Hi everybody! It’s Kaitlyn here and today I did some cooking! It wasn’t the usual type of cooking. Today I made three different recipes for cake in a mug. READ TILL THE END for the reviews on each recipe before cooking.
The first recipe I found was on YouTube by the user of Rafael Gomez. Here is the recipe and my review. These are opinions by my mom and I and our results.
YouTube cake in a mug
2 tbsp. of sugar
2 tbsp. Self-rising Flour
2 tbsp. of cocoa
1 tbsp. of oil (not specified but I used veg. oil)
1 tbsp. milk
Chocolate chips (optional)
Get a mug. Any size will do, but big mugs give the best results.
Mix flour sugar and cocoa together.
Add the egg be sure egg is mixed in really good!!!!!
After the egg is well mixed, in add the oil and milk and chocolate chips if you want
Stir for 1 minute
Microwave for 2 and a half minutes
Voila! You have a cake!
Let me just tell you, this cake is… this cake is… the worst cake. I did not like it here is why.
- It was really ‘egg-y’. I dropped it on my plate it bounced. (Insert serious face) I’m not kidding.
- It was not very sweet. I put barely any chocolate in it and the recipe did not call for vanilla.
- I could tell from the time I put it in my mouth something was missing. I didn’t know what but there was.
When I took it out of the microwave I said, “this smells really good.” It did smell really good but it tasted not good.

OKAY on to the next recipe
This was another recipe I got from YouTube called
“Chocolate cake in a mug” made by Kaboom989’s channel. Let’s get started
4 tbsp. of flour
4 tbsps. sugar
*mix as you go*
2 tbsp. chocolate milk mix
1 egg mix well
3 tbsps. Milk and veg. oil
Put in microwave for 2 1\2 minutes.
This one was okay, better the last one. I added way to many chocolate chips. It was moist, tasted like cake, and had flavor.
3 Out of 5
This one came from Pinterest. I can’t find the exact pin, but I will post it when I do.
2 tbsp. flour
2 tsp. of cocoa powder
3 ½ tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. milk
Spoon full of peanut butter
Spray mug with cooking spray.
Put all dry ingredients in a mug and mix well
Add milk and oil mix well
Put a scoop of peanut butter on top
Add chocolate chips in top
Cook in microwave for 45 seconds.
This is my favorite one of the three. Try it for yourself! It taste really good. You must add the peanut butter for that extra UMPH!
