Mug Cake Ingredients

You likely already have all the ingredients for this chocolate mug cake recipe on hand. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cocoa powder: Two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder ensures a rich chocolate cake.
  • Baking soda: Baking soda acts as a leavening agent, which means it helps the mug cake rise.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor of the mug cake, but it won’t make it taste salty.
  • Milk: Milk keeps the cake batter from drying out during the microwaving process.
  • Oil: A neutral oil, such as canola oil, keeps the batter moist without adding flavor.
  • Water: A tablespoon of water helps create the perfect texture.
