Microwave Chocolate Cake Recipe – Delicious Cake in 5 Minutes!

Sharing is caring!

First of all, let me just say that this picture does not do this recipe justice!!!  It tastes soooo much better than this picture looks.

This recipe is courtesy of my friend Janet. It is the perfect solution for those times you are craving a sweet baked dessert and are short on time! It’s also nice on hot summer days when you don’t want to heat your oven or in instances when you don’t have access to an oven – i.e. college dorm, extended stay hotel suite, camper, etc.

¼ C. flour
¼ C. sugar
2 Tbsp.cocoa
Dash of salt
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
Dash vanilla extract

Whisk dry ingredients in a large mug with a fork. Add egg, milk, oil and vanilla and mix well with a spoon. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Microwave mug for approximately 4 minutes for a 600 watt microwave or 3 minutes for a 1000 watt microwave – adjust time as necessary for other sizes. Let cool slightly before eating either straight out of the mug or dumped out onto a plate. (It makes a BIG serving, so you may want to divide it on plates for two to share.)

Also tastes great if you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to mug on top of finished cake and top with chocolate syrup/hot fudge.
