5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake


I was visiting home this weekend and my mom had this great recipe for a quick bedtime snack.  We all  got into our jammies and huddled around the counter to put together this 5-minute delight:


We measured the ingredients and let my 3 year old niece do the mixing:


Then into the microwave for 3 minutes…


We jazzed the chocolate cake up a bit with caramel and whipped topping:


A bit of a messy face and a few dirty dishes later and  it was off to bed:


Here is the recipe for a yummy treat you can enjoy anytime of day.

It only takes 5 minutes – maybe you can have it twice!

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

4 tbl flour

4 tbl sugar

2 tbl cocoa

1 egg

3 tbl milk

3 tbl oil

3 tbl chocolate chips

a small splash of vanilla

1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips 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.
