5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Hey everyone! I haven’t posted for a while, so let’s get to it!

Today’s post is about making a chocolate mug cake. This recipe makes a super moist and delicious cake. These are fun to make with friends, or just if you want a single portioned dessert that doesn’t require much effort.

Mug cakes are the super easy way to make a single portioned size of cake. And I’ve got to say, they taste better than store bought chocolate cakes.

Although I said these are “5 minute mug cakes”, if you know your kitchen well and can bake decently, you can prepare the cake in a shorter time than it takes to microwave it. So, it’s more like a “3 minute mug cake”. But there aren’t any promises here.

Okay, I don’t actually love chocolate cake that much. I’m more of a pie person (by “more”, I mean: I’M A PIE PERSON). But all the same, cake is better if you make it yourself.


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 tbs milk
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: powdered/confectioners/icing sugar to garnish


Combine all ingredients in a large mug or a bowl. Mix well.

Cook in the microwave for 1 minute and 45 seconds to 2 minutes until the cake is done in the middle.

Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar or another topping of your choice.
