Just Microwave! Chocolate Cake for One

Just Microwave! Chocolate Cake for One

This is an easy cake that you can bake in a mug.
It's simple but guaranteed to make you happy.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Plain flour
3 tablespoons
Powdered hot chocolate
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
Chocolate (finely chopped and crushed)
about 20 g
3 tablespoons
Vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons


1. Combine flour, cocoa, sugar and chocolate in a tall mug and stir with chopsticks.
2. Add the beaten egg and mix well. Pour milk and oil, and mix some more. Microwave for 2-2.5 minutes at 700W.
3. When the cake stops rising, stop the microwave, and check with a skewer to see if it's completely cooked through.
4. To prevent the mixture from boiling over, keep your eye on it while microwaving, and turn the microwave off accordingly. I used a 400 ml mug.

Story Behind this Recipe

I created this recipe because I wanted a small portion of cake and I wanted to make something quickly! I didn't want to do a lot of dishes and I didn't feel like using the oven in this heat!
