When you need a quick chocolate fix - 90 second chocolate mug cake


quick chocolate mug cake

Picture this... it's a Friday night, you're staying in after a long, busy week and you've opened and closed the fridge door at least 5 times in hope that some chocolate will magically appear. All you want is a couple of squares as you chill on the couch with your glass of red. It's your moment to pause and connect back in with yourself after a hectic week and let's face it - you deserve a little treat. (And I'm all about the 'everything in moderation' non-diet!) 

We've all been there - I sure have and I've even resorted to eating bitter dark cooking chocolate when I was desperate, so there's absolutely no judging here. 
With this recipe, you can now give your fridge door a bit of a break! When you're craving a sweet treat but you've got nothing in your house - just turn to this super quick and simple recipe for a fast chocolate microwave mug cake. You can be diving in to a warm chocolately cup of goodness in no time at all. 


And the best part? This recipe is super adaptable! No cocoa? Well make yourself a vanilla cake and throw in some choc chips - or do them both and have a double choc party for 1. You can also add in Nutella, almond or peanut butter, sultanas or chopped nuts if you feel like mixing it up a little. This recipe suits the size of the MWD tumblers so if you haven't wrapped your hands around one of these yet, you can shop them here. It's not just tea + coffee that tastes better in a handmade cup.

mug cake ingredients

NOTE: I wouldn't try this in a smaller cup because if I'm completely honest, when I was testing and adjusting this recipe - there were quite a few disasters and mug cake volcanoes. And no one wants to clean up that mess! OK less talking more doing... and eating. 






3 Tbsp SR flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa
3 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp butter (melted)
1/4 Tsp vanilla essence


Mix dry ingredients together in a MWD tumbler. Add in wet ingredients and stir until well combined. Heat in microwave for 60 seconds. If needed, cook for further 20 second batches until set. Let cake stand for a few minutes to cool down. 
** Microwave times will vary. Recipe suits the size of MWD tumblers but please keep an eye on the microwave to ensure the cake doesn't overflow.
