So, I've seen a lot of recipes online for a "5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake". Being the chocoholic that I am, I HAD to try this. Many people said it was coming out rubbery, and just plain nasty. I concluded that this was due to overcooking. I combined several of the recipes, and came up with this:

4 tbsp flour
2 packages of hot chocolate mix (I only used 1, but will use 2 next time)
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 egg
3 tbsp oil
3 tbsp milk
3-4 tbsp of finely chopped chocolate (I used Dove dark chocolate)

I used an extra large mug (about 5 inches in diameter), mixed the dry ingredients, then added the wet and the chocolate.





Then microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, let stand in the microwave for about a minute, nuke 30 more seconds.


Let stand 1-2 minutes, and voila!
 

Chocolate cake!


It was very good! Not wonderful, but definitely good, and perfect for a quick chocolate fix. All it needed was a bit more cocoa and sugar, which is why I said to use 2 hot chocolate packages instead of just one. It was yummy, and I'll certainly make it again. Smiley

Yeah, I made one of these before and it was very dry and not delicious. Yours sounds WAY better though, and I'll be trying it soon. Cake in a mug! Love it!

Tried it with the 2nd package of hot chocolate tonight. It was even better! It made the batter thicker, which ended up making it more moist. All it needed was some chocolate icing and it would have been perfection  Grin

awesome!! I tried the other version and it wasn't good at all.. I'll def. try this one...

one question thought, when you say two packages of hot chocolate mix, how many ounces is it? or tablespoons..?
... I only got hershey's powdered chocolate right now, and its  special dark one... so I guess I'll have to add more sugar..

Hmm... It was probably about 4 tablespoons with the two packages combined, and yes you'd definately need to add sugar! Probably wouldn't taste too great without it haha. Let me know if you try it Smiley

Ok, I just tasted it....

and it was pretty good.. In my sister words after she tasted it.. "uhhmm..its not that bad.. its actually good... a little more sugar maybe" you see i used special dark chocolate mix.. I added like 4 tbsp of sugar.. next time it will be 5, although we added some "dulce de leche" and it was better...

The mix spend the night in the fridge cuz I ran out of eggs so i had to wait till morning to get more, dont know if that did something to it and I didn't add the chopped chocolate.  .. Smiley

Here are some pics...



supposed to be a close up of the texture but i didn't quite nail it...

so yeah.. I give it 4 stars..

This recipe is great, because it's so fast and in the end you don't have too much cake. I made one of these and the only problem I have is that it's too dry - well, my mistake i nuked it for another 15 seconds... anyway, thanks for sharing! Smiley

I made one tonight and we both enjoyed it very much. I used what I had on hand which was chocolate raspberry hot cocoa and peanut butter chips for the chopped chocolate. I used a Tupperware vent and serve mug since I have no large coffee mugs and finished with 1 minute instead of 30 second to compensate for the lack of ceramic adding heat. I also had some leftover chocolate butter cream in the fridge that I frosted with while hot and it melted into the cake and made it very moist.

Thank You for sharing this!

What we do is use cake mix and applesauce or pumpkin pie filling. Scoop up some cake mix and add one puree or the other until you have a moist batter, then nuke it for a minute at a time until it's cake (time depends on your microwave). This way my daughter can use her organic gluten free-dairy free cake mixes whenever she wants something sweet. Pumpkin and chocolate brownie mix is super delish.

Whoever came up with making a chocolate mug cake/brownie...is evil. Seriously! I can eat a brownie every day now! Not good. lol But soo delicious.

I had tried a few different recipes but never found one I liked. But I have found the perfect recipe! Well, one I like at least. I kind of made it up based on another one...

4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp apple sauce
2 tbsp sour cream
3 tbsp choco chips
1 tsp vanilla

Microwave for 3 minutes.

I like this one. It's more cakey than brownie which I do like. Want more chocolate? Just add more chocolate chips! Smiley And I've made it three or so times and haven't had a problem with it being too dry. It's turned out perfect every time.

Tadah! Made this for DS and yours truly this afternoon. Tasted mighty good. Next time we'd probably put a little raspberry jam halfway in the batter as a layer. And some creme fraiche on top afterwards.
Yeah ok, you can make a brick taste good this way.   Cheesy

Anyho, we were very pleasantly surprised at the result. Scribbled it down in my cookbook. Thanks for posting it.
