My Cup of Tea!

Masala Chai Mug Cake

Masala Chai Mug Cake

I’m a coffee kinda person. A black cup of extra strong coffee kinda person. But when you leave the warmth of Bombay and land in the sub-zero temperatures of NYC, even the non-sentimental ones like me start dreaming of “Joginder ke haath ki garam Chai”! And throw in a common cold in that equation (seriously, a math related example?) plus a little bit of PMS (ok maybe not a little) and the next thing you’re coming up with the perfect mug cake a hungry soul can ask for! Try it yourself!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp unsweetened masala Chai (extra strong made with whole milk)
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Chai masala
  • Cooking spray for the Mug

Preparation

  1. whisk all the wet ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Add the dry ingredients and gently mix till the batter is lump free. (Gently if you want a soft cake)
  3. Spray a microwave safe mug with cooking spray. (Or grease it the old fashioned way, I don’t mind)
  4. Pour the batter in the mug.
  5. Microwave it for 110 seconds. (90 if you like a runny center)
  6. Serve hot with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream/ whipped cream.
