Satisfy your sweet cravings with a quick MUG CAKE

Hey guys!! Hope everyone's enjoying autumn! I know days are turning boring and dull because of the weather and I myself have experienced that I'm turning lazy past a few days. Well, one reason for not being able to blog since a few days was this too! But hey, I can't stay away from what I love for long, so because you all repeatedly ask me to put up a food post, here I am with something sweet again, only for you!

Now, we all wake up in the morning, all tired and lazy but the first thing we look out for is our morning tea, coffee or chocolate milk! But what about the days when we are craving for a dessert at 5 am in the morning but we can't satisfy our taste buds because no one's got that much time or energy early in the morning to bake a cake! Oh wait, who said we can't do that? Now make your cakes at any hour of the day (or at midnight) and satisfy your sweet tooth craves! Today, I present you the very quick recipe of the very yummy mug cake! You won't believe, you can make it in just 5 minutes!



THINGS YOU NEED



1. Cake Mix [I've used TOPS brand (vanilla flavor) but you can use any]



2. Milk  |  3. Butter  |  4. Chocolate Spread/Nutella



5. Coffee Mugs (any shape & size)

6. Whisk  |  7. Spoons



DIRECTIONS TO PREPARE


First we'll make a Vanilla - Pineapple Cake.


Step 1. Add 4 table spoons of cake mix powder in the mug.



Step 2. Add 3 table spoons of full cream milk.



Step 3. Add 1 tea spoon butter.

The cake mix already contains standard amount of sugar so I did not add extra sugar to my cake.
In case you want your cake sweeter, you can add about 1 tea spoon of castor sugar.



 Step 4. Mix all the ingredients with the help of a whisk. Make sure to form no lumps!



Step 5. Add diced pineapple into the mixture.



Step 6. Put your mug filled with the cake batter in the microwave.

Bake it for 2 minutes 30 seconds. Watch the cake rise from the microwave door!



NOTE : Repeat steps from the above recipe from 1-4 and move further as shown below to make a Chocolate Cake


Step 5. Add 1 table spoon of chocolate spread instead of diced pineapple to make a chocolate cake. 



 Step 6. Mix all the ingredients with the help of a whisk. Make sure to form no lumps!



Step 7. Put your mug filled with the cake batter in the microwave.

Bake it for 2 minutes 30 seconds. Watch the cake rise from the microwave door!



Pull your mugs out, the cake should have risen in the mug and should have holes in the sponge
(as shown in the picture above).

Step 8. Check if its completely baked by poking a toothpick, if it comes out clean, your cake is ready!



Step 9. Garnish your vanilla pineapple cake with sliced pineapple and chocolate cake with melted chocolate/choco spread!



Enjoy your cake in the mug or transfer it into a bowl, its going to taste heaven!
