One of my favorite cookbooks( Red Velvet Mug Cake Edition)

Hello everyone, hope your all doing well. For this blog I decided to do another one of my favorite cookbooks because I really liked doing the first one. This recipe comes from the book Mug Cakes, by Leslie Bilderback. Now I know what you’re thinking: I want one of your recipes, Bernadine!!πŸ˜‘ But don’t worry- I’m just planning on what my next recipes toΒ show you guys, so hang tight!! For now, enjoy this red velvet mug cake! I love it because sometimes you don’t want to make a whole cake and frost it and all those steps, so this is perfect when you just want one serving if cake!! Enjoy!

Red velvet mug cake recipe:

1 large egg

3 tbs. vegetable oil( I use canola oil)

1 tsp. of liquid red food coloring (5ml)

3 tbs. of buttermilk (75ml)

2 tsp. of pure vanilla extract (10ml)

1/4 cup of granulated sugar (50g)

2 tbs. of unsweetened cocoa powder (15g)

1/4 cup of self rising flour (30 g)

a pinch of kosher salt

1/4 tsp. of cider vinegar

 

Directions

In a large mug, whisk together the egg and oil with a fork. Stir in the food coloring, buttermilk, vanilla, and sugar. Add the cocoa, flour, salt, and vinegar. Beat the batter until smooth. Divide the batter between two mugs. Microwave separately for 1 and a half to 2 and a half minutes each until risen and firm.

Top with my recipe for delicious cream cheese frosting!

( P.S.- I tried to convert this recipe into the metric unit as much as possible, but please  be mindful if i accidentally put the wrong measurement because im still learning. Here in the U.S., we dont use the metric system, so I tried my best for those of you who live outside of the U.S. Or use the metric system.☺️)

(P.P.S. The first Ask Bern will be Saturday, so please LOAD the comment section with all your baking questions! Ive received some of them, and if you asked, I will answer your question in Ask Bern. You can also email me your questions at my email which is bernadine325@gmail.com.)

  1. You got a lovely red colour to the sponge as well πŸ™‚ I made red velvet cake once but it didn’t come out quite as red as I’d have liked!

      Sometimes I like to use gel food coloring because it makes your dessert the color you want, without messing with the flavor or texture.

    Can you use a normal cake mix or does it have to be a special kind? I’m thinking on doing this recipe for a grade in home ec and i want it to be perfect. ~Anne

      Do you mean use cake mix instead of flour? I don’t understand your question πŸ€”πŸ€”

    Sorry.😑 Posted comment before I read what i wrote. I meant can I make a boxed cake mix and put it in the mugs and do it that way or will that not work? ~Anne

    The best way to convert is to weigh what is in your cup. I love the idea of cake in a mug….
