Two Minutes Instant Mug Cake (Recipe)

It happens all the time that as soon as you finish your dinner, you urge to have some dessert and you realize that there is nothing that can be taken as Dessert! Or sometimes it happens that you suddenly come up with something that calls a celebration, but you don’t have anything for the celebration. But now you will have something for such occasions, by simply using very few ingredients (most of which are usually there in our kitchen, all the time!), and just one mug, and that use less than 5 minutes! This is a great option when you have a surprise visit by your relative

So let’s start with ingredients:


2 tablespoons all purpose flour (maida)

1-1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1-1/2 teaspoons sugar (adjust to taste)

2 teaspoons mini choco chips (add an extra teaspoon if you like)

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

a pinch of salt

2 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon oil


  •  In a microwave safe mug add all the dry ingredients – flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt & choco chips, mix with a spoon and then add in the wet ingredients – milk n oil and stir well so that all ingredients are uniformly mixed and there are no lumps.
  • Place it in the microwave oven and microwave for 1 minute. Depending on the type of microwave used you may require to add another 5- 10 seconds to the bake time. Mine took exactly 1 min 10 seconds.
  • Let it cool down for a while and serve as it is or with whipped cream



  1. This is chocolate cake, you can make it of whatever flavor you want by simply replacing cocoa powder with flavor you want, and chocolate chips with fresh fruits.
