Hot Cocoa Cake in a Mug

Cake in a mug! This is one of my favorite desserts for which I usually have everything on hand. But somehow I don’t have any cocoa in the house right now (did I throw it out in the move? I can’t remember!). I headed to Google to see if I could find any other recipe than my usual, and I found this particular recipe. It makes a VERY dense bread-like cake. I used a Creme Brulee hot cocoa mix. Two packets of this mix came out nearly to 9 tablespoons, so that is something I can remember for future hot cocoa cakes!


Hot Cocoa Chocolate Cake (in a Mug) – adapted from


  • 9 tablespoons (2 packets) Land O’ Lakes Creme Brulee Hot Cocoa Mix
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Mix dry ingredients together in large mug.
  2. Add wet ingredients and stir with spoon. Fold ingredients from bottom, making sure to incorporate ALL dry ingredients.
  3. Microwave for 3 minutes (more or less depending on wattage).
  4. Enjoy straight from mug, or turn out into bowl and garnish with a topping of your choice!
