How to make a mug cake | Microwave Mug Cake Recipe (no eggs, 3 ingredients)


Welcome back to In the Kitchen with Matt,
I am your host Matt Taylor. Today I will show you how to make a mug cake
or a bowl cake. Mug cakes are really easy to do, takes about
2 minutes and only 3 ingredients. Awesome! Have you ever had the urge to eat cake, but
you didn’t want to make a whole cake, because you didn’t want to be tempted to eat a lot
of it, or didn’t want part of it to go bad, because you couldn’t get to it. Where here you go, make a mug cake. It’s really easy to do, all cooked in the
microwave, let’s get started. We start with our cake mix, you can use whatever
cake mix you want, and I am using a chocolate cake mix. And we are going to use 3 tablespoons of cake
mix, 2 tablespoons of water, and 1 teaspoon of canola oil or vegetable oil. Give that a good mix, ok so you mix it so
it is nice and done like that. Okay now I am going to do the one for the
mug. Now the mug, I am going to add more to this
one, so I am going to do, I am going to double the recipe. So 6 tablespoons or a quarter cup plus two
tablespoons of cake mix. Okay. 4 tablespoons or a quarter cup of water, then
2 tsps. of canola oil or vegetable oil, take a fork and we will give it a good mix. And you can spray these with kitchen spray
if you want, the inside, but it is not completely necessary. But you can if you want. All right once they are nice and mixed, all
we do is put them in the microwave. The bowl goes in for a minute, on high for
a minute, the cup goes in for about a minute and a half to a minute 45 seconds. And the way you tell when it is done is push
a toothpick in there, and make sure it comes out clean. All right on to the microwave. All right when they come out of the microwave
they will look like this. And now you put whatever toppings you want
on there. For this little bowl one, I am going to use
powdered sugar, like that. For my mug, I am going to take some frosting,
and put it in this bag that I have a little tip on it, and I am going to just go ahead
and put some frosting in the middle. And maybe I will even do some on the edges,
like if you want to hide the edges where it is pealing apart there. Just kind of go around the edge. And I am going to put some sprinkles on there. There you go, fantastic. And that is how you make a mug cake or bowl
cake. Really easy to do, 3 simple ingredients, took
two minutes, cooked in the microwave, awesome. If I can do it, you can do it. I am Matt Taylor; this has been another episode
