Thanks to Stacey J. Miller for sharing this recipe from her cookbook: 101 Recipes for Microwave Mug Cakes, published 2009 by BPT Press, Randolph MA.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Total Time: 9 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut

Preparation:

Prepare microwavable 16-ounce mug by coating the inside lightly with cooking spray.

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl. Beat egg first with a spoon and mix in other liquid ingredients. Then add dry ingredients and mix until you've removed all the lumps.

Pour the batter into the mug(don not fill more than halfway) and smoother top with a spoon. Thump mug firmly on the tabletop six times to remove excess air bubbles. Place mug on top of a microwavable small plate or saucer.

Bake for 3 - 4 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the microwave mug cake and removing the toothpick. If the toothpick is dry, the Microwave Mug Cake is done.

Wait 2 minutes, then run a butter knife along the inside the mug, and tip the cake into the plate. Position the mug cake so that the slightly rounded top is on top. Your microwave mug cake will now look like a slightly overgrown muffin.
