Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

(can be vegan, gluten free, nut free)

Cake you can make in the microwave… enough said, but I’ll go on. She’s fluffy, spongey, light, simple, and fits perfectly into your favourite mug. I have to say though, taste/texture aside, my favourite part of this recipe is watching it magically puff up in the microwave (without an egg!). Vegan, gluten free, and nut free options available in the notes section below!

Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

  • Cook Time: 1 min
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 mug cake 1x

Description

A fluffy, spongey, light mug cake that can be made in approximately 5 minutes, without the help of an egg! All you need are the ingredients, a mug, and a microwave. Top with whatever you desire!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/3 cup flour* (all-purpose, whole wheat, 1:1 GF all-purpose, buckwheat, oat)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar (white or brown, depending on desired sweetness)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 2/31 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a mug, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and (optional) cinnamon/nutmeg.
  2. Mix in the milk, oil, and vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Cook in microwave for around 1 minute. This time depends on your microwave – I recommend cooking in 10 second intervals after the minute until the cake is cooked through.
  4. Let cool, and top with nuts, coconut, berries, cereal, homemade caramel, whipped cream, homemade nut butter, or whatever you desire!

Notes

*Results will vary depending on which type of flour you use. For the fluffiest/lightest mug cake, use all-purpose. If you would like to use almond flour, I recommend using less milk and oil.

Make it Vegan: Use plant milk & vegan chocolate chips (e.g. Enjoy Life Brand)

Make it Gluten Free: Use gluten free flour (GF 1:1 all-purpose, buckwheat, oat, almond, etc.) and gluten free chocolate chips (e.g. Enjoy Life Brand)

Make it Nut Free: Use a nut free flour and a nut free milk
