Chocolate Mug Cake

Vanilla and Peanut Butter Mug Cake


  • Spray your mug with cooking spray. Add the dry ingredients to the mug, mix until combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the mug and stir to combine. Make sure to break up any lumps.
  • Once the batter is smooth in the mug, add a tablespoon of chocolate chips or peanut butter to the center of the batter (the cake will rise around some of the peanut butter and chocolate chips leaving some in the middle and some on top!)
  • Cook in the microwave for 60 seconds. Be careful not to overcook it or it will end up dry.
  • Enjoy warm!


  • We do not recommend storing this mug cake recipe for later. After a few hours, the cake becomes stale. Make sure you enjoy this mug cake when it is fresh!
  • If you don't have access to a microwave, you can also bake this mug cake in the oven. Use an oven proof ramekin, and follow the same instructions as if you were using a mug. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
  • For best results, enjoy warm.
