My 178th recipe, “Eggless Strawberry Vanilla Cake in a Cup”, a easy way to start your day. There are some mornings, especially on weekends, I do not have the patience to spend a long time in my kitchen preparing an elaborate breakfast. Since I would always be hungry by the time I wake up, Quick fix breakfasts are what I love to make on such occasions.
While there are different kinds of dishes you may prepare, nothing can be more fun and interesting than making a cake in a cup. It is a very cute, hassle-free and non messy way of preparing and I absolutely love it. I do not have to pre heat my oven or stand near my stove top. This mug cake is as simple as throwing a few basic ingredients from your pantry and then nuking it for a couple of minutes. viola, you have a delicious cake ready.
This Eggless Strawberry Vanilla cake, is one among my most favorite of mug cakes. It is very light, soft, spongy with a wonderful vanilla flavor. But, it doesn’t use any egg for rising which is an absolute plus for me. Also, the fresh strawberries keeps the whole cake moist and adds a delicate natural sweetness. Probably the best way to make your kids eat some fruit 🙂 And, if you are of the adventurous kind, top off the mug cake with some chocolate syrup or whipped cream and you can turn it into a decadent dessert 😉
Eggless Strawberry Vanilla Cake in a Cup
Eggless Strawberry Vanilla Cake in a Cup is a soft, light and super delicious cake that can be made in your microwave in less than 5 mins.
- All purpose flour - 1/4 Cup + 1 tsp
- Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
- Sugar - 2 Tbsp
- Salt a tiny pinch
- Milk - 1/4 Cup
- Oil - 1 Tbsp (*Flavorless like Canola Oil)
- Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
- Fresh strawberry - 1
First mix all the dry ingredients (Flour, baking powder, sugar, salt) in a bowl.
Add the milk, oil, vanilla extract to the dry ingredients and mix nicely until there are no lumps.
Finely chop up the strawberry. Add the chopped strawberries into the cup and fold it in.
Pour the mixture in a microwave oven safe cup. Fill only 3/4 of the cup, the cake needs some space to rise.Microwave it for 1 min - 2 mins.
Enjoy hot or cool, optionally topping it with chopped fresh strawberries.
- Since each microwave is different and the size of cup you might use as well. So the time to microwave could vary and can be anywhere from 1 minute to 2 minutes. Keep looking constantly and turn off the microwave as soon as you feel the cake is done. For me it took around 1 min 30 secs.
- Do not microwave for more time than needed. Your cake will become dry.
