How to make it

  • In a small bowl, place the flour, sugar and cornstarch.
  • Crack in the egg,
  • Add the cherry syrup, extracts, oil and half and half.
  • Whisk to form a batter.
  • The consistency is of a thick batter ( thick pour able but not runny )
  • if too runny, it may need another Tbs of flour
  • Place mixture into the mug.
  • Microwave ( use a turntable ) for 3 minutes ( I have a 1500 watt oven ) or cake has risen and puffed in cup and appears almost set on top but still has a slight glisten/sheen on the top
  • The trick is that the cake will continue to cook after you take it out, so you want it moist yet cooked and so the time is the most critical factor
  • 3 minutes was perfect for my 1500 watt oven.
  • Note: I also removed the cake from the mug ( photo ) and it stayed moist with nice cake texture and did not dry out.
  • I was very pleased what I created !
  • You may have to experiment a bit for your particular oven

    in case someone asks, there is no baking powder or leavening in the cake except for the egg and power of the micro,
    Also if you don't have cherry extract- just use all vanilla or even a bit of almond flavor to it.
