  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar

  • Optional: chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles for topping


  1. In a microwave-safe mug or small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix well with a fork or spoon until everything is evenly combined.
  2. Add the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps.
  3. If desired, mix in any additional toppings like chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles.
  4. Microwave the cake on high for 1-2 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. Check after 1 minute to see if the cake is done. It should be firm to the touch and slightly pulling away from the edges of the mug.
  5. Let the cake cool for a minute or two before digging in. Enjoy your quick and delicious microwave cake straight from the mug!

Note: Microwave cooking times may vary, so keep an eye on your cake to prevent it from overcooking. Adjust the cooking time as needed based on your microwave’s wattage.
