A personal cake can be made in a coffee mug. This page contains coffee mug cake recipes.
This is the best tasting mug cake ever! I'm very sensitive to mug cakes, mostly because they never taste like cake. They usually have an odd, goopy texture and smell weird. This one is my favourite by far, and it only has 3 ingredients and takes two minutes in the microwave!
Approximate Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
Time was running out so I gathered all the ingredients, and made up pouches to go into mugs I had bought at a local salvage yard really cheap. I added the recipe tag and gave each girl a mug with a Christmas theme on it for a gift. I added some cute Christmas themed clip art to the tag and some darling curling ribbon bows.
This is probably the cheapest gift I have ever given anyone. I got lots of wonderful comments on it. If you would like to try it, here is the recipe and the tag to add to it.
On a tag add the following: To this mixture add one egg, 3 tablespoons milk, and 3 tablespoons oil. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy.

Now you can have chocolate cake any time of the day in only 5 minutes. You're welcome! : )
Mix dry ingredients first in a med/large coffee mug, then add the wet ones. Microwave for 3 minutes in a 1000 watt nuker. Instant and easy 5 minute chocolate cake!
I am not a cake connoisseur but this is tasty and definitely quick and also thrifty because you don't have to bake an entire cake (which might not all be eaten before spoiling) to fulfill a craving. If you like small portions, it's good for two servings.
I've lost the recipe for the coffee cup cake. Please help me find it again.

Diet Alfredo Sauce using a quart of fat free half and half. Thicken fat free half and halfwith cornstarch by placing 2 heaping Tbsp. of cornstarch in 1 cup cold fat free half and half and stir thoroughly. When the remainder of the fat free half and half comes to a slow boil on the stove, add the cornstarch mixture. It will thicken. Next add 1 cup of your favorite Parmesan cheese, 8 oz. of fat free cream cheese and garlic powder and salt to taste.
Mix ingredients in mug and bake in microwave for 3 minutes. To make a pudding, add Whiskey/Brandy/Liquor to pudding when taken out of oven and add a dollop of cream.
I found this new recipe which is not probaby new to you guys, but it is to me. It is the cup cake that you bake in the microwave, perfect for me. I tried it out today, and it was great!
I am looking fro the recipe for a 5 minute chocolate mug cake.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
Here's a sugar free version. I make it ALL the time as I can't have sugar. Of course not quite the same as the sugar'd version but for me, hey, tasted sooo good. I get so many recipes (including this one) off of a site called:
Shelly's 5 Minute Chocolate Protein Cake
Also, go to this link for some other Five Minute Chocolate Mug ideas/recipe variances :-)
This is much better with brown sugar instead of white and 3 Tbsp sultanas, and in my 1000W microwave It's only 2 minutes, 40 seconds (12/09/2009)
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil. Mix again well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed.
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. Eat. This makes a generous serving for two. If you're a chocoholic, watch out. With this recipe you are only five minutes away from a deliciously, decadent dessert.
Note: I sprayed the mug with a little Baker's Joy to insure its coming out more easily. I also think I'll add chopped nuts next time. My grandson and I made one tonight and it was scrumptious with some vanilla ice cream on the side.
Source: This recipe was given to me by a dear friend who has raised five children. I'm sure she has to be very creative with her cooking.

I make this in a Land O Lakes spreadable butter container. It is oblong and since it has a lid I can turn it out on a plate and slice it into four or five slices, take one and put the rest back into the tub for the next day. The lid keeps it moist and it is so yummy. Sure I could eat the whole thing at once and I have, but then it is no longer a treat. I need to use the tread mill twice as long to make up for the extra calories. (01/30/2009)
I changed the recipe and the cake doesn't boil over and comes out fluffier not gooey. I omitted the egg. I also used heaping Tablespoons of the cocoa. I've also added a dash of salt, and a spoonful of chopped nuts and a spoonful of mini chocolate chips.(2-3 Tbsp). I sprinkled it with powdered sugar before serving.
Use a 12 ounce mug, or near to that.
Edith, not all plastic containers are safely microwaveable. The #5 type are, but I don't think #1 or #2 are. (01/31/2009)
