Strawberry - dark chocolate chunk mug cake (eggfree)

I have been wanting to try a mug cake for ages now, the most popular one in the blogging world is a nutella mug cake- that's still on the to-bake list!But i tried something was good enough :) And it is a microwave 2 min cake!

This cake is egg-free and i tried to make it vegan but had to make alterations and so it contains yogurt.I have used ground flaxseed as an egg substitute.That was a first time as well.When i came here to my mom's she told me how she started using flaxseeds in her daily porridges and its good.Since i had already seen many vegan recipes over the internet i was keen to use it.I had many inhibitions like would the flaxseed actually work like egg, will it make the cake smell weird.But these were all proven wrong.

For the mug cake you need 2 good quality mugs first of all :) we don't want explosions or accidents in the microwave....yes it is a microwave 2 minute cake.

You need

Wheat flour/All purpose flour 4 tablespoons
Sugar(powdered) 4 tablespoons
Whisked egg 2T/ flaxseed powder 1/2 tablespoon mixed in 1 tablespoon of water
Milk 3 tablespoon or more to make the batter loose
Oil 3 tablespoon
Dark chocolate chunks 3 tablespoon
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Flavored yogurt 3 tablespoon
Candied strawberry 2 tablespoon
Baking soda 1/2 tsp

  • Grease the mugs you are going to use and keep aside.
  • Mix wheat flour, baking soda, sugar powder in a bowl.
  • Mix milk, oil,yogurt, flax seed + water mix, in another bowl with vanilla essence.
  • Mix both wet and dry ingredients to make a smooth mix.
  • Add strawberry chunks and chocolate chunks and mix into batter.
  • Divide the batter into 2 mugs.
  • Cook the cakes in the microwave oven for 2 minutes on high power.

  • Enjoy hot mug cake :)


- I used flaxseed powder just to see how it works and i didn;t find anything wrong with it.
- Since i used wheat flour i had to add extra yogurt to mix the flour in.
- i used passionfruit flavored yogurt but any flavor will work and you can skip the essence too.
- Microwave the cake for 2 mins first and then allow to cool it will set well even if its wet when you turn it off.
