There are times that you really need a chocolate fix and a chocolate bar just won’t cut it. That’s when you need to reach for this Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake recipe. A hybrid between a cake and a brownie, it’s made in just a few minutes flat! And it’s the most energy conscious and efficient recipe ever! Just grab yourself a microwavable mug, some glorious Food Thoughts Organic Cocoa Powder and a few Food Thoughts Luxury Dark Chocolate Chips and there you have it: the most chocolatey emergency fix around.
This Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake can be adapted to please all taste buds and diets. Replace the Dark Chips with Food Thoughts Luxury White Chocolate Chips for a glorious microwave white chocolate mug cake. For a vegan friendly version, use a dairy free milk option and omit the egg. You can still use our Dark Chocolate Chips as they are plant based. Yet, if you prefer a more milky chocolate flavour, swap them with Food Thoughts Oat Mylk Chocolate Chips, winners of Great Taste award 2022. Whether you choose to have it with cream, ice cream, yoghurt or just as it is – this is a divine fast-track chocolate treat.

You will need
Combine the flour, sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the egg with the milk. Set aside.
Choose a good-sized microwavable mug. Add the oil and 30g of the dark chocolate chips and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir with a spoon and microwave again for another 10 seconds.
Add the dry and wet ingredients into the mug and mix well with a spoon until you have a smooth batter. Add 15g of the remaining dark chocolate chips and a pinch of salt and stir again.
Microwave on medium-high power (500W) for 1 minute and 30 seconds. The mug cake should be set on the top. Sprinkle the remaining 5g of dark chocolate chips and enjoy with single cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream of some plain yoghurt. Simple, beautiful pleasures.
