I have been hearing about these “Cake in a Mug” recipes for quite sometime now (TV shows/Friends).

But never got the time or the urge to try one as we always had something chocolatey in the house to munch upon.

So yesterday night while watching a horror movie (Yes, Horror 🙂 I had this crazy urge to have a ooey gooey chocolate cake (which wasn’t there in the house)…..
Low Fat Microwave Mug Cake Process from start to finish
But I didn’t want to kill the movie by going through the cake making process n baking at night…….FINALLY got to make this very much in vogue Low Fat Microwave Mug Cake.
Here’s the recipe for a Low Fat Microwave Mug Cake which I wanted to top with fresh fruit but lack of time !!!
Serve/Consume this cake as soon as it’s made, If you plan to serve later, pour some sweet syrup on it OR serve it with ice-cream. (As it gets little chewy once cold)

*** While microwaving the cake, it will rise n puff over the edges, DON’T WORRY, it will puff down once the timer is done.
Yield: 1 Mug Cake
