Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp milk divided into two equal parts
  • 1.5 tbsp any neutral oil
  • ½ tsp Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract or vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 0.75 tsp cream which is ½ of ½ tbsp

Capacity of the Mug used in the Vanilla Mug Cake Recipe

  • 360 ml Microwave safe Mug 1 - ½ US cups capacity


Prep the Dry Ingredients First

  • Sift all the Dry Ingredients with the help of a sieve. Transfer them to the microwave safe Mug and than whisk them really well with the help of a fork. This helps incorporate air and in turn makes the batter light and fluffy.

How to incorporate the Wet Ingredients?

  • Add all the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients along with 1 part milk which is 1.5 tbsp. Whisk well to mix well with the help of a fork. There should not be any lumps left. Beat really well. The texture of the cake depends a lot on how well you beat the batter.
  • Now, add the rest of the milk which is 1.5 tbsp. and mix well to incorporate it with the rest of the batter. You should a silky, smooth, lump free, light and fluffy batter now.

How to make Eggless Vanilla Mug Cake in Microwave?

  • Place the Microwave safe mug containing the batter on the roating glass disc of the microwave oven.
  • Cook for 1 or 2 mins depending on the watts of your Microwave Oven. It took me 1 min + 50 seconds and I own a 1000 watts microwave oven.
  • Insert a tooth pick inside the cake and check it's doneness. If the tooth pick comes out clean the cake is well done. Otherwise cook for a few seconds.
  • Enjoy it as such or go wild and add some cream, frosting, chocolate sauce, or sprikles and enjoy the 2 min Microwave Vanilla Mug Cake.

  2. COOK TIME in a 1000 Watts MICROWAVE = 1 min + 50 seconds.
  3. Want to make the Vanilla Mug Cake with Butter? Replace the oil with the same amount of melt butter. Do not add hot melted butter to the dry ingredients. Allow it to cool down.
  4. What kind of milk to use? Use any kind - whole, 1%, 2% or fat free milk.
  5. Best oils for Vanilla Mug Cake: Any neutral oils work just fine. Our pick is coconut oil or canola oil.
  6. Vegan Option: Replace the milk with almond or soy milk.
  7. If you don't have Vinegar use the same amount of lemon juice. DO NOT skip it, it makes the cake very soft.
  8. Why sift the dry ingredients: Makes the cake very light and airy.
  9. Why whisk the dry ingredients first? Makes the batter light and the cake soft.
  10. Lump Free Batter Hack: Add the milk in two parts. This will guarantee a smooth, silky & lump free batter always.

  13. STORING TIPS: You won't be left with any leftover but just in case you do, just wrap the cup with an aluminum foil or cling wrap and store it in the fridge. Keeps good for 7 days. or for 2 days on the counter top at room temperature.
