Yellow Cake in a Mug

Yellow Cake in a Mug

Introduction

Until now I've only seen chocolate cake in a mug recipes, and so I figured I'd put one up for those who just don't like chocolate. Also, this recipe can be modified and you can add in anything that you want to.

    It wasn't bad. I will say though, I'm sure the flavored ones taste better, because this one tasted a bit doughy. I don't think I would have been able to eat this if I wouldn't have put chocolate chips on top and let them melt into a "frosting." I like that it didn't require eggs. - 5/3/13

    Great recipe! I made a few substitutions. I used 1T coconut flour and 1T AP flour. I used only 1T of sugar and used vanilla almond milk. Definitely satisfied my craving! I was afraid the portion size was too small, but it was perfect. I added some Speculoos cookie spread and chocolate soy icecream. - 2/25/13

    I've made it once before, didn't have oil, used butter, and I think it was a little too much. Just made it again with coconut flour and coconut oil(another guess on the measuring) and almond milk, and it was really good. Buttery. Will make this way again1 - 2/17/13

    Tried this tonight, and it was very good. I added about a tsp of rainbow sprinkles just as an extra treat, and it turned out wonderfully. Helped with my cake craving without letting me go too overboard. - 11/7/12

  • Wow! Just made this and it was delicious. Following someone elses' example, I substituted butter pecan flavored coffee creamer for the milk. Also doubled the baking powder. I will make this again and again. - 9/26/13

  • Tried it with cinnamon sugar - overcooked it, was salty and not much taste...don't think it was the recipe as much as it was the cook. Gonna try it again without pam and only half the salt..microwaves all cook differently, it's gotta be in the timing. - 8/29/13

  • I didn't have milk so I used coffeemate french vanilla creamer and it was AMAZING! Mine was a bit spongy looking so I added a teaspoon of nutella and stirred it up a bit and was one of the best things I've had all day. Might add a bit more baking soda to make it rise more next time. - 8/20/13

  • This is a great recipe and a real craving buster! One could add many different twists to this recipe. I subbed the vanilla with almond extract and it was great. - 7/18/13

  • Loved it! I made two, one topped with strawberries and the other I made with coconut milk and topped with fresh coconut. They are pretty small so you really do want to double the recipe. I may even triple it and use a big mug. ;-) Oh and since there no egg, its really not yellow. - 7/18/13

  • This is amazing.. Really!! I didn't use Pam cause I mixed everything in the mug so as not to dirty an extra bowl and nothing came close to sticking. I also sprinkled about 1/2 Tbsp of cinnamon sugar on top. Delicious and SOOO fast and easy. Ingredients everyone has and no eggs! Brilliant :D - 7/8/13

    (herlerr still da same person)- wailed with warnings. Unfortunately ignoring these fateful warnings, I placed the spoon in my waiting mouth. This cake was the most abominable, repugnant, detestable, monstrous tasting cake I have ever laid into my poor dear mouth. I refuse to ever consume this recipe - 6/20/13

    (herlerr same person)- and irresistably stupendous fragrance. To my utter and complete dissapointment, it smelled like yesterday's dinners leftovers. Still hopeful, i placed my jeopardous mug in the microwave for 1 min and 15 sec. As I grasped my mug and cautiosly took a spoon to it, my taste buds - 6/20/13

    Hoping this recipe would fulfill my night cravings, I joyfully embarked on the quest to make it. But alas, this recipe is heinous and revolting. I could hardly contain the passion I had within me while incorporating the ingredients. I inhaled the scent of the batter expecting a fascinating - 6/20/13

  • Yummy! I substituted Splenda brown sugar blend, skim milk & only put 1/2 tbs oil, added a little extra vanilla & it was great. Really small serving though since its a 2 serving recipe. - 2/21/13

  • Really good, Pam was not needed,it didn't stick a bit. Very light,fluffy, and moist. As said by another user, it really only serves half a serving, it only filled half a mug. I will double the recipe and maybe lower the sugar to my liking next time. Lovely for a quick and easy snack, will make again - 9/28/12

  • I added the tsp of cocoa powder and used half Splenda for the sugar, it took 1 1/2min... it was awesome! I've tried a couple others from box mixes and this is WAY better! - 8/31/12

  • This little recipe is amazing! I did double it and used 2 TBS of butter instead of oil just because I prefer butter. I couldn't believe the texture and taste! I'm almost sorry I stumbled upon this recipe because it's going to be very difficult to not make this all the time as yellow cake is my fave! - 8/22/12
