Introduction: 5-Minute Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Based on the popularity of the 5-Minute Chocolate Cake, I decided to experiment with a recipe for a 5-Minute Chocolate Chip Cake!  You can swap the chocolate chips for any other flavor, or leave them out entirely and make a spice cake from it instead.  Either way, this is a great base for your 5-Minute Cake home experiments.

As I explain in the 5-Minute Chocolate Cake recipe, I did a lot of experimenting to determine the proper amount of egg to use.  This recipe uses slightly less sugar and oil in an attempt to lighten it up a bit.  I still prefer the chocolate variety, but this one isn't bad when you've only got a few minutes and really need some cake!  


Digital Scale


2 tablespoons beaten egg
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon of baking powder 
pinch salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons milk
Splash vanilla
3 tablespoons chocolate chips or any spices/flavorings to taste


Mix ingredients very well in your mug.  

Microwave between 90 seconds and 4 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. It's ok to check in on it from time to time and pop it back in for more time. Mine took 3 full minutes, crested over the top of the mug, and then sunk again.

Serve with ice cream!
