3-Min Coffee Cake in Mug No Egg

Cake in a mug? Are you kidding me? This was my reaction a year back! But the world of food and baking is vast. It's like a huge ocean, which is filled with endless treasures.

Here, treasures are the recipes that tantalize taste buds and give you something to relish and remember!

Mug cakes are such a breeze. I never knew this until a year back. But then I never had the confidence to try these quick cakes.

Now the time was ripe enough for me to give this microwave mug cake a try after I tried no oil, no butter cake in a mug, getting inspiration from Sangeeta Sethi's eggless mug cake post.

I experimented with the ingredients and voila! The recipe was a hit.

Do check my almond butter microwave mug cake recipe, which is unique, healthy, and of course flavorful. It does not use oil or butter, nor refined flour. Rather, I have chosen the healthiest of ingredients to come up with a quick cake recipe. It gives me a soft, spongy cake.

Need I say it's such a breeze to make cakes in a mug?

Let's come back to this recipe of coffee cake in a mug.

Frankly I do not like coffee. I got a chance to taste cold coffee once when my former boss invited us for a meeting in Cafe Coffee Day and ended up serving us cold coffee. I cannot tell how difficult it was for me to gulp down that huge cup of coffee. Uuuuufffffff.

I badly wanted to run away from that coffee aroma spread in each nook and cranny of Cafe Coffee Day. Unfortunately, I could not!!!

Let's come back to the recipe. Now you must be wondering why I have added coffee to this cake when it is a big NO in my place. Well, I made the mug cake with coffee at Patiala - my parental home. My bhabhi and brother like the flavor of coffee, and I was guiding my sister in law how to make cake in a mug. But I tell you I did taste the cake and it did not disappoint me. Rather, my mom and dad, too, loved the cake, though they hardly eat cakes!!


Could I be happier?

The best thing about mug cakes is:

  • you can bake them in solo mode (no convection mode required)
  • you can experiment with ingredients of your choice
  • these are quick to make - 2-3 minutes and you are done
  • these are quickest cakes ever and never disappoint
  • you do not need fancy utensils - just a microwave-proof mug and that's it
  • you can even add all the mug cake ingredients together in the baking mug and fold them gently - no greasing required

Now the coffee cake in a mug no egg was such a hit that my bhabhi was on cloud 9, since she has been looking for quick cake recipes.

She tried the cake twice when I was there. But the cake would bake quickly and it would disappear at the same speed. So no clicks were possible.

Today, she tried the microwave mug cake again and sent me the pics. So I could share the same with you all. Happy me!

I am obsessed with these quickie mug cakes. I plan to bake these more often than the usual cakes.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
