Eggless Ginger-Honey-Choco mug cake

Cloudy evening, down with cold, craving for ginger and honey but no mood to spend a long time in the kitchen. What do I do?? Mix up ingredients of my choice and come up with a delicious mug cake!! Yeah time to give myself a treat :) The flavor ginger, added with honey was so soothing to my soar throat. But please do not consider this as a medicine ;) It would taste divine anytime and this is my most favorite mug cake till date!
No maida, no egg, no butter - so this is a healthy treat that is perfect for sudden sweet cravings!! To top it up, it takes a maximum of 5 minutes for preparation and baking (Much lesser time to finish it off ;) )
Recipe source - Priya's easy and tasty recipes.  From the original recipe, I replace carrot with ginger and half the sugar with honey and was absolutely delighted with this wacky experiment!

You might also like to check out the other mug cake recipes that I have tried:

  • Whole wheat flour - 2 tablespoons
  • Sugar - 1 tablespoon (I used dark brown sugar, you could use white sugar or even palm sugar)
  • Grated ginger - 1 tablespoon
  • Cocoa powder - 1 tablespoon
  • Baking powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Baking soda - a pinch
  • Olive oil - 1.5 tablespoon (You could use any flavorless oil too)
  • Yogurt - 2 tablespoons

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients till the batter is smooth
  2. Pour it in a microwave safe coffee mug
  3. Microwave it on high for 1.5 - 2 minutes (Keep an eye after 1 minute. Mine was done in 1.5 minutes)
  4. Beware, it will be quite hot, try to hold on for a minute or two and then dig in!! 

Tadaa.. look how fast it got over!!
