Masala Chai Mug Cake ~ Day 82

This scrumptious, light and fluffy mug cake is for all the chai / tea lovers out there.  It's sugar and spice and everything nice.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 50 seconds to 1:10 minutes
Serves: 1

Milk - 2 1/2 tbsp
Tea bag - 1
Tea masala - 1/2 tsp
AP flour - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Melted Butter or oil - 3/4 tbsp
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch

  1. Heat milk in a microwave safe mug for 30 seconds.  Dip the tea bag in milk and let it seep for 30 seconds. Discard the tea bag.
  2. Add the melted butter or oil, sugar, vanilla extract, and tea masala.  Mix well.
  3. Add the flour, baking power, and salt.  Whisk well to combine.
  4. Lightly butter your favorite mug and transfer the cake mixture.  Microwave for 50 seconds, then 10 second intervals until the cake is done.  Mine took only 50 seconds to cook.  The timing depends on the powder of the microwave.  
  5. Dig in and enjoy the warm cake drizzled with caramel or chocolate sauce or topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
