Cake in a Mug

Dessert is my weakness! And I usually love spending time in my she cave (also known as my kitchen) baking up amazing desserts at least once a week. With school now back in full force, I just haven’t found the time in the past few weeks. So when my after dinner dessert fix wasn’t being fulfilled, I stormed the internet in search of a super quick and easy dessert I can make in a just a few minutes. Which was all I had between dinner and homework.

This recipe will only take you about 2 minutes to prep and mix and 90 seconds cooking! No, I have not used magic or found a secret machine to freeze time. This is cake in a mug!

Recipe makes one cake in a mug.


Here is what you need: 

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt, optional
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Splash vanilla extract, optional (but I recommend)
3 tablespoons chocolate chips

Here is what you do:
You need a 12-ounce microwave-safe ceramic mug and a microwave oven.
Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt if using in a 12-ounce microwave-safe ceramic mug. Blend thoroughly with a fork. Add the milk (I used almond milk), vegetable oil and vanilla if using and blend until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Do not overcook or the cake will be dry. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before eating.

I cooked mine for about 85 seconds as I wanted mine a little “under” done and it was PERFECT!
