In a medium-sized bowl, combine all-purpose flour, matcha green tea powder, sugar, and baking powder. Gradually whisk in milk and oil. Whisk well until completely smooth.
Transfer the mixture into a microwave-safe mug and microwave for 3 minutes.
For a while now, I was searching for a perfect dessert recipe that won't take hours to prepare. I simply wanted something where I can combine the ingredients together and get it done within a couple of minutes.
Let's be honest, fancy cakes and luxurious brownies do sound tempting but most of us just can't afford to spend all that time in the kitchen preparing them – at least not every day. Then, I came across this fabulous idea which sounded too good to be true – matcha mug cake.
At first, I was a bit skeptical because most of the things that sound too good to be true usually are just that. However, I was really surprised with the final result. In just three minutes of cooking (and less than ten minutes with the preparation time) I got a beautiful green tea flavor and a healthy bright green color combined with the best possible fluffy texture you can imagine.
There it was! My new favorite dessert and sometimes even a breakfast choice with the endless amount of combinations and flavors yet to be discovered. I wanted to share with you the basic matcha mug cake recipe you can prepare with almost no ingredients at all. But if you're anything like me, I'm sure you will try this fabulous dessert with some fruits, nuts, chocolate, and cream. Enjoy!

I like the fresh and somewhat strong flavor of green tea in my mug cake. It’s the easiest and the healthiest option which goes perfectly with my afternoon tea or a morning coffee.
However, you can spice things up with some semi-sweet chocolate chips, grated milk chocolate, or a simple sugar. It all depends on your taste and the mood.
I’ve even tried adding some finely chopped almonds, raisins, dried dates, and fresh berries. The options are really endless. Serve this super easy mug cake with whipped cream, fresh fruits, or a nice fudge sauce, and enjoy this beautiful and healthy dessert.
