Servings 1


  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter 28g
  • 1 ounce of dark chocolate 28g
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • A generous 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour a bit less than a standard measuring cup
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 Lindor Dark Chocolate Truffles or other chocolate chunks/chips for that extra chocolatey surprise in the middle


  • In a microwave-safe mug (10-12oz), combine the butter and 1 ounce of dark chocolate. Microwave in 15-20 second intervals until melted and well mixed.
  • Add the milk and sugar, then mix thoroughly with a fork.
  • Sift in the dry ingredients—flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gently stir with the same fork, making sure everything is nicely combined. Don’t forget to scrape along the edges!
  • Nestle those chocolate truffles in the center (no need to push them all the way to the bottom).
  • Clean up the edges of the mug if needed, then pop it in the microwave for 60-70 seconds.
  • Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, and voila—indulge in your homemade molten lava mug cake!


A quick note: When measuring flour, fluff it up with a fork first, then add it to the tablespoon measure. Wipe off any excess flour above the rim of the spoon for accurate measurements. Enjoy your delightful treat!
