Chocolate Peppermint Mug Cake

Are you ready for some mouth watering Christmas yumminess to share this season? Well, get out your recipe books and add this cake to your list! I know I am always looking for fun treats to make around the holidays. I love reading all your blog posts about the treats you make for your friends and families. Let me tell you – we enjoy all desserts – but this mug cake by far is the winner!! Easy ingredients and NO OVEN BAKING. Seriously. I saw the original recipe on the family kitchen. But of course I couldn’t leave it alone. I had to add a little Christmas flair to it! So please pull up a cup (but leave it empty) so you can fill it with this delicious chocolate peppermint mug cake! {Did I mention you don’t even need to use your oven for this? Just checking!}


{If this picture doesn’t make you want one right now, well then these easy directions will!}




4 Tbs self rising flour (I’m pretty sure the self rising part is important)
4 Tbs white granulated sugar
3 Tbs cocoa powder
3 Tbs Nutella (Yeah, I said Nutella)
3 Tbs Olive or Vegetable oil (I used Veggie)
1 egg
3 Tbs PEPPERMINT Mocha creamer (This is the trick! Or you can replace with any flavored creamer you enjoy! Do I hear Caramel anyone?? Not a creamer fan? Use MILK!)

1. Mix everything together in a small mixing bowl.
2. Pour mix into one very large Christmasy (it’s a word!) coffee mug or 2 regular sized mugs. Fill your mug about HALF WAY because the mix WILL rise!
3. MICROWAVE (That’s right!) for 1 1/2 – 2 minutes! Times are approximate depending on your microwave. (Check with a toothpick like you would a real cake to see if it is cooked all the way through to the bottom!)
4. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup like I did or with frosting and ENJOY!!!!

Wouldn’t these cakes be cute to make as gifts for neighbors or co-workers? Be forewarned though! If you follow these easy directions - you may need to invest in bigger mugs like this!


Cheers! I hope you enjoy making this Chocolate Peppermint Mug Cake! It is a new favorite for our family! What is YOUR favorite Christmas treat?

Yummy. I've never micorwaved a cake before...does it have the same consistency as an oven baked cake?

Elizabeth said...

Make sure it's a microwaveable mug! That could get dicey!

I'm bringing coconut creamer on wrap night and expect you to have the other ingredients. ;)
