After finding a great quick cake in a cup recipe I decided to make it gluten free and it turned out great.

Heaven! I made this tonight after craving something chocolatey all day. This is so good and rich and super chocolatey, reminds me more of a really good brownie. I made it in a single serve baking dish instead of a coffee cup and it's huge! This one will be a favorite go-to sweet tooth emergency dessert for me. Thanks for sharing the recipe Chef, I am highly appreciative!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 tablespoons gluten-free flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips


  1. In a large coffee cup mix together dry ingredients. Stir in wet ingredients. Mix well. Add chocolate chips. Put the cup in the microwave for 3 minutes high power. Let sit for a minute or two to cool just a bit and enjoy.
  2. We enjoyed this plain but you could always put a gluten free frosting or powdered sugar on the top.
