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.

Coffee Flavored Mug Cake Procedure

  10. Cut into pieces and enjoy the super delicious coffee cake in a mug with no egg when you are craving for something sweet and want it urgently.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.
