Course Dessert
Servings 2 mug cakes

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • ½ cup chopped milk chocolate

  • Add the oil, vanilla, and sugar, and whisk to combine.
  • Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until just combined.
  • Divide the batter evenly between 2 microwave-safe mugs (10-12 oz each).
  • Microwave each mug for 60-90 seconds until the cakes are done.
