Recently i bought few coffee mugs to add it to my collection. My microwave is broken, right now i am in my mom's place. So i am making use of her microwave and making a bunch of microwave mug cakes. Yesterday few relatives and their kids dropped by, so i made few microwave mug cakes for them and they devoured it in a second.
I am planning to do few more microwave cakes like banana, carrot soon. So far i made this one, chocolate cake and self saucing chocolate mug cake. This cake is maha's favourite cake, she loves vanilla cake and adorably calls it "nevilla" cake. I simply love the way she calls it and i can listen to it for hours.
I had many mug cakes recipe on my blog and everything is delicious on its own way. One of my favourite cake is Nutella Mug Cake and it is Yum. It is one of the most popular cake on my blog.
This cake would seriously become a addictive recipe. It is super delicious, it needs just basic ingredients to make which you have already in your pantry. You can top it with whipped cream, chocolate frosting, vanilla frosting or simply drizzle it with plain ol vanilla icing. You can check all my frosting recipes here.

Hi Aarthi, I tried this recipe on my first baking, unfortunately my cake turned out not spongy and bit hard, almost like idli consistency. Dint raise at all. I added all ingredients double the amount into a glass bowl and microwaved it for the same watt and same time. Can't figure out wat went wrong. Please guide me.
if you have doubled all the amount as you stated then you should have increased the time according to the quantity.
Can we use wheat flour instead of maida?
i tried this mug cake yesterday and it turned to be one of the best cakes ive ever backed. Can i double the quantity and bake in a glass mould

Hi tried the recipe, came out very hard 😓
