The most delicious chocolate cup cake

Sometimes I simply want to eat dessert right now. You know what I’m talking about when I say “mood”? When you have a strong want for cake but can’t be bothered to go out and get it, why not use a bowl or even turn on the oven? Because, let’s face it, I crave cake on a regular basis. But it’s rare that I want to bake a whole cake. A cup cake may help with that. A sumptuous chocolate mug cake, to be exact, that tastes just like a slice of chocolate birthday cake. Only 10 ingredients, 3 minutes, and a microwave are required.

Let’s get started.

What is a chocolate mug cake, exactly?

In my view, nothing beats a simple chocolate treat, and this chocolate cup cake is as simple as it gets. A mug cake is a single-serving cake that can be created in the microwave using few ingredients. And boy, oh boy, is it DELICIOUS. It’s incredibly chocolaty, very delicious, and tastes just like a homemade chocolate cake. Except it’s done in your microwave in a fraction of the time!

This chocolate mug cake has the same ingredients as a full-size chocolate cake, so it’ll be just as tasty as the real thing. This chocolate cup cake, on the other hand, does not need eggs, making it vegan-friendly and using largely dry pantry items!

What is the best way to prepare a cup cake?

Mug cakes are appropriate for all ages and occasions. I used to make these after school with my sister when I was a kid, and I still make them today when I want a cake but don’t feel like cooking a complete cake. And, luckily for you, it’s super simple to put together!

Step 1: In a cup, combine all of the dry ingredients.

How can you improve your chocolate cup cake?

This chocolate cup cake is delicious on its own, but if you want to take it to the next level, we recommend using a couple (or all!) of these extra ingredients!

  • Add a dollop of peanut butter: In my opinion, this isn’t optional. I HIGHLY suggest mixing a large dollop of peanut butter into the mixture before microwaving your mug cake.
  • Add a tablespoon of chocolate chips: To make this mug cake really chocolaty, we like to add a tablespoon of chocolate chips.
  • Drizzle with caramel: One of the finest taste combinations is chocolate and caramel, and this is no exception. You may create your own or buy ready-made!
  • Whipped cream on top: We keep a can of whipped cream in our refrigerator at all times. You know, in case of an emergency. Finish your luscious chocolate cup cake with a big dollop of whipped cream for a light, creamy finish.
  • Finish with a dollop of ice cream: A chocolate cake a la mode is the only thing better than a chocolate cake. For the ultimate sundae, top your chocolate cup cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of hot fudge sauce.
