This serves as your warning.  

I am about to share with you the most addictive homemade item known to all chocolate lovers.

I bring you. . . . . 

The 5 minute Chocolate Mug Cake (scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

It's like Warm Delights meets Betty Homemaker-Do-It-Yourself.  

All I can say is thank you to Together We Save for leaving a comment on my blog the other day. If it hadn't been for her visit and comment, I would have never found out about this simple and highly addictive recipe.

Here it is and don't say I didn't warn you.  The name should be changed to 5 Minute Chocolate Crack Cake.  Seriously.

  • 4 TBSP flour
  • 4 TBSP sugar
  • 2 TBSP cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 TBSP milk
  • 3 TBSP oil
  • 3 TBSP chocolate chips
  • splash of vanilla extract
In a large microwave-safe mug add dry ingredients and mix well.  

Add the egg and mix well. 

Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and mix well.

Put mug in microwave and cook for 3 minutes (using a 1000 watt microwave).

The cake will rise over the top of the mug - it's ok.

Allow to cool a little.  Tip out onto plate or eat out of the mug.  

I like to sprinkle it with powdered sugar, whipped cream or serve it with ice cream to punch up the calories.  Why not - you're already eating homemade cake!

Enjoy your awesomeness-in-a-mug.


  1. Uh-oh.
    I have a feeling I'll regret coming here to read this...

  2. well, this couldn't have come at a better time for me! i always feel sorry for myself when i'm stuck in the house b/c of sick kids (one threw up last night), so i'll probably make this for myself tonight! thanks!


Your comments make my day - so go on, share!
