Chocolate Mug Cake


After my sharing my Banana Mug Cake recipe with you, I decided that I wanted to try and make a Chocolate Mug Cake. The first one I made was a little dry, so I reduced the amount of coconut flour in my second attempt and it turned out really moist. I was going to sit on the recipe and share it a bit later, but I decided that I couldn't do that to you, it's too nice and too easy not to share straight away!

This chocolate mug cake literally takes 5 minutes to make - 3 minutes to prepare and 3 minutes to cook. It is also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. You can't go wrong with that!

So, I now have shared three mug cake recipes with you - Banana Mug Cake, Raspberry Vanilla Mug Cake and now this Chocolate Mug Cake. Which one is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below.

Chocolate Mug Cake

Serves: 1


  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder (or extract)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw/organic honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk (or any other milk)


  1. Add the dry ingredients (coconut flour, cacao powder, baking powder) to a large mug and mix.
  2. Add the melted coconut oil and honey; combining with the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the remainder of the wet ingredients; mixing well to combine. (The mixture can get a bit stuck on the sides, so make sure you scrape the sides down)
  4. Microwave for 2 minutes or until cooked through (the mug cake should be soft and springy to touch).
