Vanilla mug cake recipe

Its been a long time I shared an eggless mug cake recipe in microwave. After trying some one minute & 5 minute cake successfully, Iam much more comfortable & confident in trying out recipes like this. Its my long time wish to try out one minute vanilla cake as it is my most favourite flavour. I have been searching for the same and I finally found it here. It came out super soft and spongy with a lovely vanilla flavor. Try this easy cake recipe for your kids during this summer vacation. It is going to be an instant hit in your family. Let me know your feedback ! 

Note: You should consume the cake immediately after baking because the bottom of cake may turn slightly chewy due to the heat of the bowl. So please keep this in mind.

  • Salt – a small pinch

  • Now pour the batter into a microwave safe bowl. I used a porcelain/ceramic mug. The size of mug should be at least double the size of batter. Microwave it in high power ( 800w) for 1 minute. Adjust the timings based on the power of your microwave.The batter will rise till the brim and again goes in. So don’t scare. It won’t spill.

  • Check with a tooth pick. If it comes out clean or with little crumbs, cake is done. If you find wet batter in the tooth pick, bake it for 10-15 seconds more. 
  • Serve it warm and enjoy !
Note : You should consume the cake immediately after baking else the bottom of cake may turn slightly chewy due to the heat of the mug. If you don’t want to consume immediately, transfer the cake to another bowl and use it later.


  • Make sure sugar is melted completely before you bake. So mix well for 2-3 minutes.
  • U can use powdered sugar but I am not sure with measurements.
  • U should consume the cake immediately to enjoy its best taste.

Kalyani Sakhare said...

Is any specific mode of microwave is used... Or just put on the way we heat the food??

Chitra said...

No, usual microwave mode used for reheating

Amrithaa said...

i tried this today, and used normal wheat flour instead of maida, and it came out like halwa. The usual baking action, formation of gluten fibre, and rising never happened. Used fresh baking powder. What's wrong?

Chitra said...

Sorry, I am not sure.Must be problem with baking powder or uneven heating inside oven.Try baking for some more time.

Luna Marcy said...
