Spicy Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

Sometimes you just need a fast dessert recipe – stat. That’s why I love this hot chocolate mug cake. It has a little bit of spice, a whole lot of chocolate and it’s ready in less than 10 minutes (because it’s cooked in the microwave).

It’s made with no eggs, so if you have an allergy, you’re in the clear.

Recipe Variations

Here are a few different recipe variations so you can enjoy your own personalized microwave chocolate cake.

  • Swap gluten free flour for all purpose flour if that’s what you have on hand. Please note, there is a chance this recipe won’t come out the same. So be warned.
  • Leave out the cayenne if you don’t want it spicy.
  • Swap the sugar for coconut sugar, brown sugar or whatever you have on hand.
  • Use whatever milk you have in the fridge if you don’t have unsweetened almond milk.

Can I Make This In The Oven Instead?

This deliciously gooey chocolate mug cake was tested in the microwave, so I don’t recommend putting it in the oven.

Feel free to experiment how you see fit, but there is always the chance this won’t work out for you.

How to Make a Spicy Chocolate Mug Cake?

This is one of the easiest recipes you’ll make. You simply have to toss a few ingredients in a microwave-safe mug, stir it, and zap it for 7 minutes.

Important tip: Make sure your mug is microwave safe and it’s big enough for your batter. It will rise while being cooked.
