same mug. So, all it needs is just 1 mug and 1 spoon for mixing. So simple it is.

Why Make A Mug Cake?

This cake is ideal for your sweet cravings or for breakfast or when you just want to have a single serving or when you want a little bit of cake for your Ice Cream Sundaes. The other advantage is that daily you can bake a fresh mug cake and that too in varied flavors.

 

Baking With Wheat Flour

When baking cakes with wheat flour, everything remains the same except for the quantities of sugar and liquid. This is because wheat flour absorbs more liquid. Similarly, I have seen that more sugar goes with wheat flour.

 

Does Your Mug Cake Become Chewy or Rubbery?

Since mug cakes are made in microwave oven in just 1 minute so many times people avoid making these as the mug cakes turn rubbery due to heat of the microwave. To avoid this problem, there is a simple solution. Just sprinkle a few drops of water before putting the mug in the microwave. Do not mix these drops. Just sprinkle and keep it in the microwave. This water will evaporate in 1 minute but will prevent your mug cakes from getting rubbery.

Variation

  1. Energy Mug Cake

Make this cake, even more, healthier by using any energy powder instead of cocoa powder. Like, I used, Bournvita. Everything remains the same, just the quantity of jaggery powder gets reduced to 3 tbsp as Bournvita is sweet.

2. Vanilla Mug Cake

Omit cocoa powder and make it vanilla cake. In that case, add 1/4 tsp of vanilla essence also and reduce the quantity of milk by 1 tablespoon. But vanilla mug cake will remain white only from the top and will not get brown. Though it will be perfectly baked but will look as if not baked. So, be prepared for this. To avoid this feeling you may put choco chips or chopped nuts or sugar sprinkles etc on top before putting the cake in the microwave.

 

FAQs

Q) Can I bake this cake in Otg or cooker? 

Of course, you can. But making just one mug cake in Otg or cooker will take a minimum 15 to 20 minutes and thus seems a waste of energy as well as time. But still, if you wish to do so then my suggestion is that you bake at least 3 to 4 mug cakes at a time and then bake. 

Q) What can jaggery be replaced with?

Use any sweetener of your choice but ensure that it’s in a powdered form otherwise it will not dissolve fully once the cake is baked.

Q) My cake is under or over baked in 1 minute, why?

As each microwave is different so please be careful with the time. If left more in the microwave,  even for 30 seconds more, it may turn rock hard. So keep checking 1 minute onwards.

Q) Is preheating microwave not required in this recipe?

No! Preheating is not required. Just open the door of the microwave oven, put the mug with the batter and start it for 1 minute. That’s it!

Q) Why does my Mug Cake become chewy or rubbery?

 Mug cakes turn rubbery due to the heat of the microwave. To avoid this problem, just sprinkle a few drops of water before putting the mug in the microwave. Do not mix these drops. Just sprinkle and keep it in the microwave. This water will evaporate in 1 minute but will prevent your mug cakes from getting rubbery.

  • Keep the mug in the microwave for 1 minute, at 100% power. Do not use the convection mode.

    Notes

    1. Be careful with the time. If left more in the microwave, even for 30 seconds more, it may turn rock hard. So keep checking 1 minute onwards.
    2. As you increase the number of mugs in the microwave, increase time marginally.
    3. You can use brown sugar or refined sugar in place of jaggery. If you use that then first powder it otherwise the sugar will not dissolve in 1 minute and it will affect the taste of the mug cake.
    4. You can make this with all-purpose flour too. In that case, reduce jaggery powder to 3 tablespoons and take milk also 4 tbsp only.
    5. No baking soda is needed in this mug cake hence not added.
    6. Preheating is not required. Just open the door of the microwave oven, put the mug with the batter and start it for 1 minute. That's it!

    1. Hi.. I m new to baking and was goin thro this recipe . i was under the impression that for baking convection mode is used. But i saw in the recipe not to use this mode.. Can you plz clarify on what mode is to be used for cakes n cookies in a concection microwave oven ?

      1. Hi Ahasthiya, you are absolutely right. Cakes n cookies are baked in convection mode only. This is because in convection mode the microwave acts just like an otg.
        But this recipe is just a 2 min recipe (as the quantity is just one mug only) and is done in the microwave in cooking mode only. This is to curb instant cravings for cake.
        I have one more recipe of cake in microwave which takes 5 min only.

    2. Tried it yesterday and was very yummy. I loved the texture. I’ve been searching for a recipe which is healthy and also doesn’t require chocolate chips ( as that’s is what is used in every recipe out there ) and finally saw ur recipe. This is a great recipe that doesn’t require additional ingredients, it calls for everything available in the house , so that’s wonderful. Thank you for the recipe!! 😊
