Baby it’s Cold Outside Cake in a Mug! (GF or regular)


You know those days when you just want a piece of delicious chocolate cake?  Especially with the winter weather blowing through and hybernation mode setting in.  Sometimes you need chocolate and you need it now!  Fortunately I do have a recipe for you!  You likely have all of the ingredients in your pantry at this moment and it whips up in about 5 minutes!  Does it get any better than that?

And don’t kid yourself…this recipe definitely isn’t “healthy” but I like it because it definitely has the bonus of built-in-portion-control.  Once you get to the end of your mug….there’s no more!  And it’s sure to satify your sweet tooth.

So rummage through your pantry and get baking!


3 tbsp gluten free or regular flour (I used brown rice flour)

1/8 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp white sugar

1 tbsp oil

1 tbsp cocoa powder

4-5 tbsp milk of your choice (I’ve used almond, coconut and cow’s milk with good results)


1. Mix ingredients together well in a mug.

2. Microwave batter on high for 90-120 seconds or until cooked through.  Allow to cool for a minute and enjoy!!!  I added some mini chocolate chips for a garnish 🙂
