  • 3 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla
  • chocolate chips


  • Spray the bottom of a microwave save mug with cooking spray.
  • Add flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt to your mug. Stir until all dry ingredients are combined well.
  • Add milk, oil, and vanilla, and stir until smooth. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the mug.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on top, or stir them into the cake batter.
  • Cook in the microwave for 70-90 seconds, or until cake is just set. Because all microwaves are different, it’s difficult to give an exact cook time. Start with 70 seconds and look to see if it is set. Add another 10 seconds if it needs to cook longer.
  • Remove from microwave and allow to cool for one minute before serving. Serve as is or top it with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
