Chocolate Mug Cake

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This is a neat little thing to do in cold weather. Kids love to help.


1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour(that's plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Small splash of vanilla

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, and mix again.
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!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

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!

If my arithmaticin' and convertin' are right, that's over 1 1/2 cups of ingredients... plus space to rise... that's a pretty big mug.

Wow...sounds good Bill! Thanks!
I rarely make cakes because I can't eat a whole one before it goes bad. This will work out great for me. :)

I've got some really big mugs 16oz, or so from college days. 25 Cent Watneys Red Barrel Draughts, and yeah, I guess I am that old. Just need to buy some eggs and this is a go for tonight. Thanks for the recipe.

it'll work in a regular mug, I tried it, it rises about 2 inches out, but when the microwave cuts off it goes right back down in the mug.

Oh man... this is just what my diet needs! I seriously need to stop reading this forum.

Wait, what am I thinking!
post #14 of 16 worked great!
I didn't have any chocolate chips, but will add them next time. It is still tasty!
I mug holds 2 cups. It kind of overflowed a bit, but it worked.

Now Jeanie, you didn't think the ole hillbilly would put the shuck on you did you? After all I'm married to a Jeanne. Little different spelling, but same trusting demeanor.
