1 Minute Microwave Eggless Chocolate Cake in Mug | Eggless Microwave Cakes | Step by Step Recipe

Sharing is caring!

It was 8 pm when I returned from office when I suddenly had this urge to bake a cake. Naturally it had to be an eggless one. And if it was to be quick it naturally had to be baked in Microwave. Some ages back I had baked in a coffee mug but never came around posting the recipe. I don’t remember it came out much like the buttery soft cake. Still it was good.
When this passion for baking got kindled again, I was in search of getting the perfect crumble, soft texture to my cakes, even those baked eggless and in Microwave. When I was chatting with Simmi, she enlighten me on how to get the perfect crumble, by adding cornflour. Wow it was so simple. I knew Cake flour was a flour with corn flour added, but never knew we can get around preparing it at home. Simmi suggested I add 1 tbsp of corn flour to 1 cup of All purpose Flour.



I have been experimenting with this combo to get the perfect texture. But before that my attempt to bake with my kids around really turned out to be a big hilarious adventure. First I combined everything off very quick while both the boys were pulling around to see what was going next. Luckily I just tasted it and it was really so bitter! I forgot to add sugar. I had already added it to the mug, so hurriedly removed and add the icing sugar. Baked it
Since I felt the first one may not have been right, I wanted to try a new batch, so mixed again. But this time after popping into the oven I realized I forgot to add the Baking Soda! Wow I was really jinked. I was not about to give up, so again blended another batch. It almost sounded like a never ending saga. I got out these cute cups that Raji gifted me when we met.
In my haste filled it more than needed and by 1 minute it over flew! Whatever the cake that remained at the bottom was very crumbly.

I made another batch in these cute small coffee cups.

Peddu and Chinnu enjoyed it very much. I was trilled to get a quick dessert in as short as 5 mins.

Hubby dear did say that it was very moist though I liked it very much. Maybe since it was baked in microwave mode it came out this way. I baked another version which was really very crumbly and moist still..up next!

  1. I just made it and it is such a blessing when a craving strikes. I did have some problems, I was hoping you could help.
    I could still taste a bit of flour in the cake..is that normal? or should I keep it on for more time?
    I used the dark cooking chocolate and I felt it needed more sugar..Should a dark chocolate need more sugar?

    Thanks so much for this awesome recipe.

  2. Thanks for the feedback Tejal. I am so glad you liked it. I think because we are doing it in microwave, we may still feel the flour at times. but try resting it a bit longer and check. Mine was good. Also do check for sweetness before popping it in, as few brands will be more bitter.

  3. Wow Valli!! Reaching home at 8 p.m n baking such lovely cakes…hats off to you. Will surely give it a try n i am sure it will suppress my niecé's sudden cravings at odd times and ofcourse mine too..
