Raspberry mug cake

The other day Andy was wanting a dessert, and we didn't really have anything sweet in the house.  So I decided to try and make some mug cakes. It was so easy, and quite good.  Granted, we kind of overcooked it, so the bottom was burnt, but it was still very yummy!

When I first told him my idea, what he took from what I said is that if you put strawberries and strawberry yogurt in the microwave you get cake.  In reality there were a few more steps, but it was still very easy, and took about 5 minutes start to finish.

We thought we had strawberry yogurt, but we had raspberry instead, so this was our raspberry mug cake.

1 egg

2 tablespoons raspberry yogurt, well stirred

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/8 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 tablespoons granulated sugar

5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 cup fresh raspberries and whipped cream for serving

1. First coat the inside of the mug lightly with cooking oil, and set aside.
2. Mix the egg, yogurt, vegetable oil, baking powder, extract, sugar and flour in a small bowl until completely smooth.


3. Fill the mug to halfway full and place it in the microwave. Bake it in the microwave for 2.5 to 4 minutes (start at the low end), or until a cake tester comes out clean. Top with raspberries and whipped cream and serve.
