This single serving microwave chocolate chip mug cake starts with a fluffy brown sugar cake base mixed with chocolate chips. It cooks in just 1 minute and tastes like a chocolate chip cookie that got turned into a cake.
Update! I’ve created a video to go along with this post, showing you just how easy this is to make!
Do you ever have one of those days where it just isn’t your day? And you just want to hide in bed or sit in a dark corner and wait for the day to be over so nothing else goes wrong? I had one of those days yesterday.
In the morning I woke up to rain, which was fine, since we are in a serious drought. But the rain was accompanied by some really strong winds which knocked over one of my precious fruit trees. This was then followed by my shower rod suddenly crashing down into the tub (luckily no one was in the shower at the time). When I stepped outside for 30 seconds to see my tree, I managed to miss a FedEx delivery that needed a signature. (I was seriously only outside for 30 seconds.)
Then, while in a rush cooking a dish, I sliced my finger. It was at this point that I wanted to stop doing anything else and just wait for the day to be over. A few more things happened that I won’t get to into. But yeah, it was definitely not my day. And I kept thinking through the whole day that I really needed some comfort food, aka, this chocolate chip mug cake.
This mug cake really hit the spot. It was warm, fluffy, and reminded me of my childhood. It’s a small, single serving cake, which is perfect since I would have consumed twice as much otherwise. And it comes together in about five minutes.

Chocolate Chip Mug Cake
- 4 tbsp all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp brown sugar lightly packed
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp low fat milk
- 1/8 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips
- Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips into a microwave safe mug. This is a small cake so you can use an 8 oz mug and it should just reach the top when finished cooking. You can also use an oversized mug, but the cake will be lower in the mug. Mix with a small, sturdy whisk until a smooth batter forms and no lumps remain.
- Stir in half of the chocolate chips. Sprinkle remaining half over surface. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. Let cool a few minutes before eating.
