Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe


No matter what you are making, you always need to have some tips and side notes to be successful.

  • Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing can cause gluten to form and will toughen the cake. That is why you should try your best to use cake flour or other low-gluten flours.
  • Don’t overbake the cake. Overbaking can make the cake tough and rubbery and can result in deflation of the cake.
  • Make sure to measure the ingredients properly and use grams more often. If you add to much flour, the cake would become too tough and rubbery. If you add too much baking powder, it will make the cake collapse because of the overrise.



  • 2 1/2 tbsp. (20g) flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. (32g) sugar
  • 1 tbsp. (9g) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1.2g) baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. (31g) milk
  • 1 tbsp. (15g) oil
  • 1 egg


  1. You first dump in flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a mug or small bowl and mix.
  2. You then add the milk, oil, and egg into the mixture and stir until JUST COMBINED. DON’T OVERMIX.
  3. Microwave the cake on high for 1:00-1:30. My microwave is 1000 watts.
  4. Let the cake cool.
  5. Serve with your favorite toppings.
