5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Submitted by kandieznkisses

Only takes 5 minutes to make, which is what makes it the most dangerous cake recipe in the world! Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!


  • 4 tbls flour
  • 4 tbls sugar
  • 2 tbls cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbls milk
  • 3 tbls oil
  • 3 tbls chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 dash vanilla extract
  • 1 large coffee mug (microwave safe)
  • 1 scoop ice cream (optional)


Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
Add a scoop of ice cream if desired.
EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
