Coffee Mug Cake


I love cakes but was too lazy to make them because of the wait,so I was  surprised and happy when I came across my first microwave recipe, getting a cake fixed in less than 1 minute seem like an impossible idea at first and that too in a cup is an added bonus. My first microwave cakes were, of course, chocolate ones, my sister love chocolate cakes esp self saucing type.(Note:- my attempt for self saucing always ended up like molten lava ones with a lot of syrup inside.)

The cook in me got curious after microwaving the chocolate batter for a long time and wanted to what all type of cakes I can make in microwave, and that how I stumbled up on Gemma Stafford’s site. There she introduce a lot of varieties of Microwave mug cakes and cookies and cheese cakes and what not.

My Coffee Mug Cake is an adaption of Gemma’s Coffee Cake 1 Minute Microwave Mug Cake :

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Flavorless oil
  • 2 tablespoons Milk
  • 4 tablespoons All purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Instant Coffee powder
  • 1 teaspoon Hot water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • a pinch Salt


  1. In a microwavable mug, Mix together the beaten egg ,milk,sugar and salt.
  2. Dissolve the coffee powder into the hot water, before adding it into the egg and milk mix.
  3. Mix the flour and baking powder together and add it to the coffee mix.
  4. Add oil to the mix and whisk it well to get rid of any lumps.
  5. Microwave for around 1 minute in high (the timing might vary depending upon the power of the microwave, 1 minute for a 1200 watt machine)

I had to substitute some of the ingredients Gemma used as they were not available in our locality, like Granulated coffee to instant coffee and brown sugar to white sugar etc.
