Mug cakes have always been a huge hit in our home. They are so easy and perfect when you have a sugar craving. My favorite mug cake recipes include Nutella Brownie Mug Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug Cake and Chocolate Chip Banana Mug Cake or this Black Forest Mug Cake

Microwave mango cake recipes usually include blending mango into a puree. But, I wanted a mango cake without oven that does not involve doing more dishes yet pack a WHOLE lot of mango flavor.

Borrowing the idea from my strawberry velvet cupcakes or mango kulfi, where the fruit is cooked first to evaporate most of the liquid, hence adding a concentrated flavor to the end product.

But, an easy mango cake in a mug should not involve additional steps and planning. So, we use a clever technique of cooking chopped mango first in the same mug to evaporate some of the moisture and then stirring the dry ingredients.

Eggless mango cake ingredients:

Mango

Coconut

All purpose flour

Sugar

Butter

Baking powder

Flavorings – Cardamom powder and saffron

Tips and Tricks:

Mango – Select a ripe but firm mango. Over ripe mango will be difficult to cut into small pieces.

Scant cup – We need one cup, but slightly less. Make sure that you don’t pack while measuring.

Room temperature butter is recommended. Cold butter reduces the temperature of mangoes drastically and affects the texture in the finished product,

Sugar – Some mangoes tend to be more sweeter than others. Use the guide below :

2 tablespoons sugar for very sweet mango

2 and 1/2 tablespoons for moderately sweet mango

3 tablespoons for not very sweet mango

Saffron – Saffron gives a more deeper golden color and adds flavor to the eggless mango cake in microwave as well.

Coconut – DO NOT SKIP – Coconut and mango is a classic combo. The coconut adds a little texture and chewiness to this mango mug cake which makes it even more delicious. You can use sweetened / unsweetened shredded coconut or desiccated coconut. Fresh grated coconut does not work well.

Cardamom powder – Freshly ground cardamom powder is HIGHLY recommended. To make homemade cardamom powder, grind some whole green cardamoms in a dry grinder, until powdered fine. Use 1/2 teaspoon for the recipe and remaining cardamom powder can be frozen in a sealed ziplock and used in other recipes.

Notes

Mango - Select a ripe but slightly firm mango (not over ripe ones). Refer video to cut mango into small cubes.

Scant cup - We need one cup, but slightly less. Make sure that you don't pack while measuring.

Room temperature butter is recommended. Cold butter reduces the temperature of mangoes drastically and affects the texture in the finished product.

Sugar - Some mangoes tend to be more sweeter than others. Use the guide below :

2 tablespoons sugar for very sweet mango

2 and 1/2 tablespoons for moderately sweet mango

3 tablespoons for not very sweet mango

Saffron - Saffron gives a more deeper golden color and adds flavor as well.

Coconut - DO NOT SKIP - Coconut and mango is a classic combo. The coconut adds a little texture and chewiness, which makes it more delicious.

I used sweetened shredded coconut. You can use unsweetened shredded coconut or desiccated coconut, but add a touch more sugar. Fresh grated coconut does not work well.

Cardamom powder - Freshly ground cardamom powder is HIGHLY recommended. To make homemade cardamom powder, grind some whole green cardamoms in a dry grinder, until powdered fine. Use 1/2 teaspoon for the recipe and remaining cardamom powder can be frozen in a sealed ziplock and used in other recipes.
