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.

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…
