Easy Chocolate Mug Cake (video)

Easy Chocolate Mug Cake

While writing this I’m still amazed how good this chocolate mug cake turned out to be. It is not only very simple, but also healthy. I can’t really explain to you why this recipe turned out to be so rich, sweet, moist and fudgy without the use of for example eggs. Anyhow, I had to add raspberries to this mug cake, because chocolate cake and raspberries are the best combination, right?

This chocolate mug cake is so easy to make, because you can actually make it in a (oven resistant) mug and it will take you literally one minute to prepare this chocolate cake. When I have guest I make a couple of mugs, top them with berries, cacao powder and coconut and it really looks like a store bought cake.

You could say that you slaved all day in the kitchen to make this chocolate cake, but the truth is that this cake is done in minutes. I’m not kidding you….

Easy Chocolate Mug Cake You could use a microwave to make this mug cake and the cake will literally be done in 40 seconds, however I don’t use a microwave and don’t mind waiting a few minutes more.

I would love to see your creations and toppings of this delicious chocolate mug cake. So don’t forget to share this with me on social media with #thegreencreator

This healthy plant based gluten- and sugar free chocolate mug cake is the easiest cake you will ever make. With just a few minutes and some berries as a topping you will have the most delicious moist and fudgy chocolate cake ready.



  • 4 tbsp cocao powder
  • 2,5 tbsp coconut flour (or any other flour you wish)
  • pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • 3 tsp maple syrup or date syrup
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 34 tablespoons milk of choice (I used almond milk) add more if the mixture is too dry, but it should also not be too wet
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix very well. Then add the rest, stir very well and transfer to a little oven dish or even a coffee mug (should be oven resistant). Bake in a 350F/ 175 degrees C oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. If you don’t want to eat it straight out of the dish, be sure to wait for the cake to cool before removing it from the dish.


You can also make this recipe in the microwave. You will then not need an oven-proof dish, but only a mug. Your cake will literally be done in 40 seconds.
