Rich and moist dark chocolate Mug Cakes



For the Mug Cakes

  • 2 tablespoons Self Rising flour*
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 tablespoons real butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure Vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons mini or regular semi sweet chocolate chips

For Optional Fresh Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


For the Mug Cakes

  1. In a medium bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the flour, cocoa, sugar and salt. Add the butter, vanilla, milk, egg and chocolate chips, and whisk just to combine.
  2. Divide the batter equally between two coffee mugs. Place mugs, one at a time, in a microwave and microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stopping the microwave after 1 1/2 minutes to check cake. Serve mug cakes warm with fresh whipped cream or your favorite frosting.

For Optional Fresh Whipped Cream

  1. Pour the whipping cream in a mixing bowl and add the powdered sugar. Using a mixer, mix on high speed for one minute until soft peaks form. Serve immediately or refrigerate.


  • Microwaves vary. The mug cakes were done after just 1 1/2 minutes in my microwave.
  • Do not fill mugs more than half full of batter or the batter will rise over the edge of the cup while in the microwave.
  • *If you don’t have self-rising flour don’t worry, make your own.  Combine 1 cup all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
