MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   This single serving chocolate mug cake uses cake mix and cooks in the microwave in just one minute. No need for eggs, oil, or having to make an entire cake.

Ingredient Chocolate Cake Mix Mug Cake


  •  6 tbsp chocolate cake mix (see note)
  •  1 tbsp water
  •  2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  •  2 tbsp semisweet chocolate chips optional

Instructions (make in your MogoBox 15 oz. Classic White Mug or Glass Mug):


  1. In a microwave-safe mug, add cake mix, water and applesauce. Mix with a mini whisk until batter is smooth. If using chocolate chips, add and stir in 1 tbsp into the batter. Sprinkle remaining over top of the batter.
  2. Cook in the microwave at full power for 1 minute. Allow cake to cool a few minutes before eating.


  • Tested with Pillsbury and Betty Crocker cake mixes.
  • Some people might not keep applesauce on hand, but found that it really helps keep the cake super moist and also helps bind it together better. If you don’t have applesauce on hand, you can use  2 tbsp water and 1/2 tbsp oil (instead of the water and applesauce amounts listed).  The cake stays moist but the crumb is quite loose which is why the applesauce version is preferred.

Cook Time: 1 minute
