Microwave Muffin In A Mug

This is a throwback post.

I had forgotten all about this fun activity we did with the girls (supervised by my mum) in Ipoh during the December school holidays last year until I saw the photos in my Google Photos album when I was browsing the album.

Busy mummies and daddies, you’ll love me for posting this up! 😉

If your kids love muffins and cup cakes but you can never  squeeze out the 1 hour to bake for your kids (I am seriously guilty of this!), fret not. All you need is probably 10 minutes or less to bake a muffin in a mug instantly! In the microwave! 😉

Only 10 – 15 minutes to whip up this yummy muffin! Perfect for hectic school mornings and tea-time.

Ingredients for Microwave mug cake:
4 tbsp self raising flour
4 tbsp caster sugar (you can reduce the amount if you wish)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 medium egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable/sunflower oil. You can substitute it with butter if you want a more buttery taste.
A few drops vanilla or other essence (orange, peppermint etc)
2 tbsp chocolate chips/nuts/raisins/fruits/Oreo, etc (optional)

Use the largest mug you have to avoid it overflowing in the microwave.
Add the flour, sugar and cocoa powder to the mug and mix.
Add the egg to the mixture. Mix in as much as you can but don’t worry if there’s still dry mix left.
Add all the other ingredients apart from the chocolate chips, etc (if you are adding) and mix until smooth. Add the chocolate chips and/or the nuts/raisins/fruits/Oreo and mix well.
Centre your mug in the middle of the microwave oven and cook on high for under 1 minute **, or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch.
Watch it rise as it cooks!

** It takes under a minute or 1+ minute to microwave bake the muffin depending on the voltage of the microwave oven. If the muffin is over-baked, then the texture becomes rubbery.

Happy trying! 😉
