Perfect chocolate cake in a mug

This awesomely delicious chocolate mug cake is a single-serving one. Another good thing about this microwave mug cake is, you will only need one mug to do the whole prepping and baking process. So it’s not only very delicious but also very easy to make too.
Servings 1 Mug
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 1 min
Total Time 6 mins

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 20 gram Milk chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • First, in a microwave-safe mug ( roughly 1 cup ( roughly 1 cup measurement) all purpose flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Then give the dry ingredients a good mix. (here you can also use brown sugar instead of white to give the cake a nice gooey texture).
  • Then add in the milk, vanilla essence and oil. Mix all the ingredients until well incorporated. Finally mix in some milk chocolate chunks into the batter.
  • Now microwave for 1 minute. (here I've used a 1200w microwave, if yours is different then the timing may vary. If the microwave you have is less than 1200w, it may take you up to 1.5-2 minutes to make the cake).
  • Take it out of the microwave oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes.
  • Dust your cake with some icing sugar and drizzle it with some chocolate sauce or you can serve the cake with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
