The Famous Cake in a Mug

One of my sisters found this recipe on a wonderful blog, Chocolate Covered Katie called One Minute Chocolate Cake. We fondly dubbed it "Cake in a Mug" after enjoying it countless afternoons and evenings while on vacation. We figured it probably has about 230 cals because we add some extra sweetness. It makes for  an easy and delicious dessert. You can also make it a mocha cake as well by adding decaf coffee grinds. Here is the recipe link with nutrition facts as well. One Minute Choc Cake . We add a small amount of semi sweet chocolate chips to the batter. It makes it extra molteness and chocolatly. Mmmm! This makes my "me" time so much sweeter.

One Minute Chocolate Cake

  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons spelt flour (or white, or even peanut flour)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar (pr evaporated cane juice)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stevia packet (or 1 tablespoon more sugar)
  • 2-3 tsp coconut oil or vegetable oil (Edit: many commenters have said it still tastes good if you sub applesauce or mashed banana. But I can’t personally vouch for the results if you make that substitution.)
  • 3 tablespoons milk of choice (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Combine dry ingredients and mix very, very well. Add liquid, stir, then transfer to a little dish, ramekin, or even a coffee mug. Microwave 30-40 seconds. If you don’t want to eat it straight out of the dish, be sure to spray your dish first (and then wait for it to cool before trying to remove it).

Getting starting!

A little bit of vanilla ice creams makes everything even more yummy 

Enjoy guilt free!! 


  1. So yummy. I could eat this every day! I didn't add the chocolate chips and it wasn't as rich as when Cate made it for me so that must have been it. I will do that next time. Like, probably tonight.

  2. Yes I think I will go have one right now!!
