Super Quick Chocolate Mug Cake

This Super Quick Chocolate Mug five minute Cake is made in a coffee mug in your microwave. Great for a quick mid-afternoon treat.

Serves: 1


4 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp oil
4 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp chocolate chips
2 Tbsp cocoa
2-3 drops vanilla extract
1 egg
1 coffee mug
3 Tbsp milk


  1. Add dry ingredients to the mug and mix well with a fork.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix well, being sure to scrape the edges of the cup to incorporate all the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and mix again.
  5. Place the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1,000 watts on high.
  6. The cake will rise over the top of the mug and then sink down when the microwave is turned off. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate. Run a knife around the edge if it doesn’t slide out easily.

Great with ice cream
