How to Make Microwave Mug Cake is one of the newest, easiest, and most delicious ways to enjoy delicious hot chocolate and coffee without having to wait on a stove or on a countertop. A microwave mug cake is literally a cake that bakes in your microwave oven. So it’s easy to create and easy to clean up, plus it’s even easier to prepare and easier to bake in general! And no, you don’t even need a really fancy microwave. It usually takes about ten minutes just to prepare and only a minute to bake.
This super moist, delicious recipe is almost a miracle food. The secret is the flour. Flour is what gives this mug cake its super moist flavor. And luckily, all you really have to do to get it just right is mix the flour, sugar, and baking powder together until it forms a paste-like substance.
Another secret is to use a microwave-safe mug. This way, you can mix the batter without having to use a wooden spoon. Mix it slowly, using your hands till it reaches about 45 seconds, then turn the mixer on high and cook it for the remaining two minutes. This way, you ensure that your microwave-safe mug cakes cook fast and evenly.
If you want to add extra moistness to your cake, you can use shortening or butter. Start with about one tablespoon of each and mix with the dry ingredients. Don’t forget to stir well! Once everything is mixed well, fold in half and pop into your microwave oven. Once your 1-minute mug cakes are fully cooked, they’ll be delicious and absolutely steamy!
