chocolate mug cake

okay as promised here is the recipe for the easiest and the most amazing choco lava mug cake in the world. the recipe is from the craft patch blog, but here i give some helpful tips & tweaks you can use while making it. so w/o further ado, here’s the recipe!

you will need:

• 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
• 2 tablespoons of water
• a pinch of salt (skip if using salted butter)
• 2-4 tablespoons of sugar according to your level
• 1-4 tablespoons of flour (you can use either white & wheat flour)
• 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (read note)
• ¼ teaspoon vanilla essence (i ran out of vanilla essence once so i used pancake syrup/maple syrup, it tastes even better!)
• chocolate chips/sprinkles (optional, doesn’t really change/enhance the taste, but it’s a cute add-on)


  1. add the butter in a microwavable mug and melt in the microwave for a minute
  2. add the water, salt (read instruction above) and sugar
  3. you can stir if you want here, or at the very end
  4. add the flour (either flour doesn’t change the taste, but wheat is healthier. if using wheat flour, add slightly less than you would for white flour, because it’s lighter.)
  5. add cocoa powder and vanilla essence
  6. stir.
  7. heat this in the microwave for 30 seconds
  8. top with your favorites & enjoy!
    note: for a more lava consistency, add 1-2 tablespoons of flour (i add 1.5); for a cake-like feel, add 2-4 tablespoons of flour. for this recipe, i use unsalted butter, wheat flour and hershey’s cocoa powder. the quality of cocoa powder is extremely important – this tastes better with good cocoa powder. hope y’all enjoy!)
