  • Google: Chocolate Cake in a mug.

    Zillions of recipes come up.

  • 1.) 4 tablespoons flour

    2.) 4 tablespoons sugar
    3.) 2 tablespoons cocoa
    4.) 1 egg
    5.) 3 tablespoons milk
    6.) 3 tablespoons oil
    7.) 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
    8.) a small splash of vanilla extract
    9.) 1 large coffee mug

    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 (high).
    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.

  • I tried that recipe and didn't like it at all. Maybe it's just me, but it didn't taste right. I think the recipe needs salt or something.

  • Cafe Kim commented that there were a lot of bad reviews about her cake in a mug, so she posted this recipe to see if people liked it better:

    Microwave Chocolate Brownie in a Mug

    4 tablespoons flour

    4 tablespoons sugar

    2 tablespoons cocoa

    Dash of salt

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    2 tablespoons water

    1/4 teaspoon vanilla

    Whisk together dry ingredients in a large coffee mug. Add oil, water and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Microwave on high for 1.5 to 2 minutes. It should not be quite set in the center.

    This is apparently the origin of the recipe. It has a couple hundred comments, and some variations. Many of the people who tried it, for example, were concerned about the 3 tablespoons of oil.
