This creamy coffee mug cake is the perfect quick treat for coffee lovers.
On Mondays, my mind is always foggy and tired. The only clear thought that runs through my head is the need for coffee. During the week, I start my mornings with a shot of espresso and a little steamed milk using my Nespresso machine. But on weekends and when I go out for coffee, I like to order a latte. I love the oversized mugs, the creamy milk froth and the pretty latte art on top.
I dusted the surface of this cake with some powdered sugar to try to imitate the latte art. This mug cake has a very creamy coffee flavor, much like how a latte is creamy from the steamed milk. To get the creamy milk sensation, I used heavy cream in the batter. It made such a difference and I loved the result!
Latte Mug Cake
- 4 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp + 1 tsp granulated white sugar
- 1/2 tsp espresso powder
- 2 tbsp low fat milk
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
- 1/2 tsp water
- Combine all ingredients into a microwave-safe mug, at least 8 oz in size. This makes a small mug cake, so you can use a smaller mug, just make sure it is not less than 8 oz.
- Mix all ingredients with a mini whisk until batter is smooth. Cook in the microwave at full power for about 1 minute. The surface of the cake should look done. Let cake cool a few minutes before eating.
