How to Make Chocolate Mug Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Use one large coffee mug (Microwave Safe) to make your cake.
  • 2Add dry ingredients to the mug and stir well.
  • 3Add the egg and stir thoroughly.
  • 4Pour in the milk and oil and stir well.
  • 5Add the chocolate chips and/or nuts (if using) and vanilla extract, and stir well again.
  • 6Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high setting. The cake will rise over the top of the mug but no worries. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate.
