If you’re looking for a yummy dessert that’s a cinch to make and a mouthful to eat (and to say) then this Mocha Mud Mug Cake is the treat for you. It’s literally a 5-minute mug cake, one serve only, perfect for having some ‘me time’ to yourself at the end of the night. There’s a chocolate kick we know you’re looking for, as well as the yummy flavours of coffee, to help get you through your life.


  1. Spray the inside of your chosen mug or grease with butter.

  2. Either in the mug, or in a bowl, add all of the ingredients and stir until completely combined.

  3. Make sure the inside rim of the mug is free from excess batter, wiping or required, and then pop in the microwave.

  4. Cook on high power until the cake has risen and looks moist, but not wet, on the top. Check it every 30 seconds, for 2-3 minutes. Watch carefully, as the cake becomes dry when overcooked.

  5. Allow to rest and cool before eating, topped with cream or ice cream.
