Caffè Mocha Mug Cake


    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cacao/cocoa
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • a pinch fine sea salt
    • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 1 Tablespoon espresso powder*
    • 5 Tablespoons milk (I used unsweetened Cashew)
    • 2 Tablespoons safflower oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 Tablespoon chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli Bittersweet)
    • whipped cream (optional)
    • chocolate syrup (optional)

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

    1. Add flour, cacao, sugar, baking powder, salt, espresso powder, milk, oil, and vanilla to coffee mug {or measuring cup}.
    2. Whisk until ingredients are thoroughly combined.
    3. Drop in the chocolate chips. Stir if you wish, or just let them bake in where they land.
    4. Place in microwave and cook on HIGH for 75 to 85 seconds.** Cake will be done when it springs back when touched.
    5. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup {if desired} and serve with a spoon.
    6. Careful, it will be HOT!


    • *I tried using 1 teaspoon of espresso powder, but I couldn’t taste it at all. I bumped it up to 1 Tablespoon and can still barely taste it in the background. Adjust according to your own tastes.
    • **My microwave is 1000 watts.
    • 75 seconds was very gooey, if that’s what you like.
    • 80 seconds was still a bit gooey, which isn’t bad.
    • 85 seconds was baked through and had more like a traditional cake texture.
    • A 10 ounce coffee mug was used to make this mug cake. It puffs up while cooking, but did not overflow.
