Chocolate Cake in a Mug–Just For You or to Share

It’s hot!  Maybe the kids are gone to grandma’s or to camp.  If you are looking for a dessert just for one or two people, I’ve got it covered.  And this recipe only takes 5 minutes in the microwave!  This recipe is so simple you can practically memorize it.  Or, perhaps, I make it too often!  Anyway, you are going to find so many times this recipe will come in handy.  When a friend stops by in the afternoon, and you don’t have any gf goodies, don’t be worried.  You can whip this up and share it with a friend in minutes.

It really tastes best slightly warm.  Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have a deluxe treat.  I find that it is just too much for me so I recommend sharing.  But I don’t judge.  I won’t know if you really, really need a chocolate fix, and eat it all yourself.  Enjoy!

GF 5 Minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug!
  • 4 tablespoons Baking Free™gluten-free All Purpose Flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (gluten-free)
  • 1 dash vanilla extract
  1. In a large mug (about a 12 ounce coffee mug) place the dry ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  2. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips, if using and the vanilla extract. Mix again.
  3. Put the mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
  4. The cake will rise over the top of the mug--don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little and tip the cake out onto a plate, if desired. This makes enough to serve two if you feel like sharing. Best when served warm.
