Step 1: Ingredients

There are only 7 ingredients for this cake and you can make them on at a time or make a large jar of ingredients ahead of time! Here is what you will need for one mug cake.

Step 2: Making the Cake

The making of the cake is faster than gathering the ingredients and the baking is even faster than that.

  • Place the butter in the mug and place in the microwave to melt. This will warm the mug and help the cake bake faster, like 60 seconds is too long lol!
  • Take all the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and add them to the mug.
  • Use the little whisk and mix well.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.

Thats it!!

Step 3: Baking the Cake

All the har work is done and now just stick it in your microwave for 45 - 60 seconds. This will depend upon the power rating of your microwave. The first couple of times you make these you will have to find the perfect time for your microwave. If you want to dress it up top it with some unsweetened whipped cream and a dust of cocoa powder. Please enjoy and post any variations you come up with!!
