I got this email today with a recipe for a 5-minute chocolate cake that is baked in a coffee mug. I was grossed out so I deleted the message (after forwarding of course). The strange thing is, I can't stop thinking about going to the kitchen and making a cake in a mug. I've even been wondering if I could mod the recipe a bit to include a molten chocolate center. mmm. . .


  • 4 tablespoons cake flour (plain flour, not self-rising)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (you can add more or less)
  • 1 dash vanilla


  1. Add dry ingredients to a coffee mug and mix well.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla essence, mix again.
  5. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minuter at 1000 watts.
  6. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
  7. Allow to cool a little and you can tip onto a plate if you want.
