2-minute Carrot mug cake with vanilla yogurt icing

I love mug cakes, for the fact that they are easy to make and this recipe is extra special because it is low in fat! That sounds interesting right?! The entire preparation and baking can be completed within 15 minutes. So enjoy this yummy dessert absolutely guilt free :)

  • Milk - 4 tablespoons
  • Oil - 1 tablespoon
  • Yogurt - 1 tablespoon (original recipe uses 1 Tbsp of unsweetened apple sauce)
  • Vanilla essence - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Grated carrot - 3 tablespoons
  • Maida - 6 tablespoons (I used 3 Tbsp of whole wheat flour and 3 Tbsp of maida)
  • Sugar - 2 tablespoons
  • Baking soda - 1/2 teaspoon

For vanilla yogurt icing:
  • Yogurt - 2 tablespoons
  • Powdered sugar - 1 tablespoon
  • Vanilla essence - 1/4 teaspoon

  1. Mix together milk, oil, grated carrot, vanilla essence
  2. Add in the flour, sugar, baking soda and mix well so that there are no lumps
  3. Transfer the contents to a microwave safe coffee mug or small microwave safe bowls
  4. Microwave it on high for 2 minutes (2 minutes is an ideal time. Depending on the power of your microwave, it might require half a minute more or less but do not overdo it)
  5. For the icing, mix the yogurt, powdered sugar and vanilla extract well and pour it over the mug cake

Enjoy the low fat treat without any guilt!

Eating healthy, can be tasty too!
