Chocolate Mug Cake

We are 15 days into 2016 already, a very Happy New Year y’all..

Sorry for being MIA, not that you guys missed me (or did you?)

I was homesick AF.. I just wanted to stay away from everything. No mood for anything kind of days.. But now I’m back and I feel much better.

Speaking of ‘no mood for anything’, I din’t even cook much last couple of days.. I had gone from ‘live-to-eat’ to ‘eat-to-live’.

So on one of those days, when I got bored of having just hot cocoa for breakfast, I was in mood to make this mug cake.


Mug cakes are saviors.. and in my case they’re also mood-lifters simply cos 1.  it’s easy  2. it’s yummy  3. you can make it in a cinch and let’s not forget they’re fancy!!

I don’t make it often but I have tried this recipe like 5 times and I love how easy it is and not dry like other recipes.. If you have survived my rants and reached till here, Thank you and here’s the recipe..

You’ll need

  1. All purpose flour- 1/4th cup
  2. Cocoa powder- 2 tbsp
  3. Granulated sugar- 2 tbsp
  4. Milk- A lil more than 1/4 cup
  5. Oil- 2 tbsp (I used canola)
  6. Baking powder- 1/4 tsp


  • In a microwave safe mug, add all the dry ingredients and stir well so that there are no lumps.
  • Add in milk and oil and mix well.
  • Make sure the batter level is not more than  2/3rd of your mug. It needs some space to rise.
  • Microwave for 70 seconds on high.
  • And that’s it, you can have it as it is or add a dollop of Nutella.
