Dessert in MINUTES

  1. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized microwave-safe mug, mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
  2. Add Wet Ingredients: To the same mug, add the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth, ensuring to scrape the bottom of the mug to incorporate all the dry ingredients.
  3. Add Chocolate Chips: If using, fold in the chocolate chips for an extra gooey chocolate experience.
  4. Microwave: Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high for about 70-90 seconds. Microwave times may vary, so start checking at 70 seconds to prevent overcooking. The cake should rise and still be slightly moist when done.
  5. Serve: Allow the mug cake to cool for a minute or two. It can be enjoyed straight from the mug, perhaps with a scoop of ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or a drizzle of chocolate syrup for an extra decadent treat.


  • Mug Size: Use a large mug to prevent the batter from overflowing as it cooks.
  • Cooking Time: Adjust the cooking time based on your microwave’s wattage and the desired moistness of the cake. Less time for a gooier cake, a bit more for a firmer texture.
  • Variations: Feel free to customize your mug cake. Add a spoonful of peanut butter, swap chocolate chips for nuts, or mix in a dash of cinnamon for a warm spice flavor.

This Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake proves that a comforting, delicious dessert doesn’t need to be complicated or time-consuming. Enjoy this delightful treat whenever the mood strikes – satisfaction is just a few minutes away!
