3 EASY DIY MUG CAKES!


Hey guys, it’s Ro! It is still very cold outside, and I know
I live in Southern California where it isn’t the most cold in January. But the other day, it was 38 degrees, and
for me that is very chilly! And when it’s cold outside, I like to make
warm food, and warm treats, kinda make me feel cozy. So this weekend, I was thinking about making
a sweet treat, but I didn’t want to make an entire cake, I just wanted an individual
sized something. So I thought, let’s make some mug cakes, and let me make a video because I thought this is a really cool idea. You bake the cake in the microwave, so it’s
super easy, and, you make them in a coffee mug. The 3 recipes that we’re gonna be making
are a double chocolate, a spiced apple, and espresso. These are my favorite mug cake recipes, so
I hope you guys enjoy them, and I wanted to give you some variations in case… I don’t know you didn’t like chocolate… Or you didn’t like apple… Or you didn’t like espresso!? Huuhhhh! There’s other options. Alright, let’s get started, the first recipe
that we’re gonna be making is the double chocolate. The things you’ll need to make this double
chocolate mug cake will be: 1/4 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of self rising flour, 1 egg at room
temperature, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1/4 cup of mini, semi-sweet chocolate chips,
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, yum-yum-yum! 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder,
1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and your favorite microwave safe
mug. Then for decoration I’m gonna be using a
little bit of powdered sugar, and a small sifter. First thing that we’re gonna do in a small bowl,
we’re gonna whisk together our dry ingredients. Self rising flour, cocoa powder, granulated
sugar, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whisk together until well combined. Once it’s whisked, we will add our wet ingredients,
milk, melted butter, vanilla extract and an egg. And, a side note, this chocolate recipe makes
2 mug cakes in a 10 ounce coffee mug. This cake batter is almost ready, we have
one more thing to add, chocolate chips, this makes it a double chocolate cake! Not just a chocolate cake… it’s gonna
be a double chocolate cake! Sprinkle in your chocolate chips and gently
mix them together. What’s over here? 3 have gone astray, oop-oop-oop! Mmm-mmm-mmm! Taste test… Tastes, tastes good, tastes like chocolate! Now the batter is ready, fill your coffee
mug 1/2 way full, don’t over-fill it because they do rise a lot when they bake. Our mug cakes are ready for the microwave,
I like to microwave them one at a time so I can keep my eye on them. I put these on high in the microwave for 1
minute. That’s what works for me, but, every microwave
is different so after a minute just check your cake, if it hasn’t set yet, microwave
again for an additional 10 seconds, and check. I would just keep doing it in 10 second intervals,
checking your cake each time. Da-dew! Here are our double chocolate mug cakes, I
just took them out of the microwave, they are still a little bit hot, so be careful. For a final touch I like to decorate and top
them with a little bit of powdered sugar. Using a small sieve, just a little sprinkle. Oh yes! The next cake that we’re gonna be making
is a Spiced Apple. The things you will need to make this Spiced
Apple Mug Cake will be: 1/4 cup of self rising flour, 3 tablespoons of applesauce, an apple,
I’m using a golden delicious, but you can use whatever one you’d like. 1 tablespoon of milk, 1 teaspoon of granulated
sugar, a pinch of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of ground sugar, 1/4
teaspoon of allspice and a small coffee mug, I’m using 1 that’s 6 ounces. Then for decoration I’m using ground cinnamon
and some cinnamon sticks. First step to making this cake is to prepare
our apple, we’re gonna peel and cut it into 1/2 an inch cubes. Cut off the top and bottom, then peel off
the sides, using the vegetable peeler. Then, 4 cuts around the core, then cut into
small cubes. This recipe doesn’t use the full apple,
I’ve got my extra apple slices over here that I’m just gonna eat as a snack. And then in this small bowl, scoop 2 tablespoons
