How to make a delicious chocolate cake in under 5 minutes using only a mug and a microwave!


  • 35g of flour.
  • 35g of hot chocolate powder (33%).
  • 10g of brown sugar.
  • A pinch of bicarbonate of soda.
  • 55ml of milk.
  • 15ml of raisin oil.
  • 3 drops of vanilla extract.
  • 1 spoonful of peanut butter.


Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a microwave safe mug. Then add the milk, raisin oil, and vanilla extract and mix with a small whisk or fork until you obtain a smooth cake mix.

Add a spoonful of peanut butter to the center of the mix and then swirl it around a bit to marble the peanut butter into the mixture.

Cook in the microwave at 900W for 1′10′′, or just 1 minute if you like your chocolate cakes gooey, like I do.

Remove the mug carefully from the microwave and leave it to cool before digging in, enjoy!
