Carrot Mug Cake / Microwave Carrot Cake ~ Eggless!!

I am in love with this quick and easy mug cakes. These mug cakes are very simple, instant preparation with so satisfying taste and above all its Eggless microwave recipe. Actually i wanted to bake some carrot loaf cake for my Show Me Your HITS~Carrots & Beets event and also started ready with the stuffs, then suddenly a thought came why don't i try it as a mug cake?! then searched for an Eggless carrot mug cake recipe and glad to have tried this recipe. With very very little alterations i did my carrot mug cake and the result was awesome, We 4 finished the mug in no minutes and again  i made another one for me. Yes, more than my kids i loved this carrot cake a lot. So soft and delicious. This time i used Vanilla imitation, and the flavor dominated more and on the whole cake was Superb!!! I could say that this is A Must Try recipe!!! Now to the recipe...

  37. Hi!! This looks amazing plus it can easily be adapted to suit allergic needs ie. soya buttermilk
    I was just wondering, and I would greatly appreciate if anyone could tell me,
    if i put the mix in a small cake tin (that fits in the microwave) and did everything the same, would it just make a small cake?
    I'm having a dinner party soon and this is the easiest carrot cake recipe I've found that suits vegans.
    If not, I suppose I could use mugs but looks a bit unprofessional! I suppose it kind of feels homey if it's in a mug though!
    Hehe thanks for the recipe! :)
