I made this yummy Chocolate Mug Cake to celebrate 2nd Blogiversary for my blog. It is very simple recipe yet tasty too. You will need only 2 minutes to make this delicious cake. I doubled the below mentioned recipe to make 3 small mug cakes. Read on for the detailed recipe. Thank you.

Ingredients you will need,

1/4 cup All purpose flour / Maida

5 tbsp Sugar

1 large Egg

3 tbsp Milk

3 tbsp Vegetable oil

2 tbsp Cocoa powder

1/4 tsp of Vanilla essence

A pinch of Salt

Butter for greasing

Make : 1 big mug size

Step 1: Method

Take all the ingredients (expect butter) in a bowl, mix it all without any lumps.

Grease mug with butter.

Pour the batter into greased mug.

Leave 1/4th of space on top of mug for cake raising.Microwave it for 2 minutes.

That's all mug cake is ready.

Note : Microwave timing will be slightly differ from different microwave. If its not cooked in the centre, keep 20 to 30 more seconds.

Step 2: Serve !

I love to have this cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Add your favorite topping and relish it :)

When I try this recipe the cake gets burned black inside but stays raw on the outside.

Does anyone knows what to do ?

Use a less powerful option on your microwave!

I already tried that, but than it takes much much more time than 2 minutes and it still gets burned inside before it is done on the outside. :(

Could it be caused by the fact that my microwave is not working on a lower constant power but is switching on and off (at lowest power it switches on for 3 seconds and than off again every 30 seconds) ?

Try using a different cup. It maybe too thick that it is not transferring hit correctly.

One box of angel food cake mix (NO substitute!) one box of other flavor cake mix (i.e. chocolate, devil's food, strawberry etc. BUT NOT pound cake). Directions: combine both dry cake mixes, store covered at room temp.,

per mug/cup 3 Tbsp. dry mix, 2 Tbsp. water, 1 minute in microwave. Mix well in mug to remove lumps before microwaving

This recipe is also called 3-2-1 cake for obvious reasons.

I made it! But i have no pictures because I ate all of it lol

I was having company over and thought it would be faster to cook the (quadrupled) batter altogether than individually in mugs so i poured it into an 8x8 pan and microwaved it for about 10 minutes. It cooked all the way through which was a relief, and is very good with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup.

This looks great, EXCEPT, if I was going to go through all this trouble (all the ingredients) I would just make a regular size cake. I couldn't stop eating after one cup and would need to eat more!
