Happy 2014! My family tradition is to ring in the new year with champagne, which inspired me to create this champagne mug cake.
I cooked them directly in the champagne glasses, which make them perfect for serving at a party.
The cake fizzles slightly on your tongue as a result of the champagne bubbles.
Because champagne doesn’t have too much flavor, the cake is a little plain. It basically tastes like a sweet white cake with a little fizzle. If you want to spice it up, you can add some chopped strawberries, making it a strawberry champagne mug cake. Either way, it’s quite fun and I’m planning on making these next time I host a party.
Champagne Mug Cake
- 4 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp fat free milk
- 2 tbsp dry champagne
- 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
- Note: The cake is a little plain by itself so to add a little more flavor to the cake, try adding some chopped strawberries to the batter or a little champagne whipped cream frosting
- Combine all ingredients into an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until batter is smooth. If desired, pour batter into a champagne flute. Make sure the batter only fills up half of the flute. All the batter should fit into a standard champagne flute but if yours are a little small, you may need to split the batter.
- Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. Top of cake should be dry. Let cake cool a few minutes before eating. If cooking in glass champagne flute, hold by the stem, as the glass will be quite hot.
