"Who doesn't love a simple chocolate cake?"

Why I Love This Recipe

Everybody loves chocolate and it can be a nice way to unwind after a long day of classes. This recipe is simple and yields delicious results with minimal mess and work.

Recipe Joke: What kind of cake is never on time?


Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoon granulated sugar (you can add 1 tbsp. more if you like it a bit sweeter)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. milk
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon hazelnut chocolate spread or mini chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

Whisk in the milk and vegetable oil until all ingredients are combined and the batter has no clumps.

Pour batter into a microwave-safe mug. Mine was a 14-ounce mug. You want enough headspace for the cake to rise without pouring over.

Add hazelnut chocolate spread in the middle of the batter or mini chocolate chips. Just drop it in the middle, no need to push it down and sink it in the batter. It does that on its own when it cooks! :)

Place a paper towel into the microwave and set the mug on top (this is to catch any batter if your mug cake overflows).

Microwave mug cake for 70 seconds on high (May vary depending on microwave)

Carefully remove from microwave and enjoy it!
