Five Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

My mom gave me this recipe and called it the most dangerous cake recipe in the world because now you can have chocolate cake anytime you want it, in just 5 minutes!

4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips

small splash vanilla

Add dry ingredients to large coffee mug and mix well.  Add egg and mix really well.  Pour in milk and oil and mix well again.  Add chocolate chips and vanilla and mix yet again.  Cook in microwave 3 minutes.  Allow to cool and tip out onto plate.

And here are my notes after making it a couple of times:

1  It works better to mix the ingredients in a small bowl and then pour them into the mug rather than mixing them in the mug (sometimes things didn’t get mixed well which resulted in a not so yummy cake as in chewy egg chunks, need I say more?).

2  It doesn’t say to, but I spray the mug with Pam just to make sure the cake comes out.

3  Use a large mug otherwise it overflows and makes a mess in the microwave.  As you can see from the picture, I used an extra tall mug.

4  One mug cake is enough for 2 people, usually.

  1. This sounds awesome! I am going to make it tonight with my Laurel class. They are always wanting to bake stuff, but there isn’t time on a Wednesday night. I could see this recipe going to college with each of them! 🙂
