Mug cake question . Pics on page 3

Do you think it's safe to have while preg ? You only microwave it for about a min and it has an egg in it .. And have you found a good recipe that doesn't turn out gross ? I am craving chocolate ;)

I like this recipe, it was pretty damn good! I topped it with mallow fluff, haha. (Then I gained 10 pounds.)

Another good one! http://blogs.babble.com/family-kitchen/2011/04/05/chocolate-fluffernutter-mug-cake/

I find putting in the nutella or peanut butter help keep the cake more moist so it's not like eating dried sandpaper.

The egg gets cooked, if that's what you're worried about.

K thank you :) I appreciate it . I didn't know it was possible to cook an egg full in a microwave . Nice to know ;)


Quoting frndlyfn:

Boxed cake has egg usually..... But i get what you are saying......  I only know the egg wont be raw since i make egg mcmuffins at home rather than pay for them.  I use a mug and put in the whisked eggs with herbs and a bit of butter to cook in microwave.

The cake would be very mushy and icky if the egg didnt cook.


Quoting prdmomnarmywife:

it's not like a boxed cake , it's flour , sugar , egg ect .., I didn't know if the egg would be raw after only being in the microwave for such a short time .. I do not have any :/


Quoting frndlyfn:

Everything is cooked in it so yes it is safe.  I do not do chocolate cakes though so no recipes.  Why not make hot cocoa or something?

Yup, they are the same (I went back and looked at comments after posting and editing with pictures.  I've made both of them and both are decent.  Not the best cake you've ever had in your life, but they definitely get you that chocolate fix!

What You’ll Need

Buying hot chocolate mix in bulk saves having to rip open the little packages.
Buying hot chocolate mix in bulk saves having to rip open the little packages.
This mug has the recipe printed right on it.


A microwave oven

A large microwavable mug

A tablespoon for measuring

4 Tablespoons flour

9 Tablespoons hot chocolate mix

1 pinch of salt

1 egg

3 Tablespoons water

3 Tablespoons oil

Cooking Spray



Makes enough for one enormous serving.

Combine the Ingredients


Spray a little cooking spray into the mug.


Measure out the flour, hot chocolate mix and salt into the mug. Stir.





Crack the egg into the mug. Stir a bit after adding the egg so the cup doesn't overflow.







Add water and oil.

Stir until thoroughly moistened. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the mug with your spoon to avoid any leftover pockets of dry ingredients.


Put the mug in the microwave on high and set the timer for 3 minutes.

As it bakes, a cylinder of cake will start to rise out of the mug. Way cool!

When done, it will settle back into the mug.The handle of the mug may be hot, so use a potholder to remove it from the microwave.


Tip your cake cylinder out of the mug into a dish. Your cake may look a little damp and wrinkled. This is normal.





Use a fork to break it up into quarters. This will allow steam in the center to escape. Arrange so that the more attractive interior of the cake is showing.

as long as it's not soggy anywhere it's good to go! i usually let mine go an extra 10-15 seconds so i know it won't be wet.
