Lazy Girl Recipes: Cake in a mug

I was craving cake one night, but didn’t want to bake an entire cake, or wait an hour, so I decided to try a recipe I saw on pinterest a few months ago. I’ve heard horror stories of it exploding in the microwave, so I was fully prepared to clean cake mix from all corners of my microwave – but I was pleasantly surprised to find this recipe that worked.


  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Handful of chocolate chips
  • 1 egg


  1. Mix all the wet ingredients together in the mug
  2. Add the dry ingredients
  3. Microwave for 2 minutes. That’s it!

Tip: to make it a double chocolate cake, add 2 tbsp of cocoa powder.

Enjoy! 🙂
