Chocolate Mug Cake – the recipe from Cooks but good


Prepare to be surprised, because today I will explain how to use the microwave to prepare a cake in record time. Now very famous throughout the world because it is simple and quick to make: the chocolate Mug Cake, or cake in a cup. Only 1 minute of cooking! With the microwave oven, simply and extremely quickly, it is possible to bake the cake directly in the cup, obtaining a soft but drier and more compact cake, similar to a sponge cake. The Mug Cake is one of those cakes that puts you in a good mood, the dessert for a winter afternoon, when it's raining and cold outside and you don't feel like going out. Curious to try it? You will need a mug and a microwave. And for those with a sweet tooth, just add some chocolate inside to create a delicious warm heart.


Portions 4 tazze da 150-200 ml
  • 120 g farina 00
  • 2 egg room temperature

  • In another bowl, with the help of a whisk, beat the eggs together with the sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.

  • Slowly add the melted butter and continue to whisk for a few seconds.

  • Finally, add the dry ingredients and milk little by little. Mix slowly from bottom to top with a hand whisk. You should obtain a smooth mixture without lumps.

  • Distribute the mixture into the cups. Fill about halfway or a little more.

  • To obtain the dark heart: insert some pieces of chocolate into each cup, without pushing them to the bottom but placing them on the surface.

  • Set the microwave to maximum power and cook for about 1 minute. Your Mug Cake is ready! Serve it with a sprinkling of icing sugar.

If you use the 200 ml capacity cup, extend the cooking by another 30 seconds, max 2 minutes.
