Microwave Coffee Cup Cake

Microwave coffee cup cake

If you are ever caught short for a dessert, this is a very quick and simple recipe that you can try. It only takes 3 or 4 minutes to make, and is great with ice cream or by itself.



  1. Add all the dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) to your coffee mug and mix with a teaspoon. n.b. your coffee mug must be microwaveable
  2. Add the egg and mix
  3. Add the milk, oil and vanilla essence and mix again. The mixture will be very runny, don’t worry about this
  4. Add the chocolate chips (you don’t have to add these if you want a slightly less fattening cake)
  5. Put the mug in the microwave and cook for 2½ minutes on full power (Category E/1000W, adjust time if your microwave is more/less powerful)
  6. Eat straight from the mug with a long handled spoon
