Mug cakes are a really easy concept. They are just regular cakes with the ingredients cut down to serve one. They are usually made in a bowl or a mug, hence the name mug cake. The kicker is that they are microwaved and not baked, saving on time.
Mug cakes usually consist of flour, baking powder, milk, salt, egg and flavoring. You can really doctor it up to create what ever flavor you’d like. Want a chocolate mug cake? Then add some cocoa powder! Peanut butter mug cake? Just add a little bit of peanut butter to the batter. The possibilities are ENDLESS.
HOW LONG DO YOU COOK A MUG CAKE?
These little desserts are made in under 2 minutes. I mean how can you not like having a whole “slice” of cake that is homemade and done in that time? I think that the reality behind it is the convenience and ease, and that is what we as humans kinda crave. At least that’s what I crave.
CAN YOU MAKE A MUG CAKE IN AN OVEN?
Generally mugs are made of ceramic and porcelain and are oven safe if you really don’t want to make this in a microwave. You can preheat your oven to 350 and bake for about 15-20 minutes, checking after 15 for doneness in the center by using a toothpick to see if it comes out clean.
So if single serving desserts are what you crave than this Chocolate Chip Banana Mug Cake is your next go-to late night treat that won’t disappoint! Top it with some whipped cream, chocolate chips and bananas and you have yourself an easy peasy delicious treat!
