Dry mix:

  • 4 tbsp wheat flour
  • 4 tbsp cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp coco powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

Wet mix:


  • To a mixing bowl - add wheat flour,cane sugar,coco powder.
  • Add baking soda to it.Mix well using a whisk.
  • Add milk and oil to it.
  • Add vanilla essence to it. Whisk well so that there are no lumps.
  • The batter should be smooth and creamy.Take a oven safe mug,Transfer batter to oven safe mug.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 20 mins.Insert a toothpick and check - if it comes out clean then the cake is done. If its sticky then baking for few more mins.
  • Serve warm!


  • The mug is quite huge one and so both the kids shared the cake.Make sure to use only oven safe mugs.
  • If your mug is small then pour in 2 mugs and bake.The batter rises well so choose a mug accordiginly.
  • The timing may vary so check after 15 mins then proceed accordingly.
  • I have given timing for oven and not microwave.
  • The cake is mildly sweet, if you prefer you can increase sweetness.I used wheat flour and cane sugar but you can replace it with white flour and regular sugar itself.
  • You can add a 1tbso of choco chips for a more richer version.
