The BEST Chocolate Mug Cake


This cake is Delicious, Great for a Chocolate fix as well as Quick and Easy to make, plus you don’t technically need any Cooking Skills to make it – Just a half descent Microwave and a suitable cup.   The worsted thing that could happen is that you’ll over cook it slightly and it will have a rubbery texture, but it’s fine if you smother it in either cream or milk and then leave it to soak in for a few minutes. Enjoy

 You Will Need:

  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • A very small pinch of salt
  • 2-4 tbsp sugar (any kind you want though brown tastes best)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2-4 tbsp chocolate chips/sprinkles (optional)



In a large microwaveable cup mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder, sugar and salt.

Add the chocolate chips if using.


Add the wet ingredients and mix everything until just combined.


Cook in a microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. With the tips of your fingers feel the top of the cake and if it spring back then your cakes finished, if it’s still sticky then microwave for another 10 seconds and check it again until your cake is finished and leave to the side for 5 minutes before you start eating.
