3 tsp all-purpose flour/Maida
3 tsp castor/powdered sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 baking powder
3 tsp milk
3 tsp oil (makes the cake soft)
nutella / chocolate chips for the topping the cake
And yes! most importantly you ll need a ceramic coffee mug/ Styrofoam cup


1. Mix all the dry ingredients and pass it through a sieve to ensure consistent texture.
2. Add milk and oil into the dry ingredients and mix rigorously to get a smooth batter.
3. Fill up the coffee mug/ Styrofoam cup with batter reaching half the size of cup.
4. Add chocolate chips/ chocolate shaving/ dairy milk pieces on the top.
5. Microwave the mug. It takes 1 min and 10 seconds in my microwave. Should take maximum 1 min 20 seconds. Time may vary depending upon the voltage. Best trick is to wait till you see steam and smell of hot brownie coming out of microwave.
6. Voila! Mug cake is ready. Enjoy your mug cake hot as it tends to dry pretty soon. Add nutella on the top, put pieces of dairy milk… be creative and relish this quick fix of your sweet tooth 🙂
