Five Minute Chocolate Cake

I have been wanting to have a go at this cake for a long time. It has to be the quickest cake in history. Two minutes to prepare, and three to cook, can't be too hard. I didn't really follow the directions, I just bunged it all in the mug, stirred and hoped for the best. So here it is.

Five Minute Chocolate Cake
Original recipe from Dizzy Dee's Blog


4 Tablespoons cake flour
4 tablespoons caster sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil


1. Put all ingredients into mug, stir.
2. Place mug into microwave, cook for 3 minutes on high.
3. Tip mug upside down an shake slightly above bowl, cake will fall out.
4. Add some icecream and eat!

Ingredients mixed

Cake just out of the microwave

Ready to eat

The result is not like a normal cake, but quite gluggy and dense. More like a pudding. Definately needed ice-cream. Not something I would make for guests, but if I was needing a quick chocolate fix, is worth the effort.

This cake certainly isn't restaurant quality, but considering how it's made, it isn't bad. I suggest using chocolate chips as well. They melt as you cook it and give the cake that extra chocolate burst you just have to love. Plus, it adds a bit of moisture so it isn't as dense.

I had started to put chocolate chips in a while ago, definately makes it yummier!
