cocoa cake

I made a couple individualized cakes tonight for a dessert- Trav was craving something sweet- and this was small, chocolate and warm. Perfect.

You just mix all the ingredients (at end of post) together and then heat the mug/cup in the microwave for 2 min. That’s it!

I am lame for two reasons. One, I don’t like chocolate (which alienates me horribly from my sex) and secondly because I do not have the recipe near me to write here for you. But I will try my best to write it down for you from memory:

1 egg, 3 T of veggie oil, 2 T of cocoa powder, 1/4 C flour, 4 T suger and 3 T of milk. Hah! I think I that’s it!

Just mix and microwave.

I splashed a little salt on top for the sweet/salty combo. Bad idea. Don’t do it.

One batch allowed for two of these cups. Just fill 1/2-3/4 of way. Dust with any remaining cocoa powder. You can really personalize these by adding flavors, soaked raisins, Kahlua or white chocolate chips. Just a few ideas.


Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
  1. 4 cups of sugar? Is that a typo? It’s 16x the amount of flour. I’ve never made cake from scratch, but that sounds like an aweful lot of sugar…

  2. Oops! Thank you so much for seeing that! lol Fixed it- thanks to you!

  3. I’ve made cake in a cup in the microwave before! i like this recipe though. It’s from scratch and cake from scratch is ALWAYS better.
