If you have been following me for a while then you know how I like my desserts with easy recipes. I literally start panicking when I see the long list of ingredients with names that I am hearing for the first time. Therefore, when I came across this microwave mug cake recipe while surfing Pinterest I was intrigued. After making some adjustments to the original recipe, I came up with this version of chocolate muffin in a cup that meets my expectations to the bone.

The hardest part, surprisingly, was to get the ratio of ingredients right for the cups that I had. My husband is a loyal cocoa fan. I could not help but take into account a serving for him, too. Long story short, the amount of mixture should be enough to use for two cups with a total volume of 450 ml. Make sure not to overfill the cups to prevent leaking of the batter as it will expand in size.

Do not limit yourself to the type of filling you choose to add to a microwave chocolate mug cake. Choose among your favorite type of chocolate, nuts, dried fruits and berries, tiny marshmallows, etc. Or do not choose and add a little bit of everything.

Chocolate Mug Cake in Microwave

I can’t stress enough how this dessert is worth your attention and time. This quick microwave brownie dessert is only possible only to make with cocoa powder. Usually, only chocolate muffins are baked in the microwave, because the usual pastry does not look appetizing at all. Looking for other quick tasty dessert, you may also like:

How to make chocolate muffin in microwave:

  • If you combine ingredients straight in a cup, I found that it is sufficient to add liquids first. In this way, no flour no cocoa will stick to the bottom. Pour milk and oil into the cup.

Combine all the liquids

  • Now, add all the dry ingredients one after another. To get the muffin fluffier try sifting them through a sieve. First to go is baking powder, then flour, and finally cocoa powder.

Add baking powder

Add cocoa powder

  • Finally, add sugar.

Add sugar

  • Give the mixture a nice stir until smooth and well combined.

Mix

  • If you want to add some crunchiness to the dessert, now will be a perfect time to throw some chocolate chips and nuts of your choice. Mine always will be walnuts as their extinct taste complements the chocolate perfectly. Mix the content of the cup one more time.

Add nuts and chocolate

  • All microwaves are different and can have different maximum capacities and power levels. For a microwave with 800 watts as 100% power, the cooking time of cake in a cup will be around two minutes. I would highly advise you to set the timer for 1 minute first. Check the muffin if the top is still sticky add another 30 seconds; check once again and add 30 seconds more if necessary. If you overcook the cake, it will lose its moist and tender texture.

Microwave for 2 minutes

  • Let the microwave mug cake cool down a bit before serving! Sprinkle some icing sugar over the top. You also can have it with fresh berries, whipped cream, and even ice cream. Enjoy your dessert!
