The Coffee Mug Cake Recipe

This recipe gets rave reviews! So lets get to microbakin!

  • 2 tablespoons self raising flour (1 oz | 30 g)
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener (your choice
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate cake (your choice box cake)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon butter (reduced fat, melted, or coconut oil)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (chocolate almond milk is delicious!)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tablespoon mini chocolate chips ( could use unsweetened if you fancy!)


  1. Grab a ceramic coffee mug and spray with cooking oil spray. Into the mug, add in the flour, sweetener (or sugar), cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine. To that, add your melted butter, milk and vanilla.
  2. (Optional): Fold in 1/2 tablespoon of chocolate chips. Mix them through. Top with the remaining chocolate chips.

Minute Microwave Method:

  1. Bake in your microwave on 'Quick' or High' setting for 40 seconds. Open the door and gently touch the top with your finger tip. If it's still a little underdone in the middle, bake for another 10 seconds until cooked through (not too long, as the cake will continue cooking in the mug once it's removed). Be careful, whether this is full of sugar or not - it is going to be HOT!
