What’s a Mug Cake?
Mug cakes are genius! The batter is whisked together quickly, poured into coffee mugs, and popped in the microwave for a little over a minute. So, you go from ‘cravings to satisfied’ in less than five minutes! These little beauties are moist and have double the chocolate because we use both cacao and chocolate chips in these mini cakes.
And There are No Leftovers!
Couples let’s face it, we don’t need to slowly whittle away at a cake for days after baking. That’s why our cakes are always ‘mini’. Satisfy your craving and move on without over indulging. Find our Orange Upside Down Cake here, Vanilla Buttermilk Cake here, Vanilla Strawberry Cake here.

What you need: two microwave safe mugs, dark chocolate chips, and if you want to make this recipe gluten free, Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour.
A delicious, moist double chocolate cake made in under five minutes! Creamy drizzle of icing optional.

- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 cup +1 tablespoon organic granulated sugar

- 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
- a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar for garnish if desired
- 2 tablespoons cream
- 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
Whisk together all dry ingredients, add melted coconut oil and milk and whisk until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into two mugs and cook one at a time in microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds. (all microwaves are different, your cooking time may vary a few seconds either way)
When cake is done, carefully remove from microwave and allow to cool a bit. If desired, drizzle with chocolate cream.
Add cream to small sauce pan on medium heat. Add chocolate chips and whisk until melted and smooth. Turn off heat. Drizzle on mug cakes right before serving.
