Chocolate lava mug cake

Couple days ago i made a chocolate lava cake that wasn’t very molten in the middle because i over-baked it. Today i’m trying another chocolate lava cake, this time in the microwave.


  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp chocolate chips
  • pinch salt
  • 4 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp oil


In large mug, combine together first 4 ingredients. Mix in remaining ingredients until well incorporated. Microwave 30-45 seconds.

I microwaved mine for 45 seconds and it came out a little overdone again. The center is not as molten as i’d like. Everyone’s microwave is different so a little trial & error is necessary. Next time i might nuke it just 30 seconds since i’m partial to a really molten center. The taste is chocolatey and not too sweet. The texture is unfortunately a little rubbery, perhaps due to the fact that it was over-nuked. So i topped it with ice-cream and devoured it since ice-cream makes everything taste better! 🙂
