5 Minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug

May 17, 2013

In just 5 minutes, you could be enjoying Chocolate Cake in a Mug! 

I heard about this recipe from a few different people but this is the first time I actually tried it. I thought, it probably doesn’t taste very nice or the texture is too dry or uneven.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp. flour
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • A small splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 large mug
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

Method

  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
  5. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
  6. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!
  7. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

Surprisingly, it tastes pretty good. I never added the chocolate chips but I think that would have made the texture just right (nothing a little melted Rolo Chocolate on top could not fix!). If you are craving Chocolate Cake this is the ideal recipe!
