    Buttered Rum Mug Cake
    .
    Tip: “Be sure to use unsalted butter, since the self-rising flour has salt in it already. For extra rum flavor, use rum extract in place of vanilla.”

    4 tablespoons self-rising flour
    4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    Pinch of ground nutmeg
    2 tablespoons beaten egg or liquid egg substitute
    1 tablespoon dark rum
    2 tablespoons milk
    2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract

    Mix the flour, sugar, and nutmeg in a mug. Add the egg, rum, milk, butter, and vanilla and stir until well combined. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until the top is just dry.

    Carrot Mug Cake
    .
    Tip: “You will not believe that this carrot cake takes two minutes to make. It’s important to make sure the carrot is grated as finely as possible, so it can soften properly in the microwave. I use the medium holes on a box grater.”

    4 tablespoons self-rising flour
    4 tablespoons sugar
    1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 tablespoons beaten egg or liquid egg substitute
    3 tablespoons milk
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    3 tablespoons grated carrot
    2 tablespoons chopped walnuts or almonds
    cream cheese frosting (above)

    Mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a mug. Add the egg, milk, oil, and grated carrot and stir until well combined. Fold in the nuts. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until the top is just dry.

    Chocolate Caramel salted Mug Cake
    .
    Tip: “You can either use store-bought caramel sauce, or throw a few unwrapped caramel candies into a ramekin and microwave them at 50 percent power for a minute or two to melt them.”

    4 tablespoons self-rising flour
    4 tablespoons sugar
    3 tablespoons cocoa powder
    2 tablespoons beaten egg or liquid egg substitute
    3 tablespoons milk
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons caramel sauce or 1 ounce solid caramel, melted
    Sea salt

    Mix the flour, sugar, and cocoa powder in a mug. Add the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla and stir until well combined. Swirl in the caramel sauce or melted caramel and sprinkle the top with sea salt. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until the top is just dry.

    Red Velvet Mug Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting
    .
    Tip: “I upped the cocoa powder significantly to give this a stronger chocolate flavor, which I think tastes better. But if you want the classic rose-red color you see in bakery red velvet cake, reduce the cocoa powder to one tablespoon”

    4 tablespoons self-rising flour
    4 tablespoons sugar
    3 tablespoons cocoa powder
    2 tablespoons beaten egg or liquid egg substitute
    1 tablespoon red food coloring
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    3 tablespoons buttermilk

    Mix the flour, sugar, and cocoa powder in a mug. Add the egg, food coloring, oil, and buttermilk and stir until well combined. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until the top is just dry. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

    CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

    2 ounces cream cheese, softened
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup powdered sugar

    Beat the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and beat until smooth.

    Motomom34, thank you for the link as well. the Hungry Hedgehog link has 6 or more mug cake recipes, and a photo recipe index. I found a few interesting other recipes there as well. The baked Crab Rangoon with spicy sweet hot sauce has me wishing I had all the ingredients to make it immediately.

    I am trying to lower my sugar intake, again. I think some of these recipes can be tweaked. Coconut flour and void the oils plus make other changes so they are healthier. Since it is such small quantities of ingredients it won't be such a waste it if is a fail.
