Expert Baking Tips on how to make this quick easy microwave cake

Although this egg free microwave cake recipe is super simple to make, here are just a few expert tips i’d recommend:

  • Add a tsp or two of muesli to your mug cake to add more texture for the crumble topping.
  • Heat the mug cake in the microwave in 30 second intervals to prevent the cake from growing too fast and overflowing.
  • The cake is ready when the sponge springs back when touched.

Microwave cake recipe no egg – Ingredients

Here’s everything I used to make this microwave cake without egg

Vegan butter- You can use either vegan block butter or margarine. 

Water – A very small amount is required and is needed to bind the crumble together. 

Sugar- I like to use caster sugar which is just a very refined sugar, but if you don’t have any refined granulated sugar will work well here.

Gluten free Plain flour – If you’re gluten free flour doesn’t already have xanthan gum add a tsp to the dry ingredients. This will help add stability to the cake and prevent it from crumbling.

Banana/Apple puree – This will act as the egg substitute.
