    cocoa, unsweetened
  • 1
  • 3 Tbsp

How to Make Fun 5 minute Chocolate mug Cake


  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

    Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
    Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again
  2. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
    The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
  3. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT! Or you can add a scoop of ice cream, that would be great.
    ( this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
  4. And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
    Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
