Chocolate Mug Cake

November 24, 2009

Mum had mentioned a quick ‘mug cake’ recipe that she wanted to try on the phone to me before D. and I visited Newcastle. While we were there (and when we weren’t busy eating birthday cake) Mum and I decided to take on the challenge of making the cake (whilst we were drinking). Needless to say the drinking did not help with our understanding of self raising flour and its effects.

Overflow in the microwave 😀

Please note that this cake is in no way healthy or low cal!!!

4 tablespoons cake flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate drops (optional)
splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to the mug and mix well
Crack an egg and add it to your mug
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well
Add the chocolate drops if you’ve got them, and a splash of vanilla essence too
Pop your mug into the microwave and zap for 3 minutes on maximum power (1000 watt)

Bon appétit!

    I’m a big fan of the chocolate mug cake, too. In fact, I’m also the author of “101 Recipes for Microwave Mug Cakes” that builds on this recipe (but, hopefully, adds some ideas and baking tips for those who love microwave mug cakes as much as I do). Check it out at
