WHAT’S A MUG CAKE?

Mug cakes are genius! The batter is whisked together quickly, poured into a coffee mug, and popped in the microwave for a little over a minute. You go from ‘cravings to satisfied’ in less than five minutes flat! This little beauty is moist and has double the chocolate because I use both cacao and chocolate chips in this recipe.

AND THERE ARE NO LEFTOVERS!

Friends, let’s face it, we don’t need to slowly whittle away at a cake for days after baking. That’s why I love to offer cakes that are ‘mini’. Simply satisfy your craving and move on without overindulging. Find my Orange Upside Down Mini Cake here and my Vanilla Buttermilk Mini Cake with Berries here.

PREFER A LITTLE ICING ON YOUR MUG CAKE?

As an option, I offer this cake with a quick drizzle of creamy chocolate for a quick frosting. Whether you choose to keep your cake as is or add that little extra chocolate goodness is up to you. Either way, you will be really happy!

MAKING IT GLUTEN FREE AND JUST AS GOOD!

Not all gluten free flours are created equal. We recommend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour for GF baking. The grains aren’t just gluten free, they are soaked for easier digestion!
