Mug Cake

I made this super easy
2 mins chocolate cake
for a quick chocolate craving fix! hehe
i know. not the conventional kind to make a cake.
but its the best i could come up with
in the shortest time! (:

it’s called Mug Cake!
and it’s exactly what it looks like.
making a cake in your mug!
and in the microwave.
I followed all the instructions. and it said on high for 3mins.
and mine came out a bit overdone.
so I would say. 2 mins and it would be nice, and almost lava cake-ish. hehe

can tell it’s pretty dry and stuff.
but it was still yummy! (: hehe
just need to shorten the time in the microwave.
and it would be perfect.
so give it a try if you need a quick choc fix! hehe

4 tablespoon of plain flour
4 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tablespoon of milk
3 tablespoon of oil
3 tablespoon of chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract

Methods :

1. Add dry ingredients into a bowl
2. Add the egg and mix well. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well again.
Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and mix again.
3. Pour mixture into your mug, and put in in the microwave for 2 mins at HIGH.

PS: the cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t worry. it will be fine! (:
Let it cool and sprinkle some icing sugar to make it look pretty!


Enjoy dearies. It’s all good and easy and fun!

    Hi there!

    I am new to your blog. I just tried this. You are right, it’s very quick … I need all the help I can get with a active 5 yr. He is sitting happily eating the cake!

    Mine came out a little over done … I think … it’s very dense. Not fluffy like yours … and mine didn’t rise as high.

    I added a tsp of instant coffee to mine … and I didn’t have any chocolate chips.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Tricia! Thanks for reading my blog! (: and I’m so glad your son is enjoying it!
      The timing may differ according to the type of microwave so maybe next time just reduce the time a little!
      Hope that helps! (:
      and you’re most welcome for the recipe!
