Quick, decadent and delicious mug cake recipe

90 Second Passionfruit Mug Cake.

By Tania Phillips

Quick, decadent and delicious – mug cakes are all the rage at the moment and with farmers expecting a bumper year for passionfruit – this little gem will also be economical.

90 Second Passionfruit Mug Cake


2 tbsp (30g) unsalted butter

1 tsp vegetable or canola oil

1 juicy passionfruit, halved, plus extra to serve if desired – I always do!

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg yolk

2 tbsp white sugar

4 tbsp plain flour (all purpose)

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp white choc chips

1. Place butter in mug – melt in microwave (15 – 20 sec).

2. Add oil, passionfruit pulp, vanilla extract & yolk, mix with a fork.

3. Add sugar, flour and baking powder, mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until top is just set and skewer inserted into the

middle comes out clean – it overcooks quickly, so it’s better to take it out slightly

early and pop back in for 10 sec increments if needed.

5. Serve with ice-cream & more fresh passionfruit!
