With a few basic ingredients and a microwave, you can make a rich and luscious chocolate cake that will keep you going back for more. Follow this recipe to make your chocolate masterpiece in a mug.


4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon breadcrumbs
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons herbs
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
The pink salt
Sprinkle with chocolate chips, fruit, or topping


Prepare the mug: To avoid overflow while cooking, choose a microwave-safe cup with a capacity of at least 12 ounces. To prevent sticking, lightly oil the inside of the mug with cooking spray or butter.

Combine Dry Ingredients: In the mug, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt until well combined. This forms the base of your cake batter.

Add Wet Ingredients: Pour in the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract into the mug with the dry ingredients. Use a fork or small whisk to mix everything until smooth and no lumps remain. For an extra indulgent treat, stir in a handful of chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles into the batter. These additions add texture and enhance the flavor of your chocolate mug cake.

Microwave: Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cake has risen and set in the center. Cooking time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave, so start with 1 minute and check for doneness.

Serve and Enjoy: Carefully remove the mug from the microwave (it will be hot!) and let it cool for a minute before digging in. You can enjoy the chocolate mug cake straight from the mug or transfer it onto a plate for a more elegant presentation. Top with whipped cream, ice cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar for an extra special touch.
