Chocolate Mug Cake

This was totally accidental and we loved it. I had some cooking chocolate I wanted to finish it (surprised I even had some). The thing is you really can’t go wrong with chocolate, butter, eggs and sugar. But yes, the proportions have to be right. Else you’d end up with scrambled chocolate eggs (no its not a good idea!). Do try this at home. Very easy, very tasty. Know the ‘Dairy milk Silk’ commercial? Yeah that was us towards the end of the pot of molten gooey-chocolaty goodness. Ok I’ll stop.


½ cup baking or regular chocolate (chopped)
¼ cup butter
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp drinking chocolate powder (optional)
¼ cup milk


Using a double boiler method, melt the chocolate and butter. Or simply microwave it for 2 mins with 30 second intervals to stir it till it has completely melted. Take it off the heat and add the sugar and yolk. Add vanilla and then flour along with the drinking chocolate. At this point it does not look good but don’t be disheartened. Add the milk and mix well. It will resemble cake batter. Now pour into individual ramekins or one oven safe coffee mug. Individual portions in small containers need 10 minutes and a coffee mug would need about 20 minutes in the oven at 180C. Get it out and don’t wait for it to cool. It’s perfect for chilly winters. Quick and easy. Couldn’t get any better 🙂
