Published Friday, 21 February, 2014 by ridz

It is the best recipe i have ever tried for a cake in a cup



  • 3 tablespoons of castor sugar (you can also use normal sugar and grind it first making it like castor sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 egg
  • vanilla essence (a tiny drop)


1. Mix castor sugar, all purpose floue, egg, oil in a mixer or blender and make a smooth paste or batter.

2. Pour this in a cup

3. Put it in microwave for 2.30 min

4. After 2.30 min check the cake by inserting a toothpick in it . If it comes out clean the cake is done ... If not then an additional 30 sec

    Well i have posted this recipe in many other categories as well and i received 80% positive reviews :) so i guess it worked for many people ... U should consider getting a new microwave i guess :) or a new watch perhaps :) best of luck

  • None Of Your Buisness 5 years ago

    My cake burnt! Do not try this recipe it is a prank!!

    Yes that is optional ... You can use any other essence whichever you have available... Or u can entirely skip that... I personally dont like vanilla essence .. It has a very strong smell for my taste :/
