Raspberry Ricotta Mug Cake


First attempt


Second attempt


This mug cake is so easy to make and it’s a one-person serving.  Great for singles!

1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1 large egg
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons of melted butter
1/4 cup of flour
1/3 cup raspberries

Whisk together ricotta and egg.  Add melted butter and maple syrup.  Stir in flour and mix together then put ingredients in a coffee mug or a soup mug.  Top with raspberries.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar


My first attempt at making the mug cake I made in a soup mug (wider than a coffee mug).  I wasn’t sure if my raspberries which were frozen would dilute the cake once in the microwave so I heated the raspberries, mushed, and placed the raspberries on top.

The second attempt was made in a coffee mug and since the raspberries didn’t ruin the mug cake the first time I placed them on top, then microwaved.

Be careful when you remove from the microwave as it’s very hot.

I used Ed Smith No Sugar Added Syrup (since I’m diabetic) and substituted margarine instead of butter.  It worked out just fine.
