Chocolate Coffee Mug Cake. A very easy, simple, and delicious fluffy mug cake that only takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Perfect as a dessert for one!
Believe it or not, I never thought a mug cake could be delicious. Honestly. I’d see them in pictures and they all looked so flat, super wet like a overly moist brownie and just not like fluffy at all!
But I promise you will NOT be disappointed with my chocolate coffee mug cake recipe. It is fluffy but also very moist. So much that when you cook it in the microwave, the cake is literally popping out as the heat penetrates the ingredients! It’s very exciting to watch, trust me.
It’s best to serve this cake 2 minutes after it’s cooled down a bit so it’s not piping hot as it burns your mouth. If you allow too much time to pass before consuming (1 hour or more), it’ll become slightly dense. But who has the self control to wait 1 hour to eat this chocolate cake in a mug anyway?!
Watch how I made it!
For this recipe
You will need instant coffee, hot chocolate powder, egg, flour, sugar, milk, and avocado oil for my coffee chocolate mug cake.
I’m using Organic Tradition’s Mushroom Focus Fuel Coffee. ps. This is not sponsored by them. I just really enjoy their mushroom coffee as it definitely keeps me focused.
Can I Use any Mug in the microwave?
No. There are certain materials that cannot be used in the microwave. The best is to check the base of your mug and look to see if it’s microwave safe. Usually heat-proof glass and microwave safe ceramics are safe. But any cookware that has speckles of reflective paint (gold, silver) are not. Just do your research first!
Pin for later!
Save my chocolate mug cake with coffee to make later!
