Pretty sure this is what I'll be doing at 3:00 PM tomorrow

5 minute chocolate mug cake

1 large mug
4 Tbsp. flour
4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1 large egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil
1/4 cup chocolate chips (plus some extra for sprinkling on top when it comes out of the microwave)
a small splash of vanilla extract

1. Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well.

2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

3. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.

4. Add the 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and vanilla extract, and mix again.

5. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high). The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Remove from microwave and sprinkle top of cake with chocolate chips.


  1. Why wait until 3pm? That looks good for breakfast!

  2. Looks yummy...It's 4 p.m. at my house.....I'm assuming you need chocolate about that time of the day too??

  3. Oh this is brilliant! I'm linking to this one! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. This looks yummy!! So yummy, I blogged about it because I am having a nothing day and nothing looks better to me on a nothing day than a mug of warm chocolate goodness! Thanks!
