Chocolate Cake in a Cup

How many time has it happen that you crave for that chocolaty goodness of yummy  warm chocolate cake but for that either you have to drive down to a bakery or bake on on your own. That is a real mood killer.

With me there is one more issue Tanmaya won't help me finish the cake and I would end up eating all of which is of course neither healthy nor figure perfect ;)

Yesterday I found a great receipt for quick chocolate cake in a cup which would take exactly 5 mins and would give you a perfect 1 serving cake with just 2 items to clean afterwards. Least clean up is a bonus.


  1. Baking flour : 4tbsp
  2. Sugar: 4tbsp
  3. Unsweetened Coco Powder: 2 tbsp
  4. Milk: 3 tbsp
  5. Oil: 3tbsp
  6. Bitten Egg: 2 tbsp
  7. Chocolate chips: 2 tbsp
  8. Vanilla Essence: a dash.


Take a microwave safe coffee mug.
Mix all the ingredients in the cup.
Place the cup in the microwave and microwave for 3 minutes.
You would see the batter start to crown over the top of the mug. Don't worry, it is supposed to happen and eventually it would collapse once the heat stops.
Thats it your cake is ready. 

Easy right!!!! 
eat directly out of the cup our serve it on a plate totally upto you. Either ways it would be equally yummy and satisfying .
I found this recipe on a e-book that I downloaded on my IPAD. The book is called "5-Minute Recipes"

So what are you waiting for ladies go ahead and satisfy you craving for hot chocolaty yummy cake without a lot of work, clean up or spending to much time.

The crown has collapsed

with little garnishing and creativity it would be a perfect party dessert. Your guests would really be amazed with it.

And do't forget to let me know how it turned out.

Till then Happy Blogging
