eggless chocolate mug cake 1

Perfect for a 2 min cake in a microwave!! That too eggless!

2 Minute Eggless Mug Cake – Chocolate and Vanilla

4 tbsp all-purpose flour (measuring spoon)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
¼ tsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vegetable or canola oil
5 tbsp milk
1 tbsp nutella or peanut butter (optional)

You can either mix ingredients in the same cup but I prefer to mix separately in a bowl and pour batter into cups. I usually double the above to make 2-3 mug cakes. Microwave temperature varies so start on High with 2 mins but you will need max 1 min and 10 secs or 1 min 20secs. Don’t overcook as it will become dry.

Add flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl and mix with a fork.
Add oil and milk and mix until just combined.
Pour into a mug. Add a tbsp of nutella or peanut butter if using in the center and push it down.
Microwave as mentioned above.

For vanilla mug cake, replace cocoa powder in above with 1 tbsp extra flour and add ½ tsp vanilla essence.

A perfect microwave cake finally!!
I mean perfect in texture…from top to bottom, though I still feel 2 eggs to almost 1 cup flour is too much. I have tried quite a few microwave cakes and mostly the top part comes out spongy and the lower part gooey. This is a good recipe from my mother, ready in 4 minutes.
