Who loves chocolate? Mug cake recipes are floating around on the internet like mad, but I was reminded that I wanted to try this little dish of decadence when I saw THIS POST by my friend Ann at Sumptuous Spoonfuls. She adds red wine to hers, which I just love…and it got me thinking about all the different ways you could dress this mug cake up! What a pretty conclusion to a fancy dinner party or tea event! I was afraid to microwave my fine china, so I headed to the nearest thrift store in search of a pretty, microwave-safe mug. I LOVE desserts served in teacups, but I don’t think microwaving fine china is a good idea. I found the mug pictured above. There was only one on the shelf. Kismet 🙂

Mug cake is oh-so-moist, chocolaty and delicious! So pleased I discovered this easy dessert!

In a medium-large, microwave-safe mug, combine:

4 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

5 Tablespoons sugar

3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

pinch salt

Mix well…and then add:

3 Tablespoons whole milk

3 Tablespoons melted butter

1 slightly beaten egg

3 Tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 teaspoons Grand Marnier (orange liqueur)

Microwave on high for one minute and 30 seconds. The cake should be cooked but very moist. Garnish with more chocolate chips, orange zest and a dollop of real whipped cream!


add 2 teaspoons chambord and garnish with raspberries!

add 2 teaspoons creme de menthe and garnish with mint leaves and chopped up Ande’s mints

add 2 teaspoons banana or coconut liqueur and garnish with toasted coconut and a little umbrella

add 2 teaspoons Bailey’s irish cream…

add 2 teaspoons Kahlua…

the possibilities are endless!
