Butterscotch mug cake in microwave

Here is an easy and yummy eggless Butterscotch mug cake in microwave under 2 minutes. Usually I make one minute mug cakes frequently for Raksha’s cake cravings. But I gave a break for baking during Corona. So after 2 to 3 years, here I am with an easy mug cake recipe. This can be prepared so easily and quickly. Just collect all the ingredients, mix in a microwave safe mug and microwave it for 1 to 2 minutes based on the power. Tada, Its ready ! It comes out so soft, fluffy and spongy. 

In my family, both Sendhil and Raksha loves Butterscotch flavor when it comes to cakes or ice cream. But I love Vanilla flavor the most. As I had already shared One minute eggless chocolate mug cake, Vanilla mug cake, Red velvet mug cake and a brownie recipe in a mug, I tried butterscotch flavor this time.

I referred few Youtube videos and came up with this recipe. If you don’t have a microwave oven, you can make this cake in a pressure cooker or a kadai and cook for 10 minutes. You can follow the same recipe and use Vanilla essence instead of butterscotch. 

Lets see how to make this no egg Butterscotch mug cake in a microwave under 2 minutes.
