Pineapple Mug Cake

Enjoy pineapple mug cake in or out of the mug! 
The texture of this mug cake isn't nearly as dense as most of the made-from-scratch mug cake recipes that I have tried. I feel like this is a great way to make small servings of cake.
Yield: about 2 - 12 ounce servings, or about 4 - 6 ounce servings
  1. Two 12 oz. mugs
  2. Crack a large egg into a small bowl and beat with a fork until the yolk and egg white are blended fairly well. 
                                               One large egg makes about 3 Tbsp. of beaten egg.

Measure the following ingredients into each mug:

  • 6 Tbsp pineapple cake mix
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter, or melted shortening. Canola oil may be used too. 
  • about 1 1/2 Tbsp. beaten egg
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
    Ready to stir.

  • Stir ingredients in each mug together for about a minute, or until smooth and well blended.
    Smooth and well blended. Ready to microwave.
  • Place mugs into microwave  and cook for 3 minutes. Cooking time is for a 900 - 1000 watt microwave. 
  • The cake will rise to the top of the mug.
    Immediately after microwaving 3 minutes.
  • Remove the mugs from the microwave and allow to cool 2-3 minutes.
    After cooling 2-3 minutes, the mug cake can be turned out of the mug. 
  • At this point, you can turn the cake out onto a plate, or you can leave the cake in the mug.
    The mug cake slips out of the stoneware mug easily. The mug wasn't oiled or greased.
    Top with a topping of your choice and enjoy!
