Easy Microwave Chocolate Cake in a MUG!

This is a quick and easy chocolate cake you can cook in the microwave in less than THREE minutes. And it tastes great. Really!

Is perfect for an after school treat or for those crazy midnight CRAVINGS...

Here is what you'll need:


1 egg
4 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons cocoa (I use Nesquik)
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

In a mug that holds at least 12 oz., combine all the ingredients; blend together with a fork until smooth.

Cook in the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Since all microwaves cook differently, adjust the cooking time to accommodate your machine. To serve, let the cake cool five minutes, then cover the mug with a plate and turn mug and plate upside down so the cake falls onto the plate.

Chocolate ganache.

2 tablespoons milk
1 teasppoon butter
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa

Cook in the microwave on high for 30 sec.

Pour over and enjoy!!

You can substitute the ganache for frosting.


  1. about to try this recipe, will comment on how it comes out!

  2. Well, just finished making it.

    Came out alright. The texture is really nice, but dry. Then again I think I miscounted my milk tbs so this could be my fault.

    If I would recommend anything, it would be to add extra nesquik or use regular cocoa because 4 tbs of nesquik just isn't chocolatey enough. And when I used to make these a while back, I remember adding vanilla extract which oddly enough really helped enhance the chocolate flavor.
