Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix sugar, flour, milk, olive oil, cocoa powder, egg, vanilla extract, and salt together in a large microwave-safe mug.

  • Heat in microwave until center of cake is done, about 2 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Because this recipe makes such a big mug cake, split the batter in two for a smaller cake. Microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute 50 seconds or until a tooth pick comes out clean. If the edges of the cake begin to bubble take out of microwave immediately.

Substitute 4 teaspoons stevia extract for the sugar, if desired.

Substitute vegetable oil for the olive oil, if desired.
