2 Minute Chocolate Lava Mug Cake

Need a sweet tooth fix & don't want to wait for a cake to bake? Or need to balance special requests for the kids? Mug cakes are awesome & quick to make. And just the right size!

2 Minute Chocolate Lava Mug Cake


6 tablespoons flour mix*

4 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (check source for corn/soy free)

1/4 teaspoon baking powder (corn-free)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg – beaten or alternative

3 tablespoons milk or water

1 tablespoon oil


Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Pour into regular size coffee mug for dramatic lava lift or large mug to contain cake.

Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. If still gooey, nuke for about 30 more seconds.


*Flour mix - this is my favorite & so far most versatile:

  • 1 part sorghum flour

  • 1/2 part white rice flour

  • 1/2 part brown rice flour

  • 2/3 part arrowroot flour

  • 1/2 part tapioca flour