of cubed apple in here. Now, whisk together your dry ingredients. An important side note, you want to make sure
that you are using self rising flour, not regular flour! Self rising flour helps these cakes cook correctly
in the microwave. Allspice and cinnamon, regular granulated
sugar….. Oooh! Brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Then whisk together until well combined. Next we’re gonna add applesauce and milk
and whisk together until everything’s nice and smooth. Add in your cubed apples to the batter. 🎶 I believe I can Fly! 🎶 And stir together! Fun fact, I’m from Washington. Which, we got a lot of apples in Washington,
Molly and I growing up, we had an apple tree in our backyard. You forgot we had an apple tree? Wow… OK… Now scoop your batter into the mug, and again,
it should be about 1/2 way full. This Apple Spice recipe makes 1 mug cake, and
I’m gonna be using a 6 ounce mug, and it’s because this batter doesn’t rise as much,
so it’s the perfect amount. Mmmmm! It smells so good, this Apple Spice cake is
ready to Microwave, again, we’re just gonna pop it in for 1 minute. Our cake is hot and fresh out of the microvave
so be careful, I’m just gonna top it with a little bit of cinnamon, and a cinnamon stick! Da-dew! And there we have it, our Spiced Apple Mug
Cake, you guys this smells so good, this may be my favorite recipe of the day. The last cake that we’re gonna be making
is our espresso cake recipe. The things you will need to make the Espresso
Mug cake will be: 2 tablespoons of liquid coconut oil, 5 tablespoons of self rising
flour, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of instant espresso powder,
1 egg at room temperature, 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and a pinch
of salt. Then to decorate, we’re gonna be using whipped
cream, espresso beans, a microwave safe coffee mug, and a decorating bag, fitted with a #809
tip. As you guys know, I love espresso, it is so
good! And if you love espresso, this is the recipe
for you because this cake has a very strong taste, you really taste the espresso, it’s
delicious! The first thing that we’re gonna do is whisk
together our dry ingredients, starting with our self rising flour. instant espresso powder, and if you don’t
have espresso powder at home you can also use instant coffee powder, brown sugar
and granulated sugar and a pinch of salt. Whisk together until well combined. Oh that smells good! Then do some baking deep breath yoga, you
go like this… You smell a lot of baked goods and you hold
it in and you think happy thoughts! Oh yeah, and then you…. Let it out… Into downward dog. After you’ve mixed together your dry ingredients,
add your wet ingredients. 1 egg, our milk…. These countertops are really slick and shiny,
and they’re also a little louder, so I apologize. I’m sorry sound. And coconut oil. Then whisk together until nice and smooth. Oh, oops! Also mix it in your bowl. Oh my gosh this smells so good! From an espresso lover to another just smell… It just… Oh my gosh! I just want to drink this! This smells like heaven! Our batter is ready and it’s time to bake
our last cakes. I’m gonna divide the batter into both of
these mugs, this recipe makes 2 Espresso Mug Cakes in the 10 ounce coffee mug. I’m gonna put these in the microwave 1 at
a time on high, for 1 minute. This smells so good. Our Espresso Cakes are hot out of the microwave,
I gave them a little bit of time to cool before we decorate because you don’t want to pipe
whipped cream directly on there when it’s super hot because the whipped cream will just
melt… Well, that would taste pretty good, but to
make it look a little cuter I waited a few minutes. I scooped a little bit of whipped cream into
this bag with a tip at the end, it’s a number 809. I’m just gonna pipe a little dollop of whipped
cream at the top, huh, just to taste! And place a coffee bean on top. I gotta pick the prettiest bean, I feel like
this is it… Oh jeez! Boop! Ah! Yes! Ta-da! Here are the 3 mug cakes that we made today,
we made: Double Chocolate Cake, Spiced Apple and Espresso Cake. I absolutely love these recipes, I really
encourage you guys to try these, they are delicious, they are super easy to make, and
they’re single serving size. So if you want something warm at the end of
