Chocolate Microwave Cake

Finally...a microwave cake recipe I would make again. Believe me, I've searched and searched for a good one. On Saturday, my twitter feed had one from Food Network about an instant chocolate cake. I had all the ingredient so I went for it.

Whisk 1/4 cup flour, 5 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons milk, 3 tablespoons vegetable oil and a dash of vanilla extract and salt in a large mug until smooth. Microwave until puffed, about 2 minutes.

We made this in a cappucino mug because it was so much and I'm glad we did. It puffed up and would have overflowed in a regular mug. Whitney and I split it so this makes enough for two.


  1. I shouldn't know this information :)

  2. This looks delicious! I too should not know this information. It just is so simple to make, I could get carried away.


  3. Have you ever made 3-2-1 cake? You mix angel food cake mix and another cake mix of your choosing. 3 T cake mix, 2 T water, in the microwave for 1 minute, and you have your own personal sized cake.
