Using a large microwave safe mug, spray the inside with non-stick cooking spray.

Next, mix the first 5 dry ingredients in the mug. After mixing well, make 3 depressions in dry ingredients.

Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla in the other and the vegetable oil in third depression. Pour water over top. Mix well until smooth using a fork.

Place in microwave and cook on high for *2 minutes, uncovered. Check with toothpick to make sure it comes out clean. Be sure not to over cook!

Top with whatever you like - powdered sugar, frosting, chocolate chips, caramel or whipped cream! Enjoy hot or cold!


Each microwave cooks differently, adjust time accordingly! One person made the cake in 1 minute 40 seconds, and another in 1 minute 20 seconds. If you overcook the cake, it may ruin it. Be sure to watch as it bakes.

If you want a neater mug cake, mix the cake batter in a small bowl, then pour the batter in the mug.

You can add mini chocolate chips to the batter for a super rich chocolate cake...or do what I did, throw some on top after you make it, while it's still warm! Mmm, mmm good!
