5 minute chocolate mug cake

(4.41/5 - 27 votes)


- 4 tbsp flour
- 5 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp cocoa
- 1 tsp baking powder (I used 1/2 tsp and it turned out fine)
- 1/2 tsp coffee powder (I omitted this)
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp milk
- 3 tbsp oil
- 3 tbsp chocolate chips or flakes plus 2 tablespoon extra (I omitted these)
- A small splash of vanilla extract
- 2 microwave safe coffee mugs


1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a big bowl.

2. Next, add in the milk, oil, vanilla extract, egg and mix well.

3. Pour mixture into mugs (at the halfway mark).

4. Microwave one mug at a time. Cook for 1 minute on medium heat. It will bubble and rise as it cooks, so make sure you provide ample room for that. Leave it for a few seconds, then microwave for another 30 seconds on medium again. The mixture will solidify, but still look a little molten. That is fine because it will continue cooking on residual heat. Overcook it and you get a chocolate rubber ball.

5. Allow to cool a little and start digging in. Of course, nothing is stopping you from embellishing your cake and eating it too!
