Simple chocolate cake for one

Top Review by Nimz1466

Well this certainly tasted like a chocolate cake but it was just so dry. Maybe if I had used the optional chocolate chips it would have been more moist. I cooked in microwave exactly 3 minutes. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2013

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  2. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
  3. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts (high).
  4. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
  5. Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
  6. EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).
