Fudgy chocolate cake as quick as you can get it.

I can’t be the only one who occasionally gets a hankering for something sweet and chocolatey, but not the kind of hankering where you can wait until the next trip to the bakery or grocery store. Do you want to know what the perfect solution is in those moments? This 5-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake. It takes only basic baking ingredients, a little bit of stirring, and just over a minute in the microwave, and produces an irresistibly ooey-gooey fudgy chocolate cake that’s just big enough for one so you don’t have to share it with another living soul.

Serves 1
3m prep time
2m cook time


3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon chocolate chips
Vanilla ice cream, for serving


In a large mug, whisk together oil, sugar, egg yolk, and milk. Do not grease mug – it will stick but cake won’t rise if mug is greased.

Whisk in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Microwave for 75 seconds. Top should look set, but center should be fudge.

Let cool 1 minute, top with ice cream and enjoy!
