Cake in a Mug, MellyGurl Style

Maha and I decided to try that chocolate Cake in a Mug thing we keep seeing all over social media and it works!! I was really skeptical at first, but I kept seeing it demonstrated in videos all over Facebook so I decided to try it for myself. Here is what we did, MellyGurl style:


4 tbsp All purpose flour
2 tbsp Cocoa powder
3 tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Baking soda
3 tbsp Milk
2-3 tbsp Oil (we did 3)
1 tbsp Chocolate chips (recipe calls for 1 tsp but we’re females so we used tbsp 🤗)
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract (recipe calls for it, we did not use this either)
*We added Hershey syrup because … We wanted it 😜


  1. Put all dry ingredients into a microwave safe coffee mug and stir together well
  2. Add all wet ingredients, make sure all dry ingredients are mixed in real good
  3. Add some extra Hershey syrup on top …. Oh yeah
  4. Microwave on high 2 minutes
  5. Let cool 3-4 minutes

I would guess you can add nuts and caramel to this as well. Even sprinkle some powdered sugar on top after cooking! Just use your imagination and let me know how it turned out! Can’t wait to hear from you 😍 Enjoy!!

If you did it right, it should look a little somethin’ like this!
