2-Min No Oil Mug Cake No Egg


mug cake eggless  with almond butter
Cake in a mug! Sounds interesting, isn;t it?

Mug cakes are loved by one and all. They are super quick and easy - ready within a couple of minutes, requiring a handful of ingredients. Doesn't that sound good to the ear?

I have never tried my hands at mug cake before. But I really wanted to give it a try. Yesterday was the lucky day!

This microwave mug cake recipe gets inspiration from Sangeeta Sethi ji. The moment I saw her whole wheat mug cake  eggless  recipe in a group, I was impressed!!  Unlike other cake recipes, mug cakes are quick and require no preheating the microwave or convection setting. This doubt was cleared by Sangeeta Chandra, a friend of mine.

Then I decided to just go for it. But since I had home-made almond butter, I did not want to add any other oil or butter.


So my cake in a mug recipe is simple, eggless, butterless, and so addictive! Yes, you have got me right.

What is Almond Butter


Almond butter is super healthy, rich in taste, and of course addictive.Try a recipe with almond butter once, and you cannot stop at experimenting with this healthy ingredient there. I, too, started using almond butter recently. The first time I actually made it at home was when I wanted to try the 2-ingredient nana ice cream. It was a super hit recipe with my friends. I got inspiring feedback from all corners. Yes, I was extremely happy with it.

Next time, I included almond butter in a cake along with oil. The almond butter eggless atta cake was loved by one and all. The aroma of an almond butter cake in a mug or pan makes it different from others. You do not need to add any flavoring agent or spice to add to its aroma! Doesn't that sound good?

Almond butter cookies with oatmeal was another of my trials with this buttery mixture sourced from roasted almonds. Even the almond butter recipe is simple and quick.

Here is how you can make almond butter at home.

homemade almond butter

  1. Clean almonds or wash them quickly.
  2. Dry roast them until they turn brownish.
  3. Let them cool.
  4. Next, take 1/4 tsp of olive oil or any other oil.
  5. Churn them up along with oil in a grinder.
  6. Keep processing unless you get the oil oozing from the mixture.
  7. You may add a hint of cinnamon to add to the flavor.
  8. This tastes so chocolaty that you will be tempted to savor almond butter at this stage.
  9. If you can control yourself, well and good. If not, then you will have to make another batch! Yes, this is seriously addictive!!! Boil almond butter in a glass of milk and it makes a delicious almond, chocolaty milkshake for kids and elders alike. You will thank me for this recipe!! Yay!

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
