This little 1 minute Choc Blueberry Mug Cake is always a hit in my house with kids and adults alike. Sometimes we even do ‘Dessert Bar’ – throw all the ingredients on the bench and everyone makes their own version of a 1-minute mug cake.

Ingredients (serves 1 | makes 1 mug cake)

  • 1 Egg
  • 3 tbsp Milk (you can use Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, Lactose free or Soy if you need to)
  • 3 tbsp Almond Meal (you could also use Hazelnut meal as an option)
  • 2 - 3 tsp Drinking Chocolate Powder or Cocoa
  • 1 -2 tsp Caster Sugar or Brown Sugar (double the sugar if you use Cocoa instead of drinking chocolate)
  • 1 - 2 squares Dark or Milk Chocolate chopped (or melts or choc bits - whatever you have)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Fresh or Frozen Blueberries


  1. Use any microwave safe container you like really - just make sure the mixture doesn't fill more than 2/3 of the container. For this recipe, I mixed it up in a large coffee cup and then divided evenly between two of the kids tea cups/espresso cups.
  2. To make washing up easier, you can run a tiny amount of butter around the inside of the cup or use cooking spray but this is optional.
  3. Combine all ingredients and mix well with a fork.
  4. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute (based on 1200W microwave).
  5. If you want to make more than 1 at a time, increase the cooking time.


If you don't have a microwave, you can cook these in the oven - they'll just take a little longer. Place them in a shallow baking tray filled with about 1 - 2cm water and cook at 180 degrees celcius and 10 - 12 minutes. Or you could steam them for approximately the same time. Test to see if they are cooked through by inserting a toothpick or skewer into the centre. If it comes out fairly 'clean' they're ready. Don't let them dry out too much - remember they continue to cook for a couple of minutes after they come out.
