There is no egg in this recipe and believe me you don’t need one. You will still end up with a moist and fluffy cake which is healthy and vegan-friendly.

Prepare the batter and pour in a microwavable mug. Fill the mug 2/3 cup with batter and cook. This cake take 90 seconds to cook. But all microwaves vary in strength, so cooking time may vary. Cook until the inserted toothpick comes out clean.

You may see a streak of blue juice on the toothpick along with some cake crumbs – no worries. You cake is cooked, its just the juice oozing out of the yummy blueberries. But if you notice a sticky batter on the toothpick, cook the cake for another 20-30 seconds.

    I tried this recipe but it was overflowing..any idea why??

    • Ruchi says:

      If the cup was filled more than 2/3 than the batter will start to overflow.

      • Shilpa Agarwal says:

        No..that was taken care of..instead it was very less ..anything else that matters?😩

        • Shilpa Agarwal says:

          I used pinch of baking powder too and cake flour…can that be the reason ??

          • Ruchi says:

            Yes that’s the reason.
            Both baking powder and baking soda are leavening agents that cause cakes to rise during baking. Since this a mug cake, we don’t want it to rise much therefore 1 leavening agent was good.
            baked.
