Cup of Cake

Have you ever wanted cake for dessert but didn't think about it until the last minute, then only to discover that you didn't even have a cake mix on hand?Well, if you have a coffee mug, a measuring spoon, a microwave and these basic ingredients, in a matter of minutes you can have your cake - and eat it too.
Cake in a Cup Recipe
4 Tablespoons Flour
4 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons Milk (I use chocolate)
3 Tablespoons Oil
Measure the dry ingredients directly into the cup and stir to blend. Add the egg, milk and oil to the dry ingredients in the cup, stirring until well mixed.
Microwave on high for three minutes and let rest for one.
Tip the cake out onto a plate and serve. This recipe makes two servings, so enjoy.
Step-by-step, how to make a Cup of Cake

Cake couldn't get much easier or faster than this. Plus it doesn't have that funny aftertaste that mixes or those Betty Crocker Warm Delights have, and it's a mere fraction of the price.


  1. I'm a big fan of this recipe. In fact, I'm the author of a book called "101 Recipes for Microwave Mug Cakes" which provides baking tips and additional recipes for microwave mug cakes. See it online at

  2. Wow that is such a neat idea. The cake looks rich and deep.

    I don't have a microwave as my kitchen is so small. But I will sure share this recipe with friends who want a quick chocolate cake fix.

    Thank you for sharing.

  3. That is very dangerous information! I may regret learning this but for now - thank you for posting!
