Chocolate Mug Cake

Most people have heard of the 5 minute mug cake by now, but I came across this recipe and realized it had been emailed to me ages ago. I don’t even remember where it came from. It’s as good a mug cake recipe as any and you can easily customize it to your taste. I made this for dessert night because I needed something fast and easy for the boys. Serve it with some chocolate or caramel syrup, and a dollop of whipped cream if you have it. It’s a winner.


Chocolate Mug Cake

4 T flour

4 T sugar

2 T cocoa

1 egg

3 T milk


3 T mini chocolate chips

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 large microwave safe coffee mug


Add dry ingredients into the mug and mix well. Add the egg and combine thoroughly.

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips and vanilla, and mix again.

Place mug into the microwave and cook for 3 minutes. Don’t worry if it rises over the top of the mug. Allow to cool a little before tipping out onto a plate.

Cake will look wet at the bottom- do not put back into the microwave or it will overcook quickly. Just let it cool a minute, slice it up, and top it with some cream and sauce.

One mug made a big enough cake for me to slice it three ways. However, you may want a whole one to yourself! 🙂
