2 Mug Cake Recipes by @Donna_Fasano

Sometimes I feel like treating myself to a sweet snack, but I don’t want to heat up the house by turning on the oven. Here are two recipes for mug cake that will take about two minutes to mix up and a minute and a half to “bake” in the microwave. I have tried them both (hey, someone had to be the Guinea pig!) and they’re both delicious.

Mug Cake Recipes

 

Chocolate Mug Cake

Cake:

  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping:

  • 1 heaping tablespoon chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Measure flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt into a 14-ounce microwave-safe mug, then stir so that the dry ingredients are combined.
  2. Add milk, oil, and vanilla. Stir until all ingredients are completely incorporated.
  3. Cook in microwave on high for 1 and a half minutes (90 seconds). Overcooking will result in a dry cake. Do not overcook.
  4. Remove from microwave and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top in a single layer. Allow cake to sit for 2 to 3 minutes.

 

Vanilla Mug Cake

Cake:

  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping:

  • 1 heaping tablespoon shredded coconut

Directions:

  1. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a 14-ounce microwave-safe mug, then stir so that the dry ingredients are combined.
  2. Add milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir until all ingredients are completely incorporated.
  3. Cook in microwave on high for 1 and a half minutes (90 seconds). Overcooking will result in a dry cake. Do not overcook.
  4. Remove from microwave and sprinkle coconut over the top in a single layer. Allow cake to sit for 2 to 3 minutes.

 

When it comes to toppings, use your imagination. In other words, if you don’t like coconut, you can substitute all sorts of things. The sky is the limit! Topping suggestions:

  • hazelnut chocolate spread
  • peanut butter sweetened with a drizzle of honey
  • jarred caramel sauce
  • jarred fudge sauce
  • strawberry jam

This month, I’m offering WILD HEARTS OF SUMMER for 99¢. That’s a $3 savings off the regular price of the ebook. This is Cathy and Brad’s story. Brad’s been chasing Cathy, but she simply refuses to be caught. A tragic accident forces her to rethink all her ideas about love. This is book 3 of my Ocean City Boardwalk series.
