Gluten-Free Chocolate Mug Cake

No fancy presentation is needed for a delicious mug cake. This mug cake is basically a gooey brownie in a mug! Mug cakes are a quick and easy treat, especially when you have no desire to bake an entire cake. Here’s what you’ll need:

Gluten-Free Chocolate Mug Cake

Course Dessert
Servings 1 person


  • 2 tbsp dairy-free butter
  • 2 tbsp water
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder


  • Melt the butter in a mivrowave-safe mug.
  • Add water, vanilla and salt and stir until smooth.
  • Add sugar, cocoa powder and flour and stir until all the lumps are out.
  • Cook in the microwave for 30 – 40 seconds. If you want less of a lava cake texture and more cake, you can cook it for 10 seconds more. You'll have to adjust the cooking time since all microwaves cook differently.
  • Top with some Cocowhip!


Sometimes I’ll top the mug cake with a few dairy-free chocolate chips before putting in the microwave.
