What are Mug Cakes
We all have an idea of what mug cakes are. Basically, they are a cake made in a mug, often cooked in the microwave for one minute, or alternatively in the oven, for 8-10 minutes. They can be served either for breakfast or as a dessert. Some are healthy and others are more indulgent… and some can make the list of quick and cheap chocolate desserts.
How to Make Mug Cakes
Mug cakes are made with an egg or an egg substitute, such as mashed bananas or apple sauce. But most of all, flour is a frequent ingredient (any type: almond, coconut, all-purpose, whole wheat, and so on) because it provides sructure and shape, especially when mug cakes are cooked at high temperatures in the microwave. They puff up, have more a regular cake structure, yet tend to be more on the dry side. Gluten-free mug cakes are mainly in this category unless they are flourless.
On the other hand, flourless mug cakes tend to have a fudgy consistency, but less of a cake structure. The major benefit of flourless or gluten-free mug cakes is they help eliminate the excess of gas and bloating in those that are celiac.
Well, despite their structure, consistency, or even health benefits, they all serve a purpose: feeding hungry bellies in a jiffy and satisfying cravings without the guilt.
