If you are craving some sweet, why not try some cute, lovely mug cakes this winter? You can easily make mug cakes at home without needing an oven by steaming them only in a pressure cooker or saucepan.
Mug Cake Ingredients
3 tbsp plain refined flour. You can substitute this with ragi flour as well.
One egg (if you are a vegetarian, then you can omit egg)
One and ½ tbsp. cocoa powder, coffee powder
1/4th tbsp. baking powder
3 tbsp powdered sugar or substitute it with cane sugar
4 tbsp condensed milk
1/4th tbsp. vanilla essence
2 tbsp butter or oil or ghee
Add a tiny pinch of salt.
Mug Cake Recipe
Mix the following ingredients well in a bowl. Ensure that it forms a smooth paste without any lumps. You can add walnut, almonds if you wish. Then pour the batter into a cup. Fill only 3/4th of the cup, cover it with a foil or a lid. Add 1 cup of water to the saucepan, or you can also use a pressure cooker. Place the mug inside. Try to choose a mug that nicely fits into the vessel.
Cover the pan and cook in the steam for 15-20 minutes on a low flame. Remember to keep checking the water level intermittently to ensure that the water does not dry up. After 20 minutes, switch off the gas and let it rest for some time. Finally, when the temperature has cooled off a little, open the lid and check with a toothpick to see if the cake is ready.
That’s all your Mug Cake is ready to serve!
