Pineapple Mug cake

Pineapple mug cake, "cup of cake" a hot delicious, fresh home-baked microwave cake ready in 2 minutes anytime you have a craving for quick dessert. 

We first tried chocolate mug cake and slightly altered recipe and made pineapple mug cake when some guest were home and everyone liked the idea of instant cake and wanted the recipe.

You can make this in one coffee mug or in two espresso cups like the one in picture. I only cooked it for 1 min and 30 seconds in microwave.  It depends on the microwave power and cake gets rubbery even if you cook for extra few seconds. Watch the cake every few seconds after one minute to find the right cooking time for your microwave.  I tried a few times to get it right :)

Serves: 2

  • All purpose flour - 3 tbls
  • Powdered Sugar - 2-1/2 tblsp
  • Baking soda - 1/8 tsp
  • Baking powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Milk - 3 tblsp
  • Cooking oil - 3 tblsp
  • Vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - pinch
  • Food color - pinch
  • Pineapple chunks - 1 tbsp
  • Pineapple juice - 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Whipped cream - 1 tbsp


  1. Mix all purpose flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, milk, oil and vanilla essence
  2. Mix them vigorously for a min 
  3. Then add pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, food color and salt
  4. Mix again for a minute to incorporate all ingredients
  5. Pour the contents to a coffee mug or two expresso cups until the cup is 3/4th full, allow some space for the cake to raise
  6. Cook in microwave for 1 mins and 30 seconds (may vary according to your microwave power)
  7. Cake will puff up but will deflate when switched off 
  8. Remove it from microwave when its still moist and slightly undercooked
  9. Allow the cake to cool down till it's warm
  10. Add whipped cream swirls and fresh pineapple chunks
  11. Serve and finish mug cake immediately as it can get rubbery when cold

Inspired  from Nithya's 4th sense cooking  . Thanks Nithya for this wonderful recipe.
