Microwave Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake

Microwave Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake is one of my new favourites. The beauty of this recipe is you will never have to worry that your sweet tooth will go unsatisfied again with a microwave cake you can make in minutes.


This Microwave Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake could not be more authentic. Made from the usual suspects for a chocolate cake recipe — like flour, chocolate, butter, sugar etc — this decadent chocolate cake with that special soft texture is the perfect end to any day. Now instead of making a whole cake you can have just 1 serving in no time at all. And this cake batter can sit in its little mug in the fridge for up to 3 days, so you can enjoy a single-serving treat anytime!

For this recipe, I have replaced the butter with olive oil and sugar with honey to make it a little guilt free. But feel free to retain it in its original form. Both ways it tastes awesome! 

What is a mug cake?

A cake that is made in a mug! It’s great because you don’t need to whip out a bunch of tools to make this simple mug cake.

Can this mug cake be made in the oven?

No, this recipe was solely developed for the microwave.

Can we make this with all purpose flour?

You can, but I tested it with all purpose flour and it just came out spongy and not the texture I wanted. For a mug cake, I wanted a moist and gooey texture instead of fluffy cake like texture.

Choice of mugs?

You can use regular 200 ml glass or ceramic tea cups which are microwave safe. Here I have used 320 ml transparent mugs which are great for displaying mug cakes and desserts. 

Serves - 2
Ingredients:
2 tbsp oat flour,
4 tbsp almond flour,
1 tbsp cocoa powder,
1/2 tsp baking powder,
4 tbsp light olive oil/unsalted butter,

3 tbsp chopped chocolate, try to keep it as half inch squares,
Few chocochips or chocolate pieces for garnish,
Pinch salt

Method:
  1. Grind regular oats and almonds together to make the flour.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients one by one and mix well.
  4. Mix in the chocolate pieces as well.
  5. Pour into 2 mugs 3/4th of the way.
  6. Top with few chocolate pieces or chocochips. 
  7. Microwave it for about 1- 1.5mins (60-90 secs).
  8. Take it out and allow it cool down for about 15 mins at least.
  9. Top it with ice cream and/or chocolate sauce and enjoy.
  10. Tastes good if served chilled

This Microwave Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake is one of the easiest dessert recipes you’ll ever make and you’ll never make another mug cake again after you try my recipe!
