Hey Folks! The Visionific Organisation presents flog, a food blog for midnight snacking.

We will be sharing some short, sweet and delicious recipes which will be super easy and you can pull them off easily, it may also become your hobby!

Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

This Recipe is a personal favourite and is also a great start to weekly flogs. They are super easy to make in case you are bored, or just want to hone your cooking skills. This recipe requires basic baking items otherwise I’ll always write a handier item!


  1. Refined/Wheat Flour – 3 Tbsp.

  2. Sugar (Can be crystallized, refined or powdered) – 2 tbsp.

  3. Cocoa Powder – 2 tbsp.

  4. Baking Powder (Not soda XD) – ¼ tsp.

  5. Milk (Any type of milk can be used) – 3 tbsp.

  6. Vanilla Essence (Not necessary but adds great essence!) – ½ tsp

  7. Refined Oil (only or coconut) – 2 tbsp.

  8. A cup (duh!)

  9. Choco chip/ chocolate, Powdered sugar and hot milk (totally optional)

Steps -

  1. Start by taking a cup and mixing all the dry ingredients, namely – flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

  2. Once a dry mixture is prepared add all the wet ingredients – Vanilla Essence, Oil, Milk.

  3. The batter should be of ribbon consistency, as shown. We are not professionals, so mistakes tend to happen, so if your batter is too liquid, add the flour and if your batter is too thick, add the milk (according to your estimation).

  4. Put it in the microwave and set the timer for one minute. Mine usually take 45-50 seconds so keep checking!

  5. If you don’t have a microwave you can put it in an oven or use a deep container, put it on flame and place the mug in it and keep checking the mug. Any of the three methods can be used but the microwave one is the best.

  6. Also, you can make the recipe better. These are my add-ins to the recipe that it is best! After your cake is done, take 3 tsp of hot milk with the same amount of chocolate in any form. Next, mix while the milk to hot and pour the syrup in the mug. For more sweetness and decoration purpose, you can sift powdered sugar over the mug.


  1. You can use two spoons, one of medium size and other the small one, and then you can measure tbsp. by medium-sized spoon and tsp. by small-sized spoon. Estimation in a recipe works (sometimes)

  2. You should see no lumps (unmixed bubbles) while mixing, they cause a disturbance in baking.

  3. After baking the mug cake, use any pointed things like toothpick or knife and insert it in the cake. If there are no residues in the knife/ toothpick after you take it out, your cake is cooked, if there is any sort of batter/liquid stuck to it, bake the cake a little more.

Thank You! Meet you next week!
