How Do Mug Cakes Work?
Great question! If you’ve never made a mug cake recipe before, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. Mug cakes are single-serve cake recipes that you make in a microwave-safe mug and cook in your microwave instead of the oven. It’s that simple! You mix all the ingredients together in the mug, pop it in the microwave until it’s cooked through, top with your favorite toppings, and enjoy!
Are Mug Cakes Safe to Eat?
Yes! Mug cakes are safe to eat as long as you microwave them long enough to thoroughly cook the flour and any egg that may be in the recipe. This mug cake recipe is 100% vegan, so eggs aren’t a concern, but you will want to make sure you cook it thoroughly because raw flour can be dangerous.
What Type of Mug To Use For a Mug Cake?
Choose a mug that meets two requirements: 1) It must be microwave-safe. It may say microwave-safe on the bottom of the mug, or you may recall the packaging saying so when you purchased it. 2) It must be large enough for all your ingredients plus some extra space to allow the cake to rise as it cooks. This mug cake recipe calls for a 12-ounce mug or larger. As long as it meets those two requirements, the possibilities are endless!
Can I Make Mug Cake In The Oven?
We suppose you could make a mug cake in the oven or toaster oven if your mug is oven-safe, but the fun of the mug cake is that there’s no need for the hassle of an oven! Pop it in the microwave for 3-ish minutes and dessert is ready. We’ve never met an oven that could top that.
What Toppings Can I Put On My Mug Cake?
Toppings are one of the best parts of the mug cake! We love topping our mug cakes with our favorite ice cream or Non-Dairy flavors (did you expect any less?). The warm cake softens the ice cream, and the cold ice cream cools the cake for a perfect dessert experience. Other great options are: whipped cream or vegan whipped topping, sprinkles, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, berries, chopped nuts, banana slices, or any other goodies you find in the cupboards!
