5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Chocolate mug cake anyone? We're so excited to share with you our 5 minute chocolate mug cake recipe! A chocolate cake that can be whipped up in 5 minutes sounds like heaven to me!

This 5 minute chocolate mug cake is so good it’s hard to believe it doesn’t take hours to make. Plus, its baked in the microwave so you don’t even need to worry about pre-setting your oven for this one.

The chocolate sponge is so light and fluffy and you can choose your favourite nut butter for the sponge cake. We use our super smooth velvety Peanut Drizzle Dunx Dip. I definitely recommend eating this as soon as the microwaves beeps. Ok maybe leave it for a minute so you don't burn yourself.

As always this recipe is made with simple natural, plant-based and gluten-free ingredients. There are just 6 ingredients in this one so there are no excuses not to try it! We hope you all love it!
