Molten Mug Cake


This simple mug cake is for when you get a chocolate craving that needs to be seen to! *Also works well for cake cravings* …. I adapted it from BBC Good Food and it’s the best microwave mug cake yet!


  • 4 Tbsp Plain
  • 2 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 2Tbsp apple sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • Small splash of vanilla
  • Optional: 3 Tbsp. chocolate chips
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon peanut butter or toffee in the middle (I used toffee in the photos)


  1. Add dry ingredients to mug, mix well with a fork.
  2. Add egg, mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour in milk, oil and vanilla, mix well.
  4. Add chocolate chips if desired. Push a dollop of peanut butter/toffee/caramel into the centre of the batter if desired.
  5. Put mug into microwave and cook for 2-3 min


***I have also shared this mix into cupcake liners and baked for a few mins – they turn out great! and are like mini cupcake brownies***
