Eggless vanilla cake in microwave is moist, airy classic vanilla cake made in 2 minutes. I have to admit that this is the easiest and tastier cake recipe I have ever made.
Have you ever done dieting ? sorry I mean clean eating. I hate word dieting, I never diet. Just swap my food to high protein food. I cut back my sugar and use stevia as much as possible. I survive on 2 teaspoons of sugar each day which is consumed in my masala tea. I can’t imagine to live without my morning and evening tea. And sometimes, during these days I get a huge urge to eat something really sweet which can be quite a struggle.
These quick desserts like this ( cookie in a mug ) can come out as life saving at that time to satisfy my craving as well as to make sure that i don’t gain too many calories because there is no left over ?. I make it and share it with my 3 year old son (if stevia is not used).
In this recipe I have used combination of sugar and stevia to substitute sugar, you may ignore it and use sugar.
While making mug cakes, few things should be noted before trying.
Don’t fill any mug more than half. This is the golden rule of mug cake baking. If you stick to that, you will avoid overflow.
Microwave recipes for lesser time than its mentioned – Every one have different microwave timing so your timing may vary. Check the cake by carefully touching the top. It should be firm and springy, not at all doughy. If its not fully baked yet, put back in microwave.
Use self-rising flour – I have found success using self rising flour. It is available easily in market. But if you don’t find it, make it at home. Combine 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon fine salt.
