Crazy Cake in a Mug

by Danielle Leavitt ’17

Hot chocolate is always my “go-to” drink in winter when I want to warm up. Just tasting that warm, soothing liquid somehow makes the snow outside disappear.  Recently, I was introduced to another cup of winter wonderland: a moist and chocolaty rich cake that is made entirely in a cup. Taking only minutes to prepare, this easy recipe is cooked in your microwave and will have you satisfied and wanting more! Best of all, it can be made gluten-free!

Dry Ingredients:

  • 5 tbsp flour (gluten free)
  • 4 ½ tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cocoa (unsweetened, most brands are gluten free except Ghirdeli)
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • ½ tsp white vinegar
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 4 1/2 tbsp water

  • Spray the inside of a microwave safe mug with non-stick cooking spray
  • Mix the first 5 dry ingredients
  • After mixing, make 3 depressions in the dry ingredients.
  • Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla in the other and the vegetable oil in the third
  • Pour the water on top
  • Mix well until smooth
  • Microwave for 2 minutes

To make your Crazy Mug Cake taste even better you can add mini marshmallows, chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand are gluten free), M&Ms, sprinkles, shredded coconut, etc. This easy mug cake will not only taste great on a wintery day, but you could even have a cup of hot chocolate along with it!
