Spiced Honey Mug Cake

Mug cake seems to be the say of the day. Yes, it is absolutely convenient. You crave for something sweet and you don't want to share it - mug cake is the way forward! It can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes and dumped down even faster into your system! This mug cake was made sometime back when I was really craving to bake something, yet didn't have much time in hand. You cannot say that you are baking a mug cake, you are actually microwaving it - both make quite a lot of difference! However, the final product being a cake, the satisfaction received is somewhat at par. Even though I would prefer at any point of time, to go through the whole procedure and wait for the beauties to come out of the oven done... :)

Spiced Honey Mug Cake
Serves 2 limited eaters or 1 greedy eater!
Recipe adapted from here


1/4 cup flour + 2 tbsp
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp honey
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil (I used canola oil)
1/4 tsp baking powder
A pinch salt
A pinch vanilla essence
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1/8 tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp chocolate chips


Dump all the ingredients one after the other into a large ramekin and whisk until well incorporated. Microwave it on high for 2-3 minutes. (Mine is a 1000w microwave and was done in 2 minutes). Sprinkle brown sugar or icing sugar on top and dig in!!!

1. Adjust sugar and honey as per your sweetness.
2. Spices are upto you. As you can see in the recipe, cloves and nutmeg can be added. Since I dont like cloves and I didn't have nutmeg, I went for whatever I had in my pantry.
