Servings 1 mug cake


  • 6 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ +⅛ tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp castor sugar
  • 6 tbsp milk at room temperature
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped chocolate (I used Cadbury Dairy Milk)
  • 3 tbsp Nutella


  • In a 300ml microwave-safe mug, add all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and castor sugar. Using a fork, combine everything together.
  • Then pour milk and oil into the mug. And give it a good mix. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Add chopped chocolate pieces and Nutella. Mix again.
  • Add a few pieces of chopped chocolate on top of the cake batter.
  • Microwave it for 1 minute. Then check if it is fully baked. The cake should feel fluffy and springy to the touch.
  • If the cake hasn’t set then microwave it in 10-second intervals until cooked through. But don’t overdo it. As it might become too dry or burn.
  • Every microwave is different. So I will suggest you start with 1 minute and then continue microwaving it in 10-second intervals. My microwave is 900W and it took 1 minute and 40 seconds to bake this mug cake.
  • Then take it out of the microwave and let it cool down for a couple of minutes. Then it is ready to be devoured!
