Tasty Tuesday Easy Dark Chocolate Mug Cake


For those of use who are NOT baking like a mad woman this holiday season and just want a little something sweet.

Do you long for something sweet but you can’t be bothered to make an ENTIRE cake or pan of brownies? I love this solution I found online….

A Dark Chocolate Mug Cake is the perfect answer and beyond easy to whip up in under 10 minutes. No oven required! Check out the easy steps below to see how easy it actually is. It serves one or two, depending on how sharp your sweet tooth is.  I love it with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or ice cream! Some days just require cake and ice cream, am I right?


  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons milk (I use almond milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons flour (I use almond or gluten free flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder


Place the chocolate and milk in a 16 ounce mug and microwave for 45 seconds. Stir to combine.

Add the vanilla, oil, and sugar and stir to combine.

Whisk in the eggs, flour and baking powder and mix until smooth.

Let sit for 5 minutes.

Place the mug on a paper plate and microwave for 75 seconds.

The mixture will rise up like a souffle and then fall once out of the microwave (hence the paper plate to prevent any spillage)

Doesn’t it sound YUMMY?  What is your simple, quick and easy solution for your sweet tooth?  Remember to share your recipes with us

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
