3 Minute Chocolate Cake

I recently found a three minute chocolate cake that is absolutely to die for.  You make it in the microwave in a coffee mug and it literally takes 3 minutes to make (and only 35 seconds to bake).  Thanks to Linda at Eating Well, Living Thin for this recipe!  Here’s my slightly altered version of hers!

Recipe – Makes 1

2 Tbsp flour

1 1/2 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 tsp baking powder

Pinch salt

2 Tbsp milk

1 tsp oil

Drop of vanilla extract


  1. Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt until there are no more lumps in the coffee mug.
  2. Add the milk, oil, and vanilla extract and stir until smooth.
  3. Put into the microwave for 35 seconds.  Do not overcook it.  You MIGHT need another 5 seconds, but if you overcook it, it will become rubbery.
  4. Top with whipped cream, powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, or just eat plain!

  1. I’m a chocoholic! Chocolate is (to me) one of the greatest foods. Well, chocolate and sushi and everything Italian cuisine… I love all foods! This three minute chocolate cake sounds delicious and I look forward to making it soon! Thanks for sharing!
