Chocolate Mocha Mug Cake - an easy microwave recipe for making a mocha mug cake

Mug cakes are a delicious dessert, and so easy to make!  This cake comes together in only a few minutes, so it is perfect when you want a quick dessert just for yourself, because you need a quick coffee and chocolate fix.

Chocolate Mocha Mug Cake - an easy microwave dessert that is ready in minutes.

And a Mocha Mug Cake makes sense, since after all it is made in a coffee cup! Mug cakes can be a little tricky, since it is easy to over cook them. I found that this cake cooks in just 1 1/2 minutes in my microwave, and any more than that and it dries out.  The difference between perfect and overcooked is short, so make sure you check the cake after 1 1/2 minutes and only cook it more if it still looks wet on top.

Mug Cake Batter

To make the Mocha flavor I mixed coffee into the batter. A strong, bold coffee will give you the most intense flavor. I also added in a few chocolate chips to the batter to add in extra bits of chocolate throughout the batter.
