2 minutes chocolate cake- microwave,low fat and eggless

This cake is soft and spongy,not like the rubbery spongy texture that sometime mug cakes turn into, but more like a real cake ,just good enough to satisfy the craving for a chocolate cake, say at 2 pm on a lazy Sunday afternoon and also not to forget the fact that this is low fat- oil or butter free you almost can't believe it until you try it yourself

all purpose flour:4 tbs
sugar: 2 tbs
coco powder: 2 tbs
(ratio of two part flour,one part sugar and one part coco makes it easy to remember)
instant coffee granules- 1 tsp
baking powder-1/4 tsp
milk (I used 2%,if you don't care, then never mind, use full fat) 8 tbs or more to get the consistency required.
vanilla extract -1/4 tsp
cinnamon -a dash(optional)
  • mix the flour,coco powder,sugar,coffee,baking powder together in a microwave safe mug,if making a bigger batch do this step in a large mixing bowl
  • add in the milk and whisk for a couple of minutes ,until all the lumps are gone and a cake batter consistency is obtained 
  • add more water if the batter is too thick to manage .make sure to reach the bottom of the mug with the wire whisk or fork to ensure no dry flour is sticking around.
  •  add in the vanilla mix.
  • microwave on high for one minute,check for the top, if dry and set remove and cool ,if still wet then microwave for another 10 or 15 sec,until not overcook!
  • cool and serve . Believe me ,it is very enjoyable just plain but still  you can dust the extra icing sugar or do a tiny weenie frosting for a "cupcake" feel, if you want .
Here is a quick video tutorial :
Thank you for visiting !


  1. I did not understand the ratio it is mentioned as 4 tbs flour 2 tbs sugar 2 tbs coco ,then how is it 1:1:1 ??

    1. Thank you for stopping by my recipe ,I do notice the ratios were mentioned wrong :ratio of one part flour,one part sugar and one part coco makes it easy to remember,thank you for pointing it out ,it is two part flour not one ,now corrected.hope you enjoy the recipe.

  2. Can you substitute whole wheat flour (atta) instead?! Or would that not rise when microwaved?

  3. How many calories in this?
