Gooey Chocolate Mug Cake

A three-ingredient cake that can be made in the microwave!


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Mug


  • Combine your ingredients well, then spoon into 1 large mug or 2 small mugs. This will rise up then settle back down. Microwave for 50-60 seconds on high. Do not overcook. Grab your spoon and dig in while still warm.


  • Add ice-cream on top to make a chocolate lava cake type dessert. 
  • Add Chocolate chips to add a more chocolate flavor? 


  • The cake was surprisingly super moist and had a cake texture. Eating it plain was too plain. I need ice cream to make it sweeter. With just three ingredients I would gladly make it again.
