How to Make a Chocolate Cake in a Coffee Mug!

Do you like cake and sometimes just don't want to take a half hour or more to make one? I know I do. Here is a great recipe for a chocolate cake that only takes 3 minutes and only dirties a coffee mug, measuring spoon and a fork!

  • Coffee Mug (Large mug makes less mess - Small mug may overflow and make a small mess in your microwave)
  • 4 Tbsp of Flour
  • 4 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Baking Cocoa (You can also use the same amount of dry pudding mix if you don't want chocolate.)
  • 1 Egg
  • 4 Tbsp Milk
  • 3 Tbsp Oil (I use applesauce instead.)
  • Small Splash of Vanilla


  • Get any coffee mug of your choice.
  • Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour in the milk and oil (applesauce) and mix well.
  • Add vanilla and mix again.
  • Put mug in the microwave for 3 minutes. The cake will rise over the top of the mug.
  • Allow to cool, then enjoy.

This was a great, yummy project for me and my 2 year old to do together. I added the ingredients and he stirred. He had so much fun watching it rise in the microwave and then of course there was a delicious end to it! As you can see, I used a large mug so it didn't fill the cup when it was done but it was plenty for the two of us!

Thanks to Jackie for passing this recipe along.
