Here's wishing you and your families a Very Happy New Year! 

We can't forget the havoc caused in 2020 by the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic! The experts say that despite the vaccinations that will hold everyone's attention all through 2021, it is wise for us to remain safe. 

For the sake of your families, please continue to follow measures such as hand hygiene, social distancing and the wearing of masks! 

To bring cheer to the New Year, I made this Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake. 


First and foremost, and this is critical, use a microwave-safe mug. 

Second, take a mug of the right size otherwise the cake will simply overflow in the microwave. 

Third, you can adjust the levels of sweetness to suit your individual taste. 

We had the Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake just as it was but you can add vanilla ice cream to it, if you wish! We enjoyed this as I am sure you will too! 


  • All Purpose Flour ( Maida),  3 tbsp
  • Baking Powder, 1/4 tsp
  • Sugar, 3 tbsp
  • Cocoa Powder, 2 tbsp
  • Salt, a pinch
  • Melted Butter, 3 tbsp
  • Milk, 3 tbsp - at room temperature 
  • Vanilla Essence, 1/4 tsp 
  • Chocolate Chips, 1 tbsp
  • Walnut, broken into pieces, 1 tbsp 


In a large mug of about 12 ounces or 355 ml capacity, add one by one, the maida, baking powder, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt, 
Using a fork mix this together
Next add, one by one, the melted butter, milk, vanilla essence, chocolate chips and the walnut pieces.
Mix well together once again to get a smooth batter

Place the mug in the microwave oven and microwave it for 1 minutes 20 seconds on High mode 

Pierce the cake with a toothpick and if it comes out clean that means it is done! 

Serve the Chocolate Mug Cake warm as it is or with vanilla ice cream 


  1. If I have to make it without using a microwave, how do I go about?

  2. Sorry, I am not aware. This recipe is designed to be made in a microwave oven.
